Adapted Screenplay winner – Lincoln
Original Screenplay winner – The MasterFebruary 15, 2013 at 9:57 am #91606
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.February 15, 2013 at 9:58 am #91607
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)February 15, 2013 at 10:34 am #91608
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!!!

SLP and Moonrise KingdomFebruary 15, 2013 at 1:01 pm #91610
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.February 15, 2013 at 1:23 pm #91611
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.February 15, 2013 at 1:29 pm #91612

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.February 15, 2013 at 2:58 pm #91613
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 KUSHNERFebruary 17, 2013 at 6:47 pm #91614

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.
