Vote!

Note: the Oscars agreed with three of the WGA picks, but substituted The Favourite and First Reformed for Eighth Grade and A Quiet Place.

And the winner is... Eighth Grade, which wasn't even nominated for the Oscar.

Incidentally, Kris Tapley notes on Twitter that The Favourite, which *is* nominated for the Oscar (and won the BAFTA), wasn't eligible for the Writers Guild award. So, hmmm. If Oscar nominees Green Book, Roma and Vice lost to Eighth Grade, one wonders if they would have also lost to The Favourite, had it been nominated for this award.
