Former Star Trek: Voyager scribe Bryan Fuller last week received a Writers Guild Award nomination.
Fuller and his co-writer Todd Holland were nominated in the episodic comedy category for their script for the pilot episode of Wonderfalls, according to the Writers Guild web site. Wonderfalls aired on the FOX network earlier this year but was axed after just four episodes owing to low ratings. Nevertheless, the show was critically acclaimed and received a Television Critics Association Award nomination for Outstanding New Program of 2004.
Three other series are competing for the title of best episodic comedy script. Sex and the City, which ended its run this year, is nominated for two episodes, "Splat!" and "The Ick Factor". Arrested Development, winner of five Emmys in its first season, and Malcolm in the Middle each have one nomination a piece.
The nominations for the screen nominees are scheduled to be announced on January 13, 2005, with the awards ceremony set to be held on February 19. One Star Trek alumnus likely to be featured among the film honorees is John Logan, who recently received a Golden Globe nomination for his script for The Aviator. Logan took home a WGA Award in 2001 for the telefilm RKO 281, which told the story of the making of Citizen Kane.
