Earlier today, The Writer’s Guild of America announced their nominations for the best screenplays of 2013. While it’s only natural to look at these nominations and try to use them as an Oscar oracle, it should be remembered that only 95 of the 289 Oscar-eligible films were also eligible for a WGA nomination.* Among those films not eligible to be nominated: 12 Years A Slave, Philomena, Fruitvale Station, and Rush.
Here are the nominees:
Dallas Buyers Club,
August: Osage County,
The Wolf of Wall Street
