nominees//2015 WRITERS GUILD OF AMERICA AWARDS

AWARDS COVERAGE



With a huge sigh of relief, Boyhood managed to received a nomination from the Writers Guild of America, but Birdman can't say the same. The original screenplay frontrunner, The Grand Budapest Hotel, received a nod, as did Whiplash. That film, though, will be competing for a nomination in the adapted screenplay category of the Academy Awards. Guardians of the Galaxy gets a nod for adapted screenplay, firming its chances as being the first major Marvel film to receive guild recognition. Will Oscar follow?
