The Writers Guild of America Awards a good predictor of who'll wind up among Oscar's nominated writers were announced Thursday. WGA original screenplay nods went to Gosford Park, The Man Who Wasn't There, Monster's Ball, Moulin Rouge and The Royal Tenenbaums. Nominations for screenplays based on previously published material went to A Beautiful Mind, Black Hawk Down, Bridget Jones's Diary, Ghost World and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. As reported Thursday, the WGA declared Oscar shoo-ins In the Bedroom (written by Todd Field and Rob Festinger) and Memento (written by Christopher Nolan) ineligible for the guild's screenplay honors due to a technicality.
