1. Manchester by the Sea
2. La La Land
3. Hell or High Water
4. The Lobster
5. 20th Century Women

One of the tightest races of the night between the top two. Musicals don't tend to do well in the screenplay categories, and Manchester received much of its praise specifically for its script, so I'll narrowly side with Lonergan's drama and assume the Globe screenplay win for La La Land was an anomaly.


BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY

 
 

1. Moonlight
2. Lion
3. Arrival
4. Hidden Figures
5. Fences

This is the best place to award Barry Jenkins and Moonlight, though all of the other nominees will put up a fight.
