'True Grit,' '127 Hours,' 'Inception,' 'Black Swan' Receive Writers Guild Noms

Huge hits such as “True Grit” and “Inception” will be up against smaller films that include “127 Hours” and “The Kids Are All Right” for screenplay honors from the Writers Guild of America.

The sci-fi smash “Inception” and the lesbian family tale “The Kids Are All Right” were among guild nominees Tuesday for best original screenplay, along with the ballet thriller “Black Swan,” the boxing saga “The Fighter” and the comic drama “Please Give.”

The Western “True Grit” and the survival story “127 Hours” are in the running for adapted screenplay, along with the con man tale “I Love You Phillip Morris,” the Facebook drama “The Social Network” and the heist thriller “The Town.”

Some of the year’s most acclaimed films, including “The King’s Speech,” '‘Winter’s Bone” and “Toy Story 3,” were ineligible because they were not made under the guild’s contract guidelines.

Documentary screenplay nominees are “Enemies of the People,” '‘Freedom Riders,” '‘Gasland,” '‘Inside Job,” '‘The Two Escobars” and “Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him)?”

Guild winners will be announced Feb. 5.
