Writers Guild nominates “Palm Springs” and “Ma Rainey,” “News of the World” and “Judas” for WGA Awards

This is an easily defended set of nominations for best original and adapted screenplays.

Quibble with “Borat Subsequent Movie Film” if you want, the omission of “Mank.”

But “Judas and the Black Messiah,” “News of the World,” “The White Tiger,” “One Night in Miami,” “Promising Young Woman,” “Sound of Metal,” “The Trial of the Chicago Seven,” “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” even “Palm Springs,” hard to find fault with any of those.”

No, “Da Five Bloods” and “Mank” weren’t dazzling scripts. “Nomadland” was and is.
