» ‘Inception’ Is The Big Winner At The Writers Guild Awards

by Bryan Enk, published on February 5, 2011

“Inception” has finally gotten some real love.

It’s been a bit puzzling as to why Christopher Nolan’s expertly structured and endlessly fascinating sci-fi tale hasn’t been getting more attention from industry award-givers. While it’s received kudos for its technical prowess, “Inception” has yet to be truly acknowledged for its significant achievements in directing, writing and acting.

Until now, as Nolan’s script was given the award for Best Original Screenplay by the Writers Guild of America at the WGA Awards. “Inception” emerged the winner against some extremely strong competition, including “The Kids Are All Right” and “The Fighter.”

Meanwhile, Aaron Sorkin’s script for “The Social Network” took home the award for Best Adapted Screenplay (no surprise there) and Charles Ferguson’s “Inside Job” won for Best Documentary Screenplay. Both films were winners at the recent Directors Guild Awards as well.

We love everything about “The Social Network,” but “Inception” was the true princess of the ball at the WGA Awards. Now, Christopher, go make “The Dark Knight Rises,” and make it awesome!
