Last week, we posted the 2021 Golden Globes-nominated screenplays. With this virtual awards season in full swing, it is interesting seeing the overlaps (and snubs/surprises!) in some of the nominations. Today, the amazing Stage 32-er Alan C. Baird has collected the 2021 Writers Guild Award-nominated screenplays for both best original screenplay, and best adapted screenplay.
Can you spot the differences in the nominations between the Golden Globes and the Writers Guild? Which WGA nominated script is your favorite? Who do you predict will win? Tell us in the comments below!
The 73rd annual dual-coast Writers Guild Awards will be held Sunday, March 21, in separate ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York.
These two sites explain (in excruciating detail) why certain scripts were ineligible for WGA recognition:
