No Screeners Probably Means No Screenplay Awards for Weinstein Movies

Did you write a movie for Weinstein Co., and would you like a Writers Guild of America award for doing so? Too bad: Weinstein's not sending WGA members any screeners. Sorry, Nine, Inglorious Basterds, The Road, and A Single Man.

Last year neither Rachel Getting Married nor Synecdoche, New York were nominated, and some suspected it was because Weinstein Co. Sony (whoops!) didn't send out screeners. Because: "Over the past few years, it's been near-impossible to score a WGA nomination without sending its membership a screener, and last year, nine of the ten nominees had played the game."
