Writers Guild of America nominations


The Writers Guild of America announced their nominees today. This isn't always a marker of which screenplays will also have Oscar nominations, as there are always a few that aren't eligible for these (much like 12 Years a Slave). Still, it gives us an idea of where minds are at the beginning of the year. And with several guilds including it in their nominations, it certainly seems Dallas Buyers Club may have a shot at a Best Picture Nomination.

  1. Dallas Buyers Club is really on a roll! I'm thinking it will definitely get a best pic nod. Right now I'm feeling Hustle for the win. But don't quote me on that. :)
