The Writers Guild echoes the sentiments of much of the awards season thus far, giving nominations to “Knives Out” and Rian Johnson, “Marriage Story” and Noah Baumbach, “Parasite” and Bong Joon Ho and Han Jin Won, and “Jojo Rabbit” and Taika Waititi. Left off, of course, is last night’s Golden Globe winner Quentin Taratino for his writing of “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” as Tarantino is not a guild member and is holding out over a disagreement about a screen credit for his work on “Natural Born Killers.” That being said, he is still in contention for an Academy Award nomination.
