This is major, Scott. Agents and producers will be calling you. Get ready and make the most of this opportunity.

Best of luck.

Congrats, Scott! That's awesome. I come here every so often and I'm glad to hear that. (I originally came here because of your participation on Wordplay.)

wow! congrats! very impressive.
i just did a little digging...

since 1991 there's never been less than 3500 entries per year, and sometimes up to 6000. only 300 of those make the quarterfinals and only 120 make the semi-finals.

that's an incredible achievement scott. best of luck going forward!

What with James Moran's release of Severance here in the UK and you making the semis of the Nicholls, it's on-line champagne all round! Way to go. That's frickin' awesome.

GREAT! The time for Scott the Writer approaches...

 
At 5:22 AM, Blogger Piers said...

w00t!

I hope you're doing some celebrating already.

 
At 7:58 AM, Blogger Brett said...

That'll do, pig. That'll do.

If you weren't such an annoyingly decent and deserving guy, I'd probably feel more envy and less happiness, but you put me in the position of having no damned choice but to wish you continued good luck.

You're really starting to piss me off that way.

Don't stop. ;-)

Congrats, Scott. Absolute thrill. Years of hard work do pay off. Top 108 - fantastic. Had my fingers crossed that you would make the cut.

Good luck.

Congrats! Although I'm so late you're probably recovering from your celebrating by now. Hope this year is a great one for you

what awesome news... bask in it, baby

Great news Scott! But I worry.
I'm half-way through my first script and I was eager to send to your sixty-dollar note offer so you could bash it properly. Now it seems that, maybe you won't be around to do the job! You'll be "taking meetings." Your cell phone bill will be as high as a teennager's. Your foot will be in dozens of doors, and metaphors for potential success, or rather, your handle, will become Scott the Screenwriter! Anyway, I hope you win a Nichol this time around.

Congratulations!!

I'm so delighted for you Scott! I'll keep all my digits crossed for you for the last round. :)

YOWZA!!! Great news!!!!

 
At 8:35 AM, Blogger ScriptWeaver said...

I'm a little late, but congrats! Alas, I didn't make the cut, so you'll have to represent the Scribosphere!

Of course I'm late... but... "You GO, boy!"
