'The King's Speech', 'Blue Valentine' and More Disqualified From WGA Awards


The likes of 'Toy Story 3', 'Another Year' and 'Never Let Me Go' are also deemed ineligible by the WGA because they don't meet the guild's Minimum Basic Agreement.

Already hauled at British Independent Film Awards and receiving Oscar buzz, "The King's Speech" will miss a chance to win at upcoming Writers Guild Awards. While the WGA has not unveiled the nominations until January 4, 2011, it has been pointed out by The Wrap that the British film along with "Blue Valentine", "Toy Story 3", "Winter's Bone" and "Another Year" will not make it to the list.

These movie are left off the list because they do not meet "the guild's Minimum Basic Agreement, or the agreements of several affiliated international guilds." Without purposely trying to indiscriminate the best films of the year, the Writers Guild Awards aim "to honor the best films produced by WGA members, or under WGA guidelines."

Also missing from the WGA ballot are "The Ghost Writer", "Nowhere Boy", "The Way Back", "Never Let Me Go", "Love and Other Drugs", "Made in Dagenham", "Green Zone", "Biutiful" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World".

This year, the WGA recognizes 43 films qualified for the original screenplay category, and 33 films for adapted screenplay.
