The Oscar Nominations are going to be coming in a few days, and to prime the pump for that the Writers Guild of America has unveiled its list of nominees for their top screenplay awards. It comes as no surprise that Zero Dark ThirtyMoonrise Kingdom, The Master and Lincoln ended up getting nominated, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that Looper and The Perks of Being a Wallflower also got nominated! These were both incredibly well scripted films, and I'm so happy to see they got nominated. I hope they end up getting nominated for an Oscar as well! 

The reason you don't see films like Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, William Nicholson’s Les Misérables, Michael Haneke’s Amour, and Lucy Alibar and Benh Zeitlin’s Beasts of the Southern Wild on the list is because they weren't produced under the Guild's jurisdiction. 

Here's the full list of nominations, »
