Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Screenplay – Motion Picture

The competition: Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird), Aaron Sorkin (Molly’s Game), Liz Hannah and Josh Singer (The Post), Guillermo Del Toro and Vanessa Taylor (The Shape of Water), Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri)

For your information: Sorkin has been nominated six times, winning for “The Social Network” and “Steve Jobs.” This year, his film is the only one not nominated for a best picture prize. Singer was nominated two years ago for a similar project, “Spotlight.” Gerwig has been nominated before for acting work. Del Toro and McDonagh are also nominated as their film’s directors this year.

Who should win? I haven’t seen Sorkin’s film yet. I liked the writing in “Lady Bird” and “The Shape of Water” best.

Who will win? I think that Gerwig could triumph here for Lady Bird, though any of the others could too.
