‘Borat After Moviefilm’ wins WGA Award for Adapted Screenplay

Defying the odds, “Borat After Moviefilm” has just won the prize for best adapted screenplay at the WGA Awards. Sacha Baron CohenThe popular sequel beat the following four nominees for Sunday’s Writers Guild of America Awards: “One Night in Miami,” “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” “News of the World” and “The White Tiger.” This lineup only matches three for five with the Oscars, where “Ma Rainey” and “News of the World” were replaced with “Nomadland” and “The Father”, which were not eligible for the guild. In other words, “Borat” will face even tougher competition at the Oscars, with “Nomadland” being the favorite to win there.

And “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” remained stable in second place even though Ruben Santiago-Hudsonthe adaptation of the August wilson the game was snubbed at the Oscars in the storyline category.

To compete in the WGA, one must qualify for consideration under the strict guidelines of the guild or those of its international partners. Remember that last year the Gold Derby predictions were wrong in this guild category, as our favorite “Little Women” lost to “Jojo Rabbit”. A few weeks later, “Jojo Rabbit” matched his guild victory with an Oscar triumph.
