    In the list of “Top 10 to Watch” why don’t I see screenwriter Patty Jones listed? This girl won a Nicholl’s Fellowship award in Screenwriting. In order to win this, you need to be in the top 5 out of 7,251 feature length screenplays. She is only the 4th or 5th Canadian in the 25 year history of the fellowship to win this award.
