Writers Guild Nominations Announced!


Moments ago, the Writers Guild of America announced their 2020 nominees. The big Guild precursors are going to come hot and heavy over the next 24 hours, but today brought the WGA. As you’ll see, they gave boosts to major contenders for Best Picture, kept a few films alive, and snubbed a handful of movies. Some things never change, right?

Below you’ll see who the Writers Guild selected, but keep in mind that titles like Clemency, Downton Abbey, The Farewell, Judy, The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Midsommar, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Pain and Glory, The Peanut Butter Falcon, and Waves were not eligible, while The Two Popes was ruled Original for this Guild, though for the Academy Awards it’ll be Adapted. Anyway, take a look at the nominations…
