Jordan Peele’s Get Out, Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani’s The Big Sick, and Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird were among the original screenplay nominations announced Thursday for the Writers Guild of America Awards.
Logan, the final X-Men movie for Jackman, has been nominated for its screenplay, co-penned by Scott Frank and Mangold. The movie did not make it to the same category in the Golden Globe or Screen Actors Guild nominations.
Other contenders in the adapted screenplay category of The Writers Guild of America Awards include James Ivory’s screenplay for Call Me by Your Name, Scott Neustadter and Michael H Weber’s screenplay for Franco-starrer The Disaster Artist, the Aaron Sorkin-penned Molly’s Game and the Virgil Williams-Dee Rees collaboration Mudbound.
The 2018 Writers Guild of America Awards will take place on February 11 across two separate ceremonies in New York City and Beverly Hills.
