Oscars: 'Call Me by Your Name' Wins Best Adapted Screenplay

Oscars: 'Call Me by Your Name' Wins Best Adapted Screenplay”

James Ivory, 89, is now the oldest Oscar victor. He also thanked his "sensitive and sensible director" Luca Guadagnino as well as the film's "wonderful, emotion-filled actors".

The James Ivory-penned screenplay beat out the scripts for Logan (James Mangold, Michael Green, Scott Frank), Molly's Game (Aaron Sorkin), Mudbound (Dee Rees, Virgil Williams) and The Disaster Artist (Scott Neustadter, Michael H. Weber). Call Me by Your Name, adapted from André Aciman's novel of the same name, is his first screenwriting credit in 15 years. Ivory's screenplay has been widely praised for its empathy in portraying the nuances of first love.

Though it was easily one of the most lauded films of this awards season, its Oscar chances began slowly fizzling out thanks to the domination of films like The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Ivory is a first-time Oscar nominee in the writing category.

Ivory has been nominated for three Oscars before, all in the Best Director category, for The Remains of the Day in 1994, Howard's End in 1993, and A Room With a View in 1987.

At Sunday's ceremony, Call Me by Your Name was up for a total of four Oscars. "I mean, 90 years for anything that you would do is extraordinary, but to be here having won the Oscar at that age just seems... that's like a hiccup in nature, possibly, something like that", he said. "I walked around with it, but it was not mine", he noted.

Ivory said he had accepted a screenplay Oscar before on behalf of longtime collaborator Ruth Jhabvala, but that the experience was not equivalent.

"The whole idea of first love - it's a universal situation, whether it made us unhappy or joyous", he said.
