The path to the Best Picture Oscar almost always winds through the screenplay categories, so Thursday’s feature film nominations from the Writers Guild of America could clarify the main contenders in this awards season.

But the list has some caveats. The organization has narrow eligibility criteria that exclude films not written under a negotiation agreement from the WGA or its sister guilds, which is why you won’t see nominations for “Belfast” and ” The Power of the Dog”, two films that are hotly tipped as Oscar favorites in the screenplay categories. Other ineligible films include ‘The Lost Daughter’, ‘Passing’, ‘Cyrano’ and international contenders like ‘A Hero’, ‘Drive My Car’ and ‘Parallel Mothers’.

That said, in which films did you do it? The Original Screenplay category is filled with previously nominated WGA favorites like Aaron Sorkin (“Being the Ricardos”), Adam McKay (“Don’t Look Up”), Paul Thomas Anderson (“Licorice Pizza”) and Wes Anderson (“The French Dispatch”), with Zach Baylin’s script for “King Richard” rounding out the run.

In the adapted screenplay category, three big-budget films were rewarded: “Dune”, written by Jon Spaihts, Denis Villeneuve and Eric Roth; “West Side Story”, by Tony Kushner; and “Nightmare Alley”, by Guillermo del Toro and Kim Morgan. They will be competing against Sian Heder’s screenplay for her film “CODA” and “Tick, Tick…Boom!” by Steven Levenson.

The winners of the WGA Awards will be announced at a ceremony on March 20. Here is the full list of nominations.
