    WGA Awards Preview: Writing on the Wall

    Original Screenplay

    The original category will likely maintain its eclectic flavor, as everything from politics and police corruption to immigration, sobriety and existential despair buoys a crop of strong screenplays.

    Thomas McCarthy, a character actor and writer-director, spun the indie gem "The Visitor" (Overture) into one of the goodwill hits of the year. A low-budget festival favorite about an older white man's experience with a pair of illegal African immigrants in New York City, "The Visitor" spoke to a compassion too often buried in a traumatized populace.

    Two scripts are likely front-runners for their real-life bases and the firsthand research that went into capturing the flavor of cultural and historical milieus. Dustin Lance Black's "Milk" (Focus) script manages to be both an intimate and an epic portrait of murdered San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, the first openly gay candidate to hold public office and a catalyst of the gay rights movement.

    J. Michael Straczynski's "Changeling" (Universal) takes a fascinating case of a mother's search for her young boy, missing and then "found" in 1920s Los Angeles, and wraps it in the corruption of the city's police and political machinery. While it certainly helps Straczynski's chances that Clint Eastwood directed (two of Eastwood's last four scribes have been nominated for WGA Awards), it's Straczynski's career arc from longtime TV scribe to sudden feature breakthrough that may earn him props from guild voters. ...

    Golden Globe Nominations

    The Golden Globe nominees are out

    List of nominees

    No recognition for Joe, but Angie is nominated as is Clint's score.

    And January Jones got nominated for Mad Men - yay! Dexter got another best series nom too.

    Kinda bizarre that (unreleased) Revolutionary Road got multiple nominations; the trailer makes it look a complete train wreck. I guess the screeners have been making the rounds .....

      Eve: WALL-E



      **ADRIENNE SHELLY AWARD: For a film that most passionately opposes violence against women:


      **ADRIENNE SHELLY AWARD: Adrienne Shelly was a promising actress and filmmaker who was brutally strangled in her apartment in 2006 at the age of forty by a construction worker in the building, after she complained about noise. Her killer tried to cover up his crime by hanging her from a shower20rack in her bathroom, to make it look like a suicide. He later confessed that he was having a ôbad day.ö Shelly, who left behind a baby daughter, had just completed her film Waitress, which she also starred in, and which was honored at Sundance after her death.

                        "Changeling" got three nominations altogether:

                        Best Actress in a Leading Role
                        Art Direction

                        I'd really have loved to see JMS get the recognition. Guess we'll have to hope he gets the BAFTA.
