‘Inception’ upsets ‘Kids Are All Right’ at WGA Awards

HollywoodNews.com: The Oscars race was narrowed tonight at the WGA Awards ceremony with a surprising best original screenplay win for Christopher Nolan’s dream-within-a-dream epic, “Inception.”

While the stylish and star-studded film was a box office hit, Inception, which received eight Academy Award nominations, has been viewed as the dark horse of the season. Tonight’s WGA win for Nolan meant an upset for best original screenplay frontrunner The Kids Are All Right, the quirky indie comedy from writers Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg about a lesbian couple and their sperm donor. Inception also topped critical favorite The Fighter, now making the original screenplay category wide open for the taking on Oscars night.

Aaron Sorkin took home the WGA Award in the best adapted screenplay category for The Social Network, following his Friday night win at the USC Scripter Award. Sorkin, who has won every major award this season for his Social Network script, is the unattested frontrunner for the best adapted screenplay Oscar.
