Very soon the Writers Guild Awards will begin in Beverly Hills, California.  At least 27 writing awards will be handed out tonight, but the two biggest awards will be the main focus of the night: original screenplay and adapted screenplay.

The WGA Awards are usually a reliable indicator of who will win on Oscar night.  Next month it is very likely that Jordan Peele ("Get Out") and James Ivory ("Call Me By Your Name") will be odds on for Oscar glory.

Mr. Ivory's adaptation of the book "Call Me By Your Name" won the key Scripters' Award on Saturday night.  The win makes Mr. Ivory an irresistible favorite tonight for adapted screenplay.

A number of people have forecasted Mr. Peele's original screenplay for "Get Out" as an odds-on winner for the Oscar.  "Get Out" is still very much in the public mind almost a year later, and the dialogue has been oft-repeated by viewers of the film.  "The sunken place", "no no no no no no no", "I'd vote for Obama for a third term", and almost anything spoken by Lil Rel Howery's character Rod in "Get Out" have all been quoted in tweets and elsewhere for the last year.

It looks like Mr. Peele's award to lose.

Stay tuned.  And good luck to all of the nominees tonight.
