'Deadpool,' 'Moonlight,' and More Receive Nominations from the Writers Guild Awards

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell We're officially into award season, and the Writers Guild of America has handed out its nominees for screenwriting awards. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick's Deadpool has miraculously scored a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination, though it isn't the first instance of the guild honouring genre films.

Joining Deadpool in the Adapted Screenplay category is Eric Heisserer's Arrival, while Original Screenplay competitors are Barry Jenkins' Moonlight, Kenneth Lonergan's Manchester by the Sea, and Damien Chazelle's La La Land. These are three films many are eyeing as Best Picture contenders for the year.

Taylor Sheridan's Hell or High Water script, however, is a chance, and it's a nice touch to see Jeff Nichols' script for Loving being recognised.
