Consider the name ironic. This isn't a list of scripts written by those who are unwelcome in the industry. Rather, "The Black List" is a compilation of "most liked" unproduced screenplays from a certain year. Screenwriters, young and old, repped or voiceless, submit their works for consideration.

Annually, since 2005, film industry executives read hundreds of screenplays and choose which ones are their favorite. Referred to as a "mention" (a vote), favored scripts with the most mentions are featured on, in this regard, the "Black List: 2022."

Some screenplays get optioned by studios and maybe... just maybe... get made. Past picks include: "Bird Box," and "The Founder."
