    Adapted: I think the Argo streak stops here, too – Lincoln
    Original: Cabin in the Woods should have won, but think Moonrise Kingdom or Looper should get it.

    I’m thinking Argo and Moonrise Kingdom (I would probably say ZDT, but I’m betting they will not feel comfortable enough giving it the award)

    I have a hunch Argo is sweeping everything it’s nominated for- I predicted this when I saw it winning the SAG ensemble; still Kusner’s script is very strong. I just don’t know.

    WGA FINAL PREDICTIONS

    Adapted Screenplay: Chris Terrio, Argo
    Original Screenplay: Mark Boal, Zero Dark Thirty

    I hope Kushner wins!!!

    Kushner’s screenplay for Lincoln is truly brilliant (and I’m not even that huge of a fan of the movie) and he is one of our greatest living screenwriters. He deserves the win here and at the Oscars but it looks like he’ll be sitting this out for the Argo juggernaut.

    Kushner deserves it, but I think that Argo unfortunately will prevail.  I liked it, but not as much by a long shot.

    In Original Screenplay,  I hope Moonrise Kingdom wins.

    ADAPTED SCREENPLAY
    1. Argo
    2. Silver Linings Playbook
    3. Lincoln
    4. Beasts of the Southern Wild
    5. Life of Pi

    ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
    1. Zero Dark Thirty
    2. Moonrise Kingdom
    3. Flight
    4. Looper
    5. The Master

    And I am pretty sure Nathan Fillion has never won an Emmy. If I remember correctly, he’s only ever been nominated for a Daytime Emmy.

    Kushner is above every other competitor here
    and he might win as either a consolation prize
    for not winning the oscar or maybe the tide turns
    and LINCOLN wins adapted screenplay at the oscars..
    if that happens…might set up a Lincoln best picture
    win after all…
    I think with ARGO..it must have the screenplay and editing
    to be tthe best film of the year..otherwise the oscars, as usual,
    will make no sense…Imagine Lincoln winning 3 big oscars
    (screenplay director and actor) and Argo prevailing…
    Chicago did the same thing to  THE PIANIST  in 2002 race
    but at least Chicago had won 6 oscars including an acting oscar.

    My pick  KUSHNER

    I don’t get all the praise for Kushner and Lincoln.
    First rule of screenwriting and filmamking, SHOW don’t TELL. The whole film is an uneven poorly paced trite where every character delivers the same monotonous monologue.

    What Sorkin did in Social Network is amazing. He has these conversations but he uses it to SHOW.
