The Writers Guild of America announced its nominations today, so I took my chance to comb through for women’s names. There weren’t many, but there were more than women writers nominated for Golden Globes. Are there names missing that you’d like to have seen included? Who are they?
Here are the women nominated for the 2012 WGA Awards:
Bathsheba Doran (episode: “The Age of Reason”/show: “Boardwalk Empire”)
Moira Walley-Beckett (w/Thomas Schnauz) (episode: “End Times”/show: “Breaking Bad”)
Tracey Wigfield (episode: “Queen of Jordan”/show: “30 Rock”)
Ilana Wernick (w/Dan O’Shannon) (episode: “Mother’s Day”/show: “Modern Family”)
Long Form – Original:
Jill Gordon, Deirdre O’Connor, Wendy West (w/Stephen Godchaux) (“Five” – TV film)
