Writers Guild Likes Lincoln

Jan. 4, 2013

The race for the Oscars is becoming clearer by the day.

The Writers Guild of America on Friday nominated a string of critical successes for their annual screenwriting awards, including hot favourites like Zero Dark Thirty and Lincoln, together with quirkier films like Silver Linings Playbook, The Master and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Other films among the 10 nominees were Flight, Looper, Life of Pi, Argo and Moonrise Kingdom.

The nominations followed by a day the announcement of the Producers Guild of America shortlist which included Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Moonrise Kingdom, Silver Linings Playbook, Skyfall, and Zero Dark Thirty.

The Writers Guild Awards will be handed out on February 17, a week before the Oscars.
