The WGA announced their nominations this week, which include eleven awards, three of which are for theatrical releases.

The categories and nominations are...

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY

DOCUMENTARY SCREENPLAY

Notes and Reactions...

  • Not a lot of surprises here, as many of the nominees here previous earned major nominations.
  • There were a couple of snubs, including Up and Inglourious Basterds, while the inclusion of The Hangover is also a bit of a surprise. Granted, it is a great movie, but it is not the kind that normally wins major awards.
  • This time around the Documentary category had more conventional picks, including The Cove, which is likely now the favorite to win, if by a small margin, as it is the highest profile film to previously pick up major nominations.
  • Food, Inc. was the only surprise omission in the documentary category.
