The Writers Guild Nominations are out, after a tempestuous announcement last year when Hollywood was on the verge of carnage during the writers' strike. You may start to see a pattern forming here with the same films:

Burn After Reading - Joel & Ethan Coen
Milk - Dustin Lance Black
Vicky Cristina Barcelona - Woody Allen
The Visitor - Tom McCarthy
The Wrestler - Robert Siegel

The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button - Eric Roth
The Dark Knight - Jonathan & Justin Nolan
Doubt - John Patrick Shanley
Frost/Nixon - Peter Morgan
Slumdog Millionaire –-Simon Beaufoy

Boogie Man: The Lee Atwater Story - Stefan Forbes and Noland Walker
Chicago 10 - Brett Morgen
Fuel – Johnny O’Hara
Gonzo: The Life And Work Of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson – Alex Gibney
Waltz With Bashir – Ari Folman

It's Woody Allen's 17th WGA nomination. While it's nice to see The Dark Knight get some love.
