Writers Guild of America names film award nominees

SHARE Writers Guild of America names film award nominees

Nominees for the 2014 Writers Guild Awards in film were announced Friday.

You might notice a few high-profile movies missing from the list, either because guild guidelines rendered them ineligible (“12 Years a Slave,” “Rush”) or they simply weren’t deemed up to snuff (“Gravity,” “Inside Llewyn Davis”).

The statues will get doled out to winners Feb. 1 at simultaneous ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York. (WGA nominees in television, radio and other categories were announced last month. Candidates for videogame writing awards will be unveiled Jan. 9.)
