Producer's Guild and Writer's Guild Announce Nominees

With less than a month to go before Oscar nominations are finally handed out, two more guilds have announced their year-end nominees today, adding more fuel for those films at the top of the pack, but also shedding some new light on films that hadn't been mentioned as much in the awards race as of yet.

The Social NetworkWe'll start with the Producer's Guild, who didn't really surprise anyone with their picks. Current frontrunners The Social Network, Black Swan and The King's Speech are all among their 10 nominated films, with Ben Affleck's The Town squeezing in as perhaps the biggest surprise. Documentaries nominated include Waiting for Superman and Smash His Camera, while Toy Story 3, How to Train Your Dragon and Despicable Me fill out the animation category.
The Writer's Guild, however, left a little more room for surprise picks, especially since it was already announced that films like Toy Story 3, Blue Valentine and Winter's Bone wouldn't be eligible because they didn't fully comply with guild rules. As such, films like I Love You Phillip Morris and Please Give found themselves nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Screenplay, respectively.
Other screenplays nominated include favorites like The Social Network (adapted), True Grit (adapted), The Town (adapted), The Fighter (original), Black Swan (original) and Inception (original).
