Well, we sure didn’t expect to ever have that as our lead-in image this season, but the Writers Guild of America managed to fling us a surprise today by nominating the Mark Wahlberg action flick Lone Survivor in their Best Adapted Screenplay category.

PGA buys Dallas, but leaves Llewyn Davis outside

If there is anything today’s PGA nominations confirmed, it’s that Dallas Buyers Club is beginning to look more and more like a good bet for an Oscar nomination.

The upcoming Writers Guild Awards will be really interesting to …

Through a haze of champagne, we are going to try to look ahead with our Gold Rush Gang today to Friday, when the Writers Guild of America brings us their nominations.
