This morning the Writer’s Guild of America announced the nominees for outstanding screenwriting in 2021. The feature films eligible for WGA had some notable absences due to the writers guild’s strict rules for membership, with favored titles like Soul, Mank, and Oscar Best Picture front runner Nomadland all deemed ineligible by the WGA governing body.

Still, today’s nominations will give a welcomed boom for Promising Young Woman and Palm Spring both of whom hope to compete for the Best Screenplay prizes at the Academy Awards. The Television Nominations that were announced earlier this month are also included here with AMC’s Better Call Saul leading nominations with 5 total. Read on for the full list of the Writers Guild of America’s Television and Film nominees.
