There’s nothing quite so subjective as humor in this world, and so what better way to discuss it than with a ranked list? That was the thinking guiding the newest and most ambitious group undertaking from the Writers Guild of America, the union collecting the film and television writers working in Hollywood (referred to as WGA West) and New York (WGA East). The august body polled itself on the funniest screenplays of all time and compiled the responses into a newly released list of the top 101, finally putting arguments over comedy supremacy to bed once and for all. No longer will movie dorks quibble over whether or not modern gem Bridesmaids (#16) is funnier than screwball classic Bringing Up Baby (#24). It is, and what’s more, we know that it is exactly eight movies funnier.

We kid, we kid. Lists of this nature are here to generate spirited debate, to provide neophyte movie-lovers with a good starting point in their cinephilia, and to take the temperature of the comedy world at large. The list, reproduced below, doesn’t hand down any ironclad rulings, but the trends do communicate the major figures of the history of comedy on film. Woody Allen reigns supreme with his Annie Hall script, and six more of his originals landed on the list as well. Harold Ramis trails him with five, Mel Brooks and Preston Sturges follow with four, and Charlie Chaplin, the Coen brothers, John Cleese, and Christopher Guest all made it into the three-script club.

Take a look at the list below, and set the respectful, impassioned debate off right with your take on the most egregious snub. For starters, where in god’s name is the Wet Hot American Summer script?
