According to IndieWire, there are a number of films that were not eligible for the WGA nominations. The Guild takes advantage of its fame by withholding non-signatories from being part of the WGA Awards. That is why a number of British, indie and animated movies are left from the list each year. Fortunately, the WGA nominations are not influential towards the upcoming Oscar nominations.
