The Writers Guild of America, which obviously focuses on screenplays, have announced their selections for best screenplays of the year. Picking up steam, The Dark Knight has received another positive nod.

WGA Best Screenplay Nominees

For Original Screenplay, the WGA selected Burn After Reading, Milk, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Visitor and The Wrestler. I'm going to make an early prediction that either The Wrestler or Milk wins it.

For the Adapted Screenplay bracket, I believe the competition is a bit more fierce. Here you'll find The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon, Slumdog Millionaire, The Dark Knight and Doubt.

This is such a tough selection of films that I'm stuck and can't even risk a prediction. I thought each of these films were both incredible and very different from one another. Leaving me to wonder: How is one to choose?

But back to the point -- If TDK continues to get nods like this, expect it to have some serious momentum Academy time.
