UPDATE: The total number of screenplays available is up to 19, find the updated list right here.

Just like that the list of 2014 Oscar screenplays available for download balloons to a total of thirteen including a massive batch from Sony Pictures Classics such as Before Midnight by Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy and Foreign Language hopefuls The Past by Asghar Farhadi and Wadjda by Haifaa Al-Mansour.

Universal has also added Peter Morgan's script for Rush and Disney has made available the screenplays for Monsters University and the current front-runner for Best Animated Feature, Frozen, written by Jennifer Lee with a story by Lee, Chris Buck and Shane Morris. It's curious it's considered Original, however, considering it was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale The Snow Queen, but I really guess being "inspired by" something instead of "based on" is quite important these days.

I've included all the download links directly below, just right click on any of them and select to save them to your hard drive. I'll continue to post updates as more come available throughout the season and you can stay up to date on my latest Oscar Screenplay posts by bookmarking this page.

    This is neat! All is Lost was Roadside Attractions too, I think? Maybe Roadside will release that brief screenplay of J.C. Chandor's.

    Started reading the Before Midnight screenplay the other day; it reads just as well as it plays on screen.

    Frozen is original in the same sense The Butler and Inside Llewyn Davis are original-they started as being based on something, but are so far away from their original source, they can be considered original. The Screenplay system is weird that way

    Wait, isn't The Armstrong Lie a documentary. So why does it have a script?

      The top of each page says "FULL FILM TRANSCRIPTION". The "script" is a transcript of the film.
