Should we trust the WGA?

Okay, so the Writers Guild of America has voted Casablanca as the greatest screenplay of all time. I admit it's a good movie, but how good can it be if I fell asleep before Bogart utters his famous line, "Play it again, Sam" (I've heard rumors that he doesn't really say that, but I wouldn't know since I fell asleep) and how can we truly trust the WGA's opinion when they didn't award my show best daytime serial?

Me, bitter? Never!

Bitterness is welcomed here, but I seem to remember a time when someone (who was that?) said that AMC was the *cough* better show *cough*.

Not that I agree on the "Casablanca" thing, though. Why do they always go to the classics rather than contemporary films for these top ten things? And also if you're going to go with the classics for best screenplay? Puh-lease: "Philadelphia Story," hands freakin' down, with "Bringing Up Baby" a close second.

Also, way to be addicted to links. I'm just saying.

And who got me addicted to links? Uh, huh, I thought so. :)

I also want to say that AMC was not nominated for a WGA award this year and they USED to be good. I still have a soft spot for them because I was nursed on them. :)
