2012 Winner Michael Hamblin
Our 2012 winner is Michael Hamblin for his screenplay The Emperor of Wyoming.
The fractured and dysfunctional family of an Idaho mortician and struggling author falls apart – and comes together – as he and his estranged son grapple with the moral and ethical implications of a bizarre mission from God, delivered by way of a talking corpse. Dark yet whimsical, tragic while infused with awkward hilarity, The Emperor of Wyoming is a heartwarming, fascinating meditation on familial love, bus theft, murder, and the importance of butterflies.
Michael received a check for $10,000 for winning BlueCat. His script was selected from 3,000 submissions.
