WGA Nominations Are In, Loves Phillip Morris
These are not too shocking, except for the addition of I Love You Phillip Morris in the Best Adapted category. Glad the WGA is giving that film so much due love. This would be more exciting if it weren’t for all the major Oscar contenders that the Writers Guild disqualified.

I really want to watch I Love You Phillip Morris. It looks really good. I can’t wait for the oscar-night. Excitement.
a. thanks for commenting!
b. definitely check it out if you get the chance, it’s a real gem.
Totally agree, it’s just not a real competition is it if all of the best, real contenders aren’t included in the race. I didn’t really get for what reasons they were disqualified. King’s Speech ? Come on.
the writers have to be a member of the WGA in order to qualify for their awards. That’s why Tarantino wasn’t eligible last year.
