BAFTA Watch - WGA Announces - Peele Gets First, Sorkin Lands Fifth

Get Out is still going strong with Jordan Peele landing his first Writers’ Guild nod; Aaron Sorkin meanwhile is an old hand by now landing his fifth. Lady Bird and The Shape Of Water are still prominent in the guild noms, whilst it’s good to see The Disaster Artist getting some much deserved love. And to see Logan make a showing as well.

Dunkirk and The Post meanwhile, are both notable by their absence.

The WGA hand out their awards in a bi-coastal party from NY and LA on Feb 11.
