"Boyhood," "Grand Budapest Hotel" score Writers Guild nominations

The nominations are out for the Writers Guild Awards, highlighting the finest work in screenwriting during 2014. They include "Boyhood" and "Whiplash" for best original screenplay and "Gone Girl" and "Guardians of The Galaxy" for best adapted.

"Whiplash" is an especially interesting contender since the Academy is considering the film for best adapted screenplay (and not original screenplay) at the upcoming Oscars -- because writer-director Damien Chazelle filmed one scene and shopped it at film festivals to raise funding.
