The 2010 Writers Guild Nominations Are In!

The Writers Guild of America have officially announced their nominations for this year’s awards. The Guild awards excellence in the field of screen-writing, and this year’s nominations are a mixed bag indeed.

We can’t help but feel a little outraged that brilliant films such as An Education, Inglourious Basterds, Up, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and In the Loop weren’t included for ‘not meeting WGA requirements’, leaving a rather sparse skyline in terms of great writing in 2009. Take a look for yourself and voice your opinion on the choices. We’re trying to be as un-judgemental as possible (sort of), but we can’t help but think Avatar’s main strength wasn’t really in its writing….
