The WGA announced their winners for best screenplays of 2014, the last of the top tier important guilds. "Birdman" was ineligible so of course, the critical favorite "The Grand Budapest Hotel" won best original screenplay while the more predictable baity adaptation of an 'inspiring' story award went to "The Imitation Game". I shouldn't be making jokes because well, none of the adapted screenplay contenders are my outright favorites. I have preferences but oh well. Both of these winners may repeat at the Oscars but I believe "Birdman" will win original screenplay there.

"The Grand Budapest Hotel" - Screenplay by: Wes Anderson, Story by: Wes Anderson & Hugo Guinness
