Writers Guild Nominations Announced

As hard as it may be to believe sometimes, someone (or someones) actually sits down and writes a movie or TV show before you end up seeing it at your local multiplex or on your favorite TV network. The people who do the sitting and the writing are, surprisingly, called writers and, like the Directors, the Golden Globes and the Oscars, they have their own awards show.

This week, the Writers Guild of America, which is the trade group and advocate for writers, announced its nominations for outstanding achievement in feature film and television, radio, news, promotional writing, and graphic animation during the 2009 season to be honored at the upcoming 2010 Writers Guild Awards on February 20, 2010, in Los Angeles and New York.

We realize that these nominations may not be as glamorous as the Golden Globes or the Oscars, but we kinda like writers around here and think they do a pretty important job.

'Lost' - La Fleur

This may be the first episode of the season that took place entirely on the island. It took us a while to find out when everything was taking place (around 1974), but time was really secondary in this episode. This was the Sawyer episode we.ve all been waiting for, and it didn.t disappoint.Quite honestly, this may be my favorite episode of the season so far. While I tend to like the episodes penned by Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, I must tip my hat to Elizabeth Sarnoff and Kyle Pennington, who kept this season.s winning streak alive. This episode was to the island survivors what .316. was o the Oceanic Six. When the time shifting finally stops, the islanders stumble upon a woman with a gun to her head. Juliet and Sawyer intervene, saving the woman and killing, as we learn later, two of Richard ...
