"Modern Family" and "Breaking Bad" are the clear front-runners in the nominations for the 2013 Writers Guild of America Awards.

Both shows are nominated in their respective series categories, and they each occupy at least half the slots in the episodic categories. "Breaking Bad" scored four of the six nominations for individual drama episodes -- that's half of the episodes the AMC series aired in 2012 -- while "Modern Family" has three of the six episodic comedy nods.

The other series nominees are "Boardwalk Empire," "Game of Thrones," "Homeland" and "Mad Men" in the drama category and "30 Rock," "Girls," "Louie" and "Parks and Recreation" on the comedy side.
