2011 Writers Guild of Canada (WGC) Screenwriting Awards - finalists

The Writers Guild of Canada released the names of the finalists for their 15th Annual WGC Screenwriting Awards today -- officially, at least (there had been a good deal of Facebook and Twitter congratulations going around last week as many finalists received prior notice). The finalists for feature film screenwriting were Michael Konyves for Barney’s Version, Adriana Maggs for Grown Up Movie Star and Dennis Foon Life, Above All.

The Documentary nominees were Jon Cooksey for How to Boil a Frog, Jefferson Lewis for Outbreak: Anatomy of a Plague and Christine Nielsen for The Pig Farm.

For television, a number of shows received multiple nominations. The double-nominees were the animated show League of Super Evil, Children & Youth show Wingin’ It, and police dramas Rookie Blue and Flashpoint. The comedy Less Than Kind II received three nominations.

The winners of the 2011 WGC Screenwriting Awards will be announced on Monday, April 11, 2011 during the ceremony at Maro in Toronto.
