"Guardians of the Galaxy" Gets Writers Guild Nomination! Check Out Full List of Nominees! 


The Writers Guild of America (WGA) has announced their nominees for their yearly awards and I'm very happy to report that Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" received a nod! Woot woot!

It was one of my favorite movies of 2014 (see my Top 10 here) and I'm glad that its zippy, entertaining, but highly heartfelt script is nominated.

I'm also elated that Dan Gilroy's "Nightcrawler" received a nod! That character-driven piece is all about writing (those soliloquies!) that gave Jake Gyllenhaal a great background to play with and director Gilroy (who also wrote the script) a fantastic material to helm!

Winners of the 2015 Writers Guild Awards will be revealed on Feb. 14th! I wonder who will receive a great Valentine from the WGA? Stay tuned...
