Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Nope Secure WGA Nominations Following Oscar Snubs

After Black Panther: Wakanda Forever failed to get a screenplay (or Best Picture) nomination with The Oscars, and Jordan Peele's Nope was left out entirely, both films have been recognized by the Writer's Guild of America. The WGA's nominations for feature films have been revealed and include not only the Marvel Studios sequel and Peele's latest movie, but a few other deviations from The Academy Awards including Searchlight Pictures thriller/satire The Menu and the Universal's She Said, based on the New York Times Investigation into Harvey Weinstein. 

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever managed to secure multiple nominations this week from The Academy Awards including Best Visual Effects, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Original Song, and Best Supporting Actress for star Angela Bassett. The first film took home three prizes back in 2019, and seems poised to win again in the Best Costume Design category. Jordan Peele's Nope however walked away empty handed, with no nominations in any categories, despite previously being shortlisted in a few categories. Peele's 2017 debut Get Out won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar when it was released and even secured a Best Picture nod.
