WGA nominations don't tell the whole story

This week is huge for precursor nominations (Visual Effects Society, DGA, PGA, and BAFTA all hit tomorrow) but today was the Writers Guild of America's turn.

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY

A strongish lineup even if we wouldn't single out1917's strength as its writing.Curiously, both该两位教皇and Hustlers were eligible for Original with the WGA (and missed) but they're both competing in Adapted for Oscar voters where they actually belong since they're based on a play and a magazine article respectively.Did the confusion cost them votes?This WGA lineup is bad news for critical darlings like亲爱的男孩,足本宝石,andDolemite is My Name, any of which might have made headway in a weaker year for Originals.But the three strongest alternate threats for an Oscar nomination weren't eligible...

Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood)and Pedro Almodóvar (Pain and Glory)aren't WGA members.They've both won writing Oscars without ever being WGA nominees due to the exclusionary rules.The third possibility is Lulu Wang's personal and wonderfulThe Farewellwhich was also ineligibl.

Of the five screenplays that were nominated for the WGA surelyBooksmart(due to it being a pure comedy) and1917(due to it being largely a visual set-piece movie) are surely the most vulnerable against various potential spoilers, Pedro, Quentin, and Lulu being the most likely to show.

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY

  • A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood- Michah Fitzerman-Blu & Noah Harpster basd on "Can You Say... Hero?" by Tom Junod
  • 爱尔兰人- Steven Zaillian based on "I HeardYou Paint Houses" by Charles Brandt
  • Jojo Rabbit -Taika Waititi basd on "Caging Skies" by Christine Leunens
  • Joker- Todd Phillips & Scott Silver based on DC Comic books
  • Little Women- Greta Gerwig based on "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott

JIn truth this is one of the weakest years forAdapted Screenplaywe've seen in our years of Oscar watching.There just weren't many adaptations and even fewer undeniable ones.

TRIVIA NOTE: If Taika Waititi is Oscar nominated for hisJojo Rabbitscreenplay it will actually be his second Oscar nomination.Though few people remember it due to the low profile of the category he also competed for Best Live Action Short for the beautiful miniature gemTwo Cars One Night(2004).

DOCUMENTARY SCREENPLAY

A double nomination for Alex Gibney!Interestingly NONE of these films are in the finals forAPP亚博娱乐

I thought THE FAREWELL was ineligible too?

January 6, 2020 | Unregistered CommenterRyan T.

I still think that The Farewell will make it in over The Two Popes, but neither is performing as well as they should be.

January 6, 2020 | Unregistered CommenterAbe

Hustlers is not very good;right at that middle mark, but beyond Lopez (who I still see as a lead until I watch again), I think all good.

Good that The Two Popes is going adapted, as you are correct regarding the depth of the category.Joker's direction is an issue for me, but I don't know that its screenplay is far beyond, and I think that The Two Popes will take it, since it's s good movie.

I think Booksmart will drop because I now feel 1917 is one of the frontrunners, and it's neither a musical nor James Cameron...tho I agree it's more susceptible than the other three, which is a very likely Knives Out and two locks.

The Farewell or Pain And Glory..I think Uncut Gems more likely to surprise in Best Director than a crowded screenplay category.

January 6, 2020 | Unregistered CommenterMe

Edit to my comment above - I think The Farewell will make the cut for original, and The Two Popes will just miss in adapted.It's confusing when each group puts them in different categories.

January 6, 2020 | Unregistered CommenterAbe

Meghan McCain said Uncut Gems was the best movie of 2019.Now I have ZERO interest in watching Uncut Gems.

January 6, 2020 | Unregistered CommenterJohn

I'm a WGA member/voter, and The Farewell was indeed ineligible here.

Also, Hustlers was considered an original screenplay for our purposes, NOT an adaptation.(I have no idea why, though.)

January 6, 2020 | Unregistered Commenteralexander

I just checked, The Farewell was indeed ineligible for the WGA.Oh, and Hustlers was given the Two Popes treatment and was submitted in the Original category...

January 6, 2020 | Unregistered CommenterRichter Scale

Don' t despair Nathaniel, The Farewell's absence can be explained by its ineligibility.

That said, I think substitute Once Upon a Time in Hollywood for Booksmart, and we're looking at the 10 nominees.总有机会克星搁浅船受浪摇摆年代水平urprise, but probably not this year.

January 6, 2020 | Unregistered Commenterken s.

I was listening to Illeana Douglas' podcast and she had a great argument as to why Hustlers is so bad ..I respect her perspective but I'd also be interested to hear Natathiel & Murtada's counter to her argument since they love the film so much.

As for WGA - overall, wonderful nominees.Such a great year!!

The Farewell was ineligible

January 6, 2020 | Unregistered CommenterBilly

thanks for the notes -- i have updated the post.

Jem -- i dont listn to very many podcasts but I love Ileana Douglas so i'm curious now.

January 6, 2020 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

It really can happen that all three inellegible Originla (Hollywood, Glory and Farewell) are nominated for the Oscar...along Marriage Story (ugh) and Parasite.

I rather kick out Hollywood and Marriage Story and have Glory, Farewell, Parasite, Knives Out and one other extra contender (the best original I have seen is Some Time Later, but that is completely impossible, I do not know if even inelligible for Oscar)

Jem, what episode was this?

1月7日, 2020 | Unregistered CommenterMax

I'm happy for BOOKSMART.Between this and the BAFTA nod, they've had a good week.It won't go much further, but I'm glad they got this bit of love.I assume Baumbach takes this without the Tarantino to block him.Kinda wild that the PARASITE writers are WGA members and the others aren't.

As for 1917, ugh.But I'd rather that have gotten in than THE TWO POPES which is an appalling, offensive movie that makes me think less of those involved.Absolute trash.

1月7日, 2020 | Unregistered CommenterGlenn Dunks

Appalling and offensive?May I ask how so?
