WGA Nods Go to Juno, No Country, Knocked Up
While on strike, the Writers Guild gives its picks for top movies of the year
Ellen Page’s 16-year-old mom-to-be Juno and George Clooney’s sleazy Michael Clayton are among the films named as The Writers Guild of America’s best of 2007.
Those two films are up against The Savages, Knocked Up and Lars and the Real Girl for Best Original Screenplay in the annual WGA Awards.
Nominees for Best Adapted Screenplay include No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Into the Wild, and Zodiac.
Notably, Michael Moore’s Sicko is nominated for Best Documentary Screenplay. WGA Award winners will be announced Feb. 9 in L.A. and New York.
