    Place your reactions to the WGA Awards 2020 for Saturday in this thread. Final predictions for film or television?

    BTW, Pete Hammond says the WGA film awards will be given out early in NY tomorrow so that those people can get on their planes for London.

    If Parasite doesn’t win Original Screenplay here I’d be shocked and honestly quite disappointed. On the other hand, I do think there’s still upset potential in Adapted Screenplay, though Little Women is looking pretty strong here. If there’s a surprise though it will be Jojo Rabbit.

    Academy-Award winners:

    Parasite: Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay

    Joker: Best Actor - Joaquin Phoenix

    Jojo Rabbit: Best Adapted Screenplay

    I think Parasite will take it, but I could see Marriage Story surprising. I think Adapted is a close race between the two you mentioned.

    I have Marriage Story winning OG screenplay here & on the BAFTA (won London’s critics choice and those usually ending up winning one of the screenplay awards with the British Academy)

    I sure hope so! Marriage Story deserves an Oscar win and screenplay would be the best way to recognise it.

    I’m terrified at the prospects of a Knives Out upset.

    That’s exactly what I’m counting on to snuff out the Parasite insurgency once and for all.

    Nice stuff: no waiting until 3AM ET for results! 🙂

    Knives Out just seems like that cool writerly movie the Writers’ Guild would drool over. And Parasite would be the FIRST foreign film to win the Writers’ Guild award. I’d been predicting Knives Out for a long time for these reasons. And if it somehow does win, I’m gonna punch myself.

    I liked Knives Out, but felt like the last third of the movie was a big disappointment. It was going in such a unique direction and then it just looped back around to a traditional murder mystery. Rian tried so hard to subvert my expectations that my expectations were met.

    Parasite is probably the best written film I’ve ever seen. It conveys it’s message so naturally and never feels preachy. Plus there’s so much going on both above (with huge plot twists, flashy sequences, and the shocking violence at the end) and below (subtle visual metaphors, dramatic irony, and complex character motivations). If it loses this award I’ll be real sad, because then it’s Oscar chances are dead, but at least let it lose to a better film like Marriage Story, which had another fantastic screenplay. Not the overrated, wasted potential that was Knives Out.

    Academy-Award winners:

    Parasite: Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay

    Joker: Best Actor - Joaquin Phoenix

    Jojo Rabbit: Best Adapted Screenplay

    Suffice to say if Parasite doesn’t win here it is DOA at the Oscars.
