    The writers will be the first to dismiss West Side Story.

    The screenplay is usually considered the weakest aspect of musicals, but they still get nominated when the film is loved. This screenplay is better than the original and the authentic usage of Spanish is going pull brownie points.

    Being the Ricardos is being campaigned in Adapted Screenplay. Original Screenplay is disturbingly barren.

    But the FYC Amazon page has it “original screenplay”……

    Red Rocket just placed in the NBR TOP 10

    Past lone nominees in Original Screenplay that have cracked the TOP 10:
    Knives Out
    First Reformed
    Straight Outta Compton
    20th Century Women (TOP 10 Independent)
    Nightcrawler
    Ex Machina (TOP 10 Independent)
    Moonrise Kingdom (TOP 10 Independent)

    Keep an eye on Red Rocket, although some of those movies made PGA and AFI as well. If it appears at WGA, it could be a possibility.

    Don’t Look Up has far more thematic and emotional content than Licorice Pizza. The random plotting of Licorice Pizza has a distinct stoner vibe that hipsters and outcasts tend to like, but the Academy not as much.

    The best recent Oscar comparison is probably that Don’t Look Up is Birdman, while Licorice Pizza is Grand Budapest Hotel. Licorice Pizza is weaker than Grand Budapest though. It’s more of a Moonrise Kingdom.

    Yeah we need to be careful about anointing desired winners too soon. I’d absolutely love PTA to finally win an Oscar but I don’t know if the industry as a whole is as eager to address his overdue status as online fans would like. And Don’t Look Up‘s topical satire does seem more the Academy’s thing, at least on the surface.

    Not that it’s getting nominated but why is Shiva Baby in original screenplay in the predictions centre? It’s based on a short film.

    Calling him a lock is I guess a stretch but I definitely do think there’s an eagerness to award PTA that wasn’t there when say Phantom Thread was released. Not only is Licorice Pizza being seen as his most personal film to date but it feels like PTA’s filmography has taken on a bit of a cult status in the industry. Over the past few Oscar seasons several performers and directors in contention have often cited Punch Drunk-Love as one their favourite films (most notably both Taika Waititi and Bong Joon-Ho) and I think in recent years the academy have shown that they’ve been gravitating towards auteurs more than they do films with political leanings.

    The precedence I’m looking at here is in Lonergan’s screenplay win over Chazelle. Just like PTA, Lonergan was considered overdue and his film and screenplay had strong enough critical support for him to cross the finish line over one of the most nominated films in the history of the academy.

    Something I wonder is if the spoiler for Anderson is actually in Mike Mills and not Kenneth Branagh. I am and have been adamant about the fact that Anderson will probably win since the reviews for Licorice Pizza dropped but C’mon C’mon does have a lot of passion so if it ends up being a bigger contender than it is now in the end (i.e. Phoenix nom, Picture nom), I wouldn’t be surprised if Mills ends up at least in the runner up position.

    I really hope so. Saw C’mon C’mon last night and that might be my favorite screenplay of the year. If Mills doesn’t end up being a (very deserving) spoiler, I pray he at least makes the final five, because wow, what a script!
