January 4, 2011 | 10:28 am


The Writers Guild of America Awards nominations on Tuesday morning saw the surprise inclusion of "I Love You Phillip Morris" and "Please Give." This was the first awards showing for either film.

The nominations for best original screenplay are: "Black Swan," "The Fighter," "Inception," "The Kids Are All Right" and "Please Give." Nominees for adapted screenplay are "127 Hours," "I Love You Phillip Morris," "The Social Network," "The Town" and "True Grit."

Several high-profile films were not eligible for the nominations as they were not penned by guild members.

The awards will be handed out Feb. 5 at simultaneous ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York.
