It’s been a while since I did one of these lists, not since the Emmy 2019 Nominated Screenplays. 2020 wasn’t exactly resplendent with movies and TV shows, and a lot of studios didn’t release scripts. But it’s a new season of awards, a new selection of nominees, and a new batch of scripts

Best original screenplay

Presentational grey line

Best adapted screenplay

Presentational grey line

Golden Globe Best Screenplay

Sure, these aren’t the Academy Awards, but since all bar one nominees is already listed above, I thought I’d combine it!

  • Mank – Jack Fincher
  • Promising Young Woman – Emerald Fennell
  • The Trial of the Chicago 7 – Aaron Sorkin
  • The Father – Christopher Hampton, Florian Zeller
  • Nomadland – Chloé Zhao
