Writers Guild Association Nominees

American Hustle- Eric Warren Singer & David O. Russell
Blue Jasmine- Woody Allen
Dallas Buyers Club- Craig Borten & Melisa Wallack
Her- Spike Jonze
Nebraska- Bob Nelson

Holy cow!  Dallas Buyers Club rackets yet another guild mention and thus so far is tied with American Hustle as the only film to receive top nods from the PGA, WGA and SAG.  In this shocking development, Inside Llewyn Davis, the latest sublime work from the Brothers Coen was snubbed yet again.  Gravity also failed to make the grade.
August: Osage County- Tracy Letts
Before Midnight- Richard Linklater, Julie Delpy & Ethan Hawke
Captain Phillips- Billy Ray
Lone Survivor- Peter Berg
The Wolf of Wall Street- Terence Winter

Whereas in the Adapted Screenplay category, a butt load of top contenders were deemed ineligible (12 Years a Slave, Philomena, Rush, Blue is the Warmest Color, Mandela) so it was spare parts.  Lone Survivor, Peter Berg's wartime flick got the consolation prize.
Dirty Wars- Jeremy Scahill & David Riker
Herblock-- The Black & the White- Sara Lukinson & Michael Stevens
No Place on Earth- Janet Tobias & Paul Laikin
Stories We Tell- Sarah Polley
We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wiki-Leaks- Alex Gibney
