Home Movies Spotlight, Carol Lead Writers Guild Nominees Among Those Eligible, Sicario Gets Hateful...

Not all the Oscar buzzed films are eligible for Writers  Guild nominations. Quentin Tarantino isn’t in the WGA so his wonderful screenplay for “The Hateful Eight” isn’t on today’s list. “Sicario” got that spot. “Room” and “Brooklyn” also weren’t eligible. So these lists don’t reflect what the Academy can and will do  Like the PGA yesterday, these are specialized awards. They’re also a lot more subjective because they’re from a small pool. Still, here are the Writers Guild Awards nominees for 2016.
