Gone Girl"Boyhood" continues its march toward the Oscars with a nomination from the Writers Guild of America.

The guild announced its nominations for best original screenplay and best adapted screenplay, and predictably, "Boyhood" and "Gone Girl" feature in those categories, respectively.

Joining Richard Linklater in original screenplay competition is Wes Anderson for "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and Damien Chazelle for "Whiplash." Interestingly, "Whiplash" is classified as an adapted screenplay by the Academy Awards.

In the adaptation category, Gillian Flynn faces off against Jason Hall for "American Sniper" and Nick Hornby for "Wild."
