WGA Award nominees announced

The Writers Guild Award nominees were announced yesterday with The Simpsons and The Office leading the pack. Winners will be announced during simultaneous New York and LA awards shows on February 11th. As far as I know, there is no plan to televise the awards, which is a shame since writers would probably prepare something slightly more interesting than the standard awards show fare - "Oh my God, I can't believe it...," "I didn't think I'd win, but I wrote a few names down on a cocktail napkin that I'll now produce from my pocket..." and "I'd like to thank my agent."

You can check out the WGA's list of drama, animated, variety and comedy nominees after the jump. (If you want to know who got nominated for short-form documentary or something, I'd recommend you head straight to the WGA's site. I'm only talking big money here.)

No Dexter = no credibility.

Kudos for adding the deceased Arrested Development though.

How can they nominate four Simpsons episodes from the last season with not one single of them being "The Seemingly Never-Ending Story", one of their best episodes in years????

Seriously how is Colbert not on the list for Comedy/Variety?

Oh well I guess it will make for another installment of Who's Not Honouring Me Now
