Boardwalk EmpireCable shows such as 'Breaking Bad' and 'Boardwalk Empire' dominate this year's list of award nominees from the Writers Guild of America.

Despite recent controversy, the writing staff of 'The Walking Dead' received a nomination under the best new series category. Also on the new series list: 'Men of a Certain Age,' 'Treme,' 'Justified' and 'Boardwalk Empire.'

For the last time ever, 'Lost' has scored a nomination for its appropriately titled series finale, 'The End.'

Over on the comedy side, '30 Rock,' 'Modern Family,' 'Futurama' and 'The Simpsons' all garnered more than one nomination. Check out more nominees after the jump.

Tina Fey totally slams Aaron Sorkin

tina feyThe gossipers over at New York Daily News have a great tidbit about Tina Fey dissing Aaron Sorkin at a recent event. She reportedly told the crowd at the Writers Guild Awards, "I hear Aaron Sorkin is in Los Angeles wearing the same dress- but longer, and not funny."

As the kids on That '70s Show would say, "Oooooh! BURN! BURN!"

Tina Fey was probably just being funny, but the girl definitely has earned the right to gloat. While 30 Rock and Studio 60 are both behind-the-scenes of sketch comedy shows, Fey's show prevails. 30 Rock is getting funnier and funnier, while Studio 60 is getting worse and worse. I stopped caring about Matt and Harriet in the second episode of Studio 60. And I can't wait to see Alec Baldwin each Thursday night!
