2007 Writers Guild Awards Television Nominees

Today the Writers Guild of America (WGA) announced their nominees for the 2007 Writers Guild Awards. As per usual, theTVaddict’s favourites are marked in BOLD. Tomorrow, tune into theTVaddict.com for complete coverage of the GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATIONS. Boy award season is fun — and while I’ll definitely be hoping to see some nomination love for my deserving favourites — Edward James Olmos, Kristen Bell, Kelly Bishop, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA etc — I know better then to get my hopes up. I’m sure even though they’re not eligible, the academy will still find a way to honour FRASIER and EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND for their umpteenth time.

    Although you could argue for Scrubs or HIMYM they got the comedy slot pretty dead on. I love both Heroes and Ugly Betty but would have liked Big Love and Dexter in the best new show category. Best drama is always tough but I thought Lost this year has been down so that nod was a surprise.
