Logan was nominated in the category 'Adapted Long Form' for his work on 'RKO 281', a film dealing with the problems Orson Welles faced in creating 'Citizen Kane'.

The other nominees in the category are 'Deliberate Intent', a thriller for FX that was written by Andy Wolk & Lisa Mohan, 'A House Divided', a Showtime civil war drama by Paris Qualles, and finally the only network film in the category, ABC's drama 'Tuesdays with Morrie', written by Tom Rickman.
