People were so relieved about Wonder Woman's lighter tone and it was such a huge hit that yes, this would certainly be an unsurprising nominee, despite the movie falling apart in the third act.

WGA Exclusions

Postby The Original BJ » Tue Dec 05, 2017 2:11 pm

Obviously I'm stretching the definition of viable contenders to include almost ANYTHING that could even be on the fringes of the conversation, but here is -- based on eye-balling the ballot -- what seems to be missing:

ORIGINAL
Beach Rats
Breathe
Colossal
Columbus
Darkest Hour
God's Own Country
Good Time
Goodbye Christopher Robin
It Comes At Night
The Killing of a Sacred Deer
The Lovers
Novitiate
Personal Shopper
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

ADAPTED
Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool
It
Lady Macbeth
My Cousin Rachel
Spider-Man: Homecoming
Victoria & Abdul

And, as usual, all of the animated and foreign language titles.
