Oscars 2011 Update: WGA Nominations

Before everyone gets all bent out of shape about what wasn’t nominated, let me say right now — the WGA has stricter rules about what is and what isn’t eligible than the music categories. They routinely deem films that you know will get Oscar nominations ineligible, and that leads to a complete imbalance in terms of what’s nominated for the WGA Awards and what’s nominated for the Oscars. So just know that up front — some things are on here because films like The Artist, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Drive, My Week with Marilyn, Shame, and The Iron Lady are ineligible. That said, here are your nominations for the WGA Awards:
