The Writers Guild has revealed its nominations in the categories of original, adapted and documentary screenplay, with Oscar-nominated scripts for Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Fabelmans, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, Tár, Top Gun: Maverick and Women Talking all earning nods.
Along with the Daniels’ Everything Everywhere, Steven Spielberg and Tony Kushner’s The Fabelmans and Todd Field’s Tár, the WGA also recognized Seth Reiss and Will Tracy’s dark fine-dining satire The Menu and Jordan Peele’s extraterrestrial thriller Nope in the original screenplay category, proving that this year the guild was less skittish about the horror genre than the Academy.
In the adapted screenplay field, Glass Onion, Top Gun: Maverick and Women Talking will face off against Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and She Said. The documentary screenplay category features five films not recognized by the Academy: 2nd Chance, Downfall: The Case Against Boeing, Last Flight Home, Moonage Daydream and ¡Viva Maestro!.
The 75th Annual Writers Guild Awards will be held on Sunday, March 5, 2023 at concurrent ceremonies at New York’s Edison Ballroom and Los Angeles’ Fairmont Century Plaza.
