    Will Zorkin be the first screenwriter to win both Adapted and Original categories in case he wins?

    Far from it. Billy Wilder, Alan Jay Lerner, Ring Lardner Jr., Paddy Chayefsky, Horton Foote and the Coens have all won both awards.

    The Father has just won best european film at the GOYAs.

     

    Not sure if that was/was not expected though.

    FYC EMMYS: THE CROWN IN ALL CATEGORIES (ESP. OLIVIA COLMAN - D. ACTRESS & HBC - D. SUPP. ACTRESS) & IT’S A SIN IN ALL CATEGORIES (ESP. LYDIA WEST - LIM. ACTRESS & KEELEY HAWES - LIM. SUPP. ACTRESS) & I MAY DESTROY YOU IN ALL CATEGORIES

    I remember Get Out being released during the famous pandemic of 2017.

    I remember when you predicted PYW to win 3 globes and it won ZERO

    Trial 7 could still win here. PYW is a very predictable CCA choice.

    👑Cicely Tyson (1924-2021)
    👑Mary Wilson (1944-2021)

    As could Promising Young Woman. Trial of the Chicago 7 is a predictable Golden Globes choice.

    Point being I think like with Actress and S. Actress we won’t know who is winning (and maybe even then won’t know till the Oscars) until SAG/WGA and BAFTA. If Fennell takes BAFTA and Sorkin takes WGA it will be tight.

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    Trial 7 is a very predictable Oscar choice as well. A safe, socially relevant, historical drama with a ton of characters written by a previously won industry vet with clout. Sounds like a potential winner to me.

    Let’s pray for Sorkin go home with a trophy made of air.

    Agreed.

    Promising Young Woman is a very predictable Oscar choice as well. A controversial, socially relevant drama with dark humour written by a rising star with the industry. Just like Get Out, Jojo Rabbit and Parasite. Without a doubt a potential winner too.

    Sorkin’s history with the Academy is a bit odd insofar as he’s missed a number of nominations in the past that in theory he should have had, going all the way back to A Few Good Men, but he of course eventually won and then got two subsequent nominations. He also won the Globe for another film that he missed a nomination at the Oscars for. He’s definitely a serious contender for the win this time around.
