Today saw the nominations announced for this year's Writers' Guild Awards. As I've previously said, I don't tend to focus on the screenplay Oscars (certainly not to the same degree as the acting and directing ones; I certainly wouldn't attempt to predict what would get nominated), but- as a writer and a film fan- I do have an interest in what's been nominated.
This year's nominations are as follows:
Bridge Of Spies
Straight Outta Compton
The Big Short
Going Clear: Scientology And The Prison Of Belief
Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck
There are several films that were not eligible for consideration due to guild rules, so films like The Hateful Eight, Inside Out, Suffragette, Ex Machina, Mad Max: Fury Road, Room, The Danish Girl and Brooklyn were not able to be considered.
More awards nonsense on Friday (8th February) with the BAFTA Film nominations.
