It seems like every week there's a new Guild Award ceremony and I'm having a hard time keeping up. This week's was the Writers Guild Awards, and unless there's another surprise ceremony in the next four days it's the final one before the Academy Awards premiere on Sunday.

Being that we only care about True Cinema™ 'round these parts, only the Adapted/Original screenplay awards are below. Again, Guild Awards are supposedly the best precursors for their Oscar equivalents, and if that holds true for the screenplays I'll be happy, even if I believe Greta Gerwig deserves Adapted.
