Last month, the Writers Guild of America revealed their picks for the best in television. Just one day before the Oscar nomination ballots are sent to Academy voters, the WGA has unveiled its feature film and documentary nominations.
Definitely the biggest surprise for me is that Logan picked up a Best Adapted Screenplay nom. The Hugh Jackman film will compete against Oscar contenders Call Me By Your Name, The Disaster Artist, Molly’s Game and Mudbound.
Even though Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri failed to secure a nod due to not meeting WGA eligibility standards, it’s still deemed a solid bet to snag an Oscar original screenplay nomination. Other films that weren’t WGA Awards eligible include Anthony McCarten’s Winston Churchill biopic Darkest Hour, Disney’s Coco and The Killing of a Sacred Deer.
The 2018 WGA Awards will be handed out February 11 in dual ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York. LGBTQ rights activist Dustin Lance Black will receive its 2018 Valentine Davies Award in recognition for his civil and human rights efforts.
Check out all the nominations below.
