2012 Writers Guild Awards


Seems like the WGA had made their choice of nominees based upon a limited pool of eligible film screenplays. Films like "War Horse", "The Tree of Life", and "Margin Calls" were some of the notable omissions that we dearly missed. That said, we're also not exactly sure how detrimental and impactful the WGA's verdict would be on the eventual Academy Awards.

The complete list of nominees for the 2012 WGA Awards is as follow:
