    One Night in Miami won Adapted Screnplay in Phoenix Film Critics Society. It’s the first win for the movie in this category.

    There’s a reason this group voted for ONIM here. Considering it’s the frontrunner for WGA, it could gain enough momentum to upset at the Oscars, especially if Nomadland wins Best Picture.

    Kemp Powers is coming.

    I do sort of feel like ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI could rally here…unless they really want to go BIRDMAN/PARASITE with Zhao.

    As for Original, I am still hoping that Emerald Fennell will surge ahead and that Sorkin’s win will be more like Tarantino’s win at the Globes last year.

    ADAPTED:
    Borat Subsequent Moviefilm
    The Father
    Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
    Nomadland
    One Night in Miami

    ORIGINAL:
    Judas & The Black Messiah
    Minari
    Promising Young Woman
    Sound of Metal
    Trial of the Chicago 7

    Trends can obviously be broken but I had a look at the last Globe winners in Screenplay and:

    2019 – Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
    2018 – Green Book
    2017 – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri
    2016 – La La Land
    2015 – Steve Jobs

    Only one of those won and they were the BP winner.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    Steve Jobs sticks out like a sore thumb lol. Which is a shame because it’s probably the best of all of those.

    I wonder if the Academy may be more inclined to award Fennell and Zhao in the Screenplay categories so they can make headlines about how director and both the screenplay categories were won by women.

    This would be the first time since I watch the Oscars that the two best screenplays of the year win in their respective categories. Let’s hope that happens!

    I would love to see that.

    But boy, if that and Director happens I am not looking forward to the stupid takes over how this year was a ‘weak year’ which was the only reason why female filmmakers dominated the awards, instead of them being completely worthy and against plenty of strong competition.

    Screenplay and BP go hand in hand. They dont just give away screenplay awards to your fave just because.

    and by BP i mean winning best picture. Some people are about to get some Birdman realness.
