Ballet drama Black Swan is set to face off against sci-fi thriller Inception and sporting drama The Fighter at the 2011 Writers Guild Awards after earning nominations in the top feature film category.
Meanwhile, writer Aaron Sorkin earned a nomination for best adapted screenplay thanks to his work on Facebook.com-inspired film The Social Network. True Grit, 127 Hours, I Love You Phillip Morris and The Town will also compete in the category.
The shortlists for the feature and documentary film categories were announced by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) on 4 January.
The nominations do not necessarily point to Oscar nods as the WGA only recognises productions that are guild signatories or have been shot under agreements with an affiliated international guild.
The winners of the 2011 Writers Guild Awards will be unveiled at dual ceremonies in New York and Los Angeles on 5 February.
