It looked as if Toy Story 3 and The King’s Speech were going to ride a successful wave all the way to the Oscars considering their recent award nominations but unfortunately the WGA has thrown a monkey wrench into that plan. According to Variety, the screenplays for both films have been deemed ineligible by the Writer’s Guild of America. Burn!

The trade reports that the WGA ballots were recently mailed out and they featured 76 screenplays, 43 originals, and 33 adapted. Due to their strict regulations the number of candidates this year is significantly less than last. The Guild requires that screenplays be produced under WGA jurisdiction and that they be formally submitted for consideration. This means that besides Toy Story 3 and The King’s Speech, other films to receive the cold shoulder include Another Year, Biutiful, Blue Valentine, The Ghost Writer, Made in Dagenham, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and Winter’s Bone.
