'Zero Dark Thirty,' 'Argo' among WGA nominees
05:00 AM, Jan 04, 2013
The Writers Guild of America announced its motion-picture screenplay nominees in three categories: Original, adapted and documentary. And, once again, several titles making awards noise — including Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Amour — were deemed ineligible.
Which does not mean those scripts won’t compete — or even take a trophy — come Oscar time, since the academy’s rules are less stringent.
Here are those that are in the running:
Zero Dark Thirty
Life of Pi
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Silver Linings Playbook
The Central Park Five
The Invisible War
Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God
Searching for Sugar Man
We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists
West of Memphis
Winners will be announced on Feb. 17.
