    Anybody else thinking that this year’s high-profile stage-to-film adaptations, The Son and The Whale, might not be nominated in screenplay?

    At the very least I think they won’t be especially competitive. I read The Son (play) and didn’t think it was especially great. It’s a solid acting showcase but found it to be a bit frustrating and underwritten. It will need to be adapted very well. And The Whale feels like an absolute wildcard in addition to being campaigned by a hit-or-miss distributer. I could see both missing.

    Really curious as to if/when there will be an official announcement regarding The Banshees of Inisherin’s category placement as an adapted screenplay.

    Several reports (The Wrap, Variety, thefilmexperience, Paste Magazine, Irish Examiner, etc.) have already indicated that it’s an adaptation of an unproduced stage-play that McDonaugh wrote some 25 years ago.

    I’d really like to update my predictions on GoldDerby accordingly.

    The Fabelmans, TAR, Bardo, Babylon, Empire of Light, Triangle of Sadness, Decision to Leave, etc.

    Original Screenplay is starting to fill up with enough contenders that I’m beginning to worry if Everything Everywhere All at Once is as safe as we think it is.

    *gulp*

    I read the script too and it was a bit underwhelming. Not particuarly interesting and had lacked alot of context that would give it depth. It’s an acting showcase though for sure. The Whale feels like a longshot for a nomination imo, giving it’s likely state in the race. I doubt it gets in anywhere beyond maybe Critics Choice.

    Hunter is US based so I assume The Whale should eligible.

    I don’t think Living, Till and Women Talking are eligible WGA though.

    As far as I know, Samuel D. Hunter, the screenwriter of The Whale, who is American and lives in NYC, is NOT a WGA member and did not write The Whale’s screenplay under a WGA collective bargaining agreement so it is likely that he is ineligible to receive a WGA screenwriting award for The Whale.

    BTW, I’m unsure if you were suggesting it in your post, but please be advised that a European screenwriter can win a WGA Award— for example, Emerald Fennell won one for Promising Young Woman.

    FYI. Rules for Theatrical (Original and Adapted) Screenplay Submissions:

    “Theatrical screenplays produced under the jurisdiction of the WGA or of an affiliate Guild are not automatically deemed submitted for the award. A completed entry form must be submitted for WGA awards consideration.

    To be eligible, entries must have been exhibited theatrically in LA for at least one week during the eligibility period of March 1, 2021 – December 31, 2021 and must have been written under the WGA MBA or under a bona fide collective bargaining agreement of the Writers Guild of Canada, Writers’ Guild of Great Britain, Writers’ Guild of Ireland, Writers’ Guild of South Africa, New Zealand Writers Guild, Film Writers’ Association (India), La Guilde Francaise des Scénaristes (France), Scriptwriters Guild of Israel, the Société des Auteurs de Radio, Télévision et Cinéma (Québec) or Verband Deutscher Drehbuchautoren (VDD/Germany) (collectively, “affiliate guilds”). Submissions for films written under the jurisdiction of an affiliate guild must include a letter from the affiliate guild verifying awards eligibility. Please note that an affiliate guild may impose additional requirements for a writer to be considered covered by its collective bargaining agreement.”
