Pakistani-American actor Kumail Nanjian’s ‘The Big Sick’ nominated for Writers Guild Awards 2018

Hugh Jackman’s Logan, Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani’s The Big Sick and James Franco’s The Disaster Artist are among the films nominated for the The Writers Guild of America Awards 2018.

The annual award show recognizes Hollywood’s screenwriters for outstanding achievements in film, television, radio and video game writing, including both fiction and non-fiction categories.

The Big Sick bagged the Career Achievement Award earlier this year at the Palm Springs International Film Festival; won the Audience Award: Festival Favorites at the South by Southwest film festival last year; and won the Comedy Ensemble Award at the Hollywood Film Awards.

Other contenders in the adapted screenplay category of The Writers Guild of America Awards include James Ivory’s screenplay for Call Me by Your Name, Scott Neustadter and Michael H Weber’s screenplay for Franco-starrer The Disaster Artist, the Aaron Sorkin-penned Molly’s Game and the Virgil Williams-Dee Rees collaboration Mudbound.
