The Writer’s Guild of America released their list of nominations, following yesterday’s announcement from the PGA.
Straight Outta Compton and Sicario continued their impressive guild performances, despite a lack of precursor support, by receiving nominations. Also surprising (a good kind) was the inclusion of Carol after being shut out by the PGA. Hopefully it was just an oversight on their part, and will be embraced by the Academy (as it deserves to).
A number of scripts were deemed ineligible to compete here, including Ex-Machina, The Hateful Eight, 99 Homes, Inside Out, Son of Saul, Room, Brooklyn, Suffragette, 45 Years and Me, Earl, And The Dying Girl. Though their ineligibility here does not mean they are barred from consideration from the Academy.
See the full list of nominees below.
The winners will be announced on February 13th.
