The Writers Guild of America has given one of its five best Original Screenplay Award nominations to Judd Apatow and Steve Carell‘s The 40 year-Old Virgin….what? In the process they’ve blown off Craig Brewer’s Hustle & Flow, Woody Allen’s Match Point and Guillermo Ariagga’s superb The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada. Does Judd Apatow host a WGA poker game or something? Is there some kind of “aww, Judd has worked so hard and he’s a nice guy and needs a pat on the back” sentiment out there? The 40 Year-Old Virgin is, at best, an above-average relationship comedy during its second half, but during the oafish first half it’s not even close to award-worthy. This is bar none one of the most moronic, jaw-dropping calls the WGA has ever made. Congrats, meanwhile, to the other four nominees for Best Original Screenplay — Cinderella Man‘s Cliff Hollingsworth and Akiva Goldsman, Crash‘s Paul Haggis & Bobby Moresco, Good Night, And Good Luck‘s George Clooney and Grant Heslov and The Squid and the Whale‘s Noah Baumbach.
