#TheBitchList2019

Hi everyone- Here are the screenplays that Hollywood gatekeepers hope get greenlit in 2019. Please see the front page of this site for how the nomination process works.

Our Top 5 script writers on this list receive a free version of the latest Final Draft software. Thank you again so much to our sponsor in helping inclusion be normalized.

Things to notice this year: #WOC rule. Multiple stories for Asian/Asian-American woman leads made the list, ala the Crazy Rich Asians effect. One writer, an Asian-American woman has two scripts on the list- Kristy Lowrey. Black teen girl/women leads are also prominent.

Circle of Confusion has the most writers representing. Other reps include The Cartel, Abrams, APA, Brillstein, Paradigm, UTA, Madhouse, Heller Highwater, Echo Lake & others. Congratulations to everyone!

There were a record number of nominations this year and many scripts that I’m sure are fantastic that did not place. Keep trying. You can always tweet your loglines with #BitchPitches so we can all see what Bechdel Test passing material you’re writing.

Appreciate everyone involved. Happy awards season and happy writing to you all.

We love bitches of all genders, races, sizes, abilities

BadBitch

Here we are: Monday, January 8, 2018 with a list of the entertainment industry’s best liked Bechdel Test passing screenplays. This list comes out in January not just to recap last year’s great reads, but to highlight what stories we collectively want to get made in the coming year.

Love the news of THE NEW BECHDEL TESTS. Proud to say some of the screenplays on #TheBitchList2018 appear to pass these also. The original Bechdel Test is an extremely low bar, but surprisingly most films that get made still do not pass it. It is merely somewhere to start.

Every year, we’re still getting the same sad old stats about there being barely any #WOC directed or starring films. #TimesUp for this, really, truly. Who’s out there making this change happen? @Inclusionists have shown us time and time again that the data says #WOC lead films make box office cash, big time. Girls Trip, anyone?

 

 

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 10.37.21 AM

 

There are some awesome announcements- FYI: This time, esteemed #TheBitchList2017 winner Britta Lundin (now a super duper cool big shot writer on Riverdale) is helping facilitate more industry reads of this year’s scripts- if you’re one of the writers on this list and want to be included- email biatchpack@gmail.com and we’ll forward your script to Britta to compile. If you’re a rep or producer and want to read some of them, also feel free to send a message to this email and we’ll connect things up.

Very proud of The Bitch List alumni and glad to keep in touch with ’em. Many are actively participating in #WRAC18, so if you want, hop on over and join us and The Film Brigade headed by the generous Gary Graham and Michael Hennessy.

It’s required that voters send in their nominations via their official work emails and/or include an IMDB.com link of the nominator’s own work in order to verify identities.  Nominations are accepted from those working at studios, networks, agencies, management companies, and production companies anywhere in the world. Aside from this, alumni of the list are also eligible to vote.

 

As always, many thanks to friends and supporters who have lent a hand, given great coverage to The Bitch List: Scriptd.com, Cinema in Noir, The Trackingboard, Indiewire, Wellywood Woman, Bluestocking Film Fest, Etheria Film Fest, Screamfest, The Bloodlist, The Director List, The Blacklist, April and Margaret of Legendary Women and others…

This has been a tumultuous year when it’s come to toppling the patriarchy. The old guard is changing before our very eyes because of brave people who have come out with their stories of sexual harassment. The industry is changing in big ways and together we will have a #BetterHollywood (hashtag by the wonderful Eleanor Morrison).

 

WITHOUT FURTHER ADO-

The first story listed below won by a landslide of the votes. The rest are in no particular order- to cap out at 15 this year

Repping this time are: UTA, Gersh, Lee Stobby Entertainment, The Cartel, Circle of Confusion, APA, Artillery & others

Very proud that writers originally on previous editions of The Bitch List have gone on to be on The Black List and to get their films made. Last year’s success story is David Kukoff’s An Uncivil War, to be directed by Dee Rees!

None of these stories are repped or endorsed by The Bitch Pack, nor are they read by anyone here. Just here counting votes. Congrats to everyone who made it onto the list- with votes from professionals who believe in your writing:

The Bitch List 2017

Hopefully you’ve all recovered from The Golden Globes.

Monday, January 9, 2017

#THEBITCHLIST2017  Mni Wiconi – Water is Life and so is inclusive storytelling

screen-shot-2016-12-04-at-6-23-25-am

Tara Houska mentions narratives and how Indigenous Peoples are not seen on TV

in this New York Times video interview

screen-shot-2016-12-04-at-8-06-13-am

Things that were apparent with this year’s list:

None of the big agencies except Gersh represented this year. It’s an interesting trend as ones like ICM are repping people like Tomi Lahren. Simon & Schuster poured money on that Milo guy who trolled Leslie Jones and many others. We must see #ScreenwritersResist (and reps as well), not further promotion of bullies and the oppression of People of Color, LGBTQ and Disabled People via our content.

On this year’s list also– Brillstein repping. Echo Lake doubled up and more– The boutique management companies stepped up and took over. Good to have staff who are closer to audience members and not so removed and out of touch as companies grow.

Two stories take place in the Dakotas, USA.

Stories this year contain themes such as gentrification, colonization and its effects, trans issues, immigration issues and mental health issues.

Nominations this year surpassed all of the previous years’ nominations combined.

No clear cut #1 this time as verification of nominators’ roles within the entertainment industry was more difficult.  Suggestions are to send people the nomination link and let them proceed- rules for active campaigning will be researched. Appreciate the massive enthusiasm to get on this list, but do not appreciate a writer asking people to participate in a “spiel” one mass email accidentally forwarded by a nominator indicated. Seeing this was disappointing, after noticing trend of nominations that were all the marked generically “producer” as industry affiliation. Grateful that moving forward, next year will require more specification in nominators.

Some people emailed in their own list of 20+ screenplays- this is not at all advisable. Nominations that did not follow the simple instructions were nullified– Ones for completed films also. This is a list for the industry’s most liked Bechdel Test passing un-produced screenplays.

Lesson learned: Next year’s nomination process will require double tier of verification via imdb pro or must come from a work email showing industry affiliation, proof that nominator is indeed trained professionally in script reading and coverage.

This year’s nominators have included a celeb Woman of Color actress, development execs from top international production companies.

Thank you especially to past years’ The Bitch List alumni who are writers on major network TV shows or having their films produced, who have come back to nominate the next layer of alumni. Thank you again to A-Squared//F & H-WOC sub-tracking groups who put in their time vetting stories/nominations.

This is run by a person who adds up votes, not your agent, not your manger who will spend time to pass your work to anyone or read your work– Not a PR company either who will do the labor of promo-ing your work around the clock- just here promote the concept that we need more diverse stories.

All stories are available as of this list’s publishing date.

If no rep under listing, it means unrepped as of now.

Because of over-zealousness in personal campaigning, there could be no clear cut winner this year— Stories are instead ordered this way: Women of Color writers first, stories about Women of Color/Trans Women first, then others, then male writers. This may just continue in future years to un-do white privilege bias/attempts at nomination tampering.

If the story/stories you believe in didn’t make it onto this year’s list- try again next year. Had to cap the list- nominations were completely overwhelming this time around.

We have seen historical films starring Women of Color rule the box office.

Thank you writers and now #TheBitchList alumni!














The Bitch List 2016

This is why #RepresentationMatters. It’s 2016 and Asian/Asian-American women are thought of as “hookers at Golden Globes parties” by a “Hollywood script consultant” when someone brings up lack of representation.

TOGETHER, we can overcome degrading comments and actions- because “stereotypes put women in real danger”.

Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 9.32.04 AM

 

Let’s do this. Now, for The Bitch List:

Stories we hope will get optioned/bought/made in the coming year and the future- the most liked so far un-produced screenplays read by industry professionals in 2015 that feature two named women/girls/transwomen talking about something other than a man– It’s just as simple as that.

Yup, we know stories that don’t pass the Bechdel Test (Bechdel-Wallace) also help women’s representation, but we just believe having more women’s dialogue about their varied interests shows them as even more human.

Some have told me I shouldn’t call this “The Bitch List”, but I wanted to stay in keeping with the alliteration of people we know at The Blood List, The Black List, and keep rhyming with The Hit List! Lycisca List has a nice ring to it. We can all say it 5x fast for fun. Lycisca is “she-wolf” in Italian. I learned this on The History Channel. It’s neat and now we’ve all learned something, but I think we’ll stick to THE BITCH LIST because “bitches get stuff done”.

Very fortunate to have “A-squared” Tracking Board to help facilitate votes this year. Shhh- because A2 exists in secret.

The Bitch List and The Bitch Pack were started by Thuc Doan Nguyen. Thuc is a practicing writer. Thuc enjoys being kicked in the butt by Lexi Alexander to write more Women of Color, which has resulted in a comedy pilot called YELLOW FEVER aka BANANAS.

Thuc also keeps busy writing for QueenMobs, an off-shoot of Berfrois UK. She’s written a web series called DOWNTOWN for 77 Films (LA), who produced I DREAM TOO MUCH with Richard Linklater. She’s working on a short with Bodhi Films (LA & Paris) called TINDER-ITIS. Thuc is grateful to be part of her women’s film mafias in LA and in Europe, and for outstanding allies of all genders.

This list is dedicated to the memory of Richard Alexander Friedman.
