The Hollywood Screenwriters Union released on Tuesday (16) the list of nominees for the categories of films at the WGA Awards 2021. This is usually one of the awards that serve as a thermometer for the Oscars, as a considerable part of the voters participate in the two votes.
In 2020, for example, Parasita and Jojo Rabbit were elected in both awards as Best Original Screenplay and Best Adapted Screenplay, respectively. However, for the WGA, some criteria make ineligible films whose scripts have been written by non-union members.
This is the case of Mank, for example, who should appear at the Oscar 2021, but was left out of the WGA. Besides this, other features that were left out of the competition, should appear strongly for the Oscars, such as Detachment Blood, Minari and Nomadland.
The WGA award takes place on March 21. Below you can see all the nominees.
