Writers Guild Awards Nolan & Sorkin

For the moment, The King's Speech guild domination was halted by the Writers Guild which deemed the film ineligible. This benefited Inception's screenwriter, Christopher Nolan, who actually picked up most critics awards for writing this season, second only to Aaron Sorkin for The Social Network. Both writers expectantly picked up the win.

The other winners are:

Original Screenplay: Christopher Nolan, Inception
Adapted Screenplay: Aaron Sorkin, The Social Network
Documentary Screenplay: Charles Ferguson, Inside Job

TV Drama Series: Mad Men
TV Comedy Series: Modern Family
New TV Series: Boardwalk Empire

View the complete list of winners here.

Don't have much to say about the TV winners. They all deserved it, but it's all a bit boring/safe and thus who cares?

Back to the movies, look for Sorkin to repeat his dominance throughout awards season at the Academy Awards in a few weeks. It's probably the lockiest of any of the awards of the night. For original screenplay, it'll be a tough fight between Nolan and The King's Speech's screenwriter David Seidler. The former should win, but the latter could get swept up with a possible Speech sweep.
