The acting in this film will go down in history, it’s as simple as that. Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman give truly special, career-defining performances that far outshine the rest of the film itself.

However, I could definitely see this being a strong contender for adapted screenplay, I’m not really sure what would beat it right now.
