Note: the guild has stricter eligibility requirements than the Oscars and other groups do (I think they only accept scripts that are written by guild members...?).

Is Tarantino not a guild member, or ineligible for some other reason? Because I figured he was just about guaranteed to get the Oscar for Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood.

He is not a guild member, no. Per ComingSoon.net:

Despite winning two Golden Globe Awards last night including Best Screenplay and Best Picture-Musical/Comedy, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was shut out from the nominations along with Pedro Almodóvar’s Pain & Glory, and Lulu Wang’s The Farewell due to WGA rules. Tarantino has refused to join the WGA ever since a dispute over credit on Oliver Stone’s 1994 film Natural Born Killers, and non-members are shut out of awards consideration from the group. This will not effect his Oscar chances, though.

Wait a minute, does this mean South Korean director Bong Joon Ho is a member of the Writers Guild of America? Huh.

Vote!

Also, note: the Oscars disagreed with the WGA on one of the positions, giving Once upon a Time... in Hollywood the spot that the WGA gave to Booksmart.
