Has WGA — oops — tattled on its award winners?

Hmmm. It looks like the Writers Guild of America may have accidentally revealed its award winnersWga1 when announcing its nominees. Below, check out our screen shot of what is currently at the guild's website (and CLICK HERE to see the original page, if still posted).

Notice that there's no apparent order to the lists — they're not arranged alphabetical by author's last name or film title.

Instead, the films that most pundits believe are frontrunners — "Juno" and "No Country for Old Men" — are perched on top, suggesting that this order may reflect the ranking of how many votes they got. Rumor has it has last year the guild inadvertently spilled beans this same way, but rearranged the lists alphabetically as soon as the goof was pointed out.
