Thanks, Delvino, for voting for Kushner's work. I really thought his work was so substantial and important to Spielberg's new vision.

As a writer yourself, you probably realize that the screenplays to musicals are historically underrated and overlooked.

In fact, the 1961 movie of ''West Side Story'' won 10 of its 11 Oscars, and the only one it lost was Adapted Screenplay.

And the last screenplay to a movie musical to win an Academy Award is ''Gigi'' (1958).

Speaking of the WGA, they used to give a prize for Best Written Musical, from 1949-1969. Another relic of another time.
