Three eras of NBC’s “The Tonight Show” will be celebrated in June at the Great American Comedy Festival in Johnny Carson’s hometown of Norfolk, Neb.

Nominations For The 68th Annual Writers Guild Of America Awards

6 January 2016 10:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Writers Guild of America has just announced the nominations for their annual awards for Best Screenplays (by writers who are guild signatories). That’s right, before you get nervous thinking that your favorite may have been left off the list, you must remember that the WGA is the group that is not all-inclusive and leaves out several of the top contenders each year due to them not being part of the guild or not following their very specific rules. For this reason, you won’t see Inside Out, The Hateful Eight, and Ex Machina in the Original Screenplay category or Room, Brooklyn, or Anomalisa in the Adapted screenplay category.

Taking a look at what’s left over for the nominations, we find many that were expected to make a showing, including Spotlight and Bridge of Spies for Original Screenplay, though they apparently had to sink to really low depths »

Nominations for the 2016 PGA Awards announced

5 January 2016 2:36 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Producer’s Guild of America has announced that The Big Short, Bridge Of Spies, Brooklyn, Ex Machina, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian, The Revenant, Sicario, Spotlight and Straight Outta Compton will contest the 2015 Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures at the 2016 PGA Awards.

Traditionally, the majority of PGA Award nominees will also find themselves nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards, given that they share many of the same voters. Which probably means bad luck for the likes of Carol and Room.

Here’s a full list of the nominations for film and TV…

The Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures
