In its freshman year, Breaking Bad has garnered three nominations from the Writers Guild of America — one for best new series and and two for best episode.
For new series, the drama — written by Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, Patty Lin and George Mastras — is up against Fox’s Fringe, ABC’s Life on Mars and HBO’s In Treatment and True Blood. Last year, Mad Men went home with this prize. Can AMC make it two in a row?
Breaking Bad‘s pilot episode, penned by Gilligan, and “Gray Matter,” penned by Lin, are competing for best episode with episodes of Fox’s House, USA’s Burn Notice, ABC’s Eli Stone and Showtime’s Dexter.
