Don’t look for four of the 10 screenplay Oscar nominees (the original screenplays of “The Banshees of Inisherin” and “Triangle of Sadness” plus the adaptations of “All Quiet on the Western Front” and “Living”) on the list of nominations for the 2023 Writers Guild of America Awards were announced on January 25. They were not eligible to be considered under the guidelines of the guild or those of its international partners.
The favorite from the original script “Everything Everywhere All at Once” is in the running for this guild award, as are two of his Oscar rivals: “The Fabelmans” and “Tar”. The WGA run is completed with the scripts of “The Menu” and “Nope”.
Likewise, our predicted Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar winner — “Women Talking” — is also up for that award. It takes on two Oscar nominees — ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’ and ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ — plus ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ and ‘She Said’.
With so many screenplays ineligible with the guild, it’s no surprise that over the past 13 years, only 85 of the WGA Award nominees have been among the 130 screenplays that have won Oscar nominations. The 2023 Writers Guild of America Awards will be handed out on March 5, two days before final voting for the Oscars begins.
