Here Are The 2021 WGA Nominations!


Yesterday, while the those of us down in Texas were dealing with the invasion of the Night King, the Writer’s Guild of America announced their nominees for the best of 2020!  When you look at the nominations below, it’s important to remember that there were several Oscar contenders that were ruled ineligible for WGA recognition.  “Ammonite,” “The Father,” “Mank,” “Minari,” “Nomadland,” “Pieces Of A Woman,” “Soul,” “Supernova” and “The Personal History Of David Copperfield” were all not eligible.

So, in other words, when you’re making out your Oscar predictions, perhaps take these nominations with a grain of salt, eh?

Myself, I’m just happy to see the wonderful Palm Springs nominated for Original Screenplay.

Here are the nominees!  Winners will be announced on March 21st!
