‘True Grit,’ ‘127 Hours’ Receive Writer Noms

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

“Inception” and “The Kids Are All Right” were among guild nominees Tuesday for best original screenplay, along with “Black Swan,” “The Fighter” and “Please Give.”

“True Grit” and “127 Hours are in the running for adapted screenplay, along with “I Love You Phillip Morris,” “The Social Network” and “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.

Guild winners will be announced Feb. 5.
