2009 Writers Guild Awards Winners

Yesterday the WGA announced the nominations and here they are for some categories. Winners are in Red.

Original Screenplay
Burn After Reading
Vicky Cristina Barcelona
The Visitor
The Wrestler

Adapted Screenplay
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
The Dark Knight
*Slumdog Millionaire

Documentary Screenplay
Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story
Chicago 10
Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Tompson
*Waltz with Bashir

To check the TV and other categories nominees go here. Winners will be honored on Saturday, February 7th at simultaneous ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York.

I’m glad that Waltz with Bashir found its way into these awards and somehow I feel that probably the Academy Awards nominees will look very similar to the above. Perhaps my only surprise will be to see Woody Allen nominated for original screenplay at the Oscars.
