A couple weeks ago, we flagged the list compiled by Dear Cinema of more than 20 screenplays vying for Oscars this year that had been made officially available online. Among the scripts were those for Moonrise Kingdom and Lincoln.

Not among them? Django Unchained, which does not hit theaters until Christmas. Happily, it looks like the Weinstein Company has decided their Oscar campaign for the script could not wait any longer: the official screenplay for Django Unchained is now available. If you do not mind spoilers, happy reading!
