'American Hustle,' 'Her' and 'Wolf' Vying for Writers Guild Screenplay Honors; '12 Years' Not Eligible

The Writers Guild of America today announced the nominations for their 2014 Writers Guild Awards. “American Hustle,” “Her,” “Blue Jasmine” and “Wolf of Wall Street” are all up for awards. In case you’re wondering why John Ridley’s script for “12 Years a Slave” was shut out of the competition, it’s because it (along with a slew of others) were deemed not eligible.

Winners will be honored at the 2014
