Best Original Screenplay

The Giants have had some hilarious commercials over the years and there were a few that made the cut this season.

Nominees:

Buster Posey and Puppies

Buster and puppies are a match made in heaven for many Giants fans and his promotion for the Buster Hug blanket with puppies named Buster laying on the blanket took cute to another level.

Brandon and Brandon

Crawford and Belt have had success in past seasons together in commercials. After the season, the two Brandons came together on Facebook for a game of Box of Lies. In the second installment, Belt attempted to trick Crawford and it did not go well.

George Kontos Fireworks

Former Giants pitcher George Kontos finally got his own commercial at the start of the 2017 season and it was to promote fireworks night. He was really excited about it.

Meet the Posey’s

Posey has had some great commercials with Toyota in the past, and this year is no exception. As his wife and dog head to the dog park, a man is seen playing fetch with his dog. He is using a plastic toy to help fling his ball further. Meanwhile, Posey steps out of the car and sends his ball a little bit further. The man sees the throw and immediately tosses the toy into the garbage can. It is not only hilarious, but it is the best of the year and the WINNER of the 2017 Giants Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.

Best Adapted Screenplay

The Giants needed strong writers in a down season to help deal with the season that was 2017 and there was no shortage of great writing in the Bay Area when it came to the Giants.

Nominees: 

Andrew Baggarly

Alex Pavlovic

Hank Schulman

Grant Brisbee

These four have separated themselves from the rest and established themselves as the voices of reason in a hectic season.

While the team is in the dump, it takes humor to get you out of it and escape the pain. Grant Brisbee and his hilarious interpretations on the Giants helped fans smile after so many losses.

In such a prestigious group of writers, Grant Brisbee was able to separate himself from the group by giving Giants fans a brand of humor they needed and be selected the WINNER of the 2017 Giants Oscar for Best Adated Screenplay.
