The nominations for this year’s Writers Guild of America Awards were unveiled yesterday – and Black Panther was – of course – included! Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole got nominated for Adapted Screenplay for their Black Panther script. Other nominees in the category are the writers behind
If Beale Street Could Talk, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, A Star is Born and BlacKkKlansman. The winners of the WGA Awards will be announced on February 17. This is another nomination that can point to an Academy Award nomination, so keep your fingers crossed!
In related news, Black Panther‘s Ryan Coogler did NOT receive a nomination at today’s Directors Guild of America Awards announcement. Still, we’re anticipating that well-deserved Oscar Best Picture nomination!
