LOS ANGELES (AP) - "Blue Jasmine," ''Nebraska" and "American Hustle" have been nominated for Writers Guild honors, continuing their imprint on Hollywood's awards season.

The three comedies, joined by dramas "Dallas Buyers Club" and "Her," gained nods on Friday for exceptional screen writing in the original screenplay category. "Dallas Buyers Club" was shot in New Orleans.

"August: Osage County," ''Before Midnight," ''Captain Phillips," ''Lone Survivor," and "The Wolf of Wall Street" earned bids for adapted screenplay.

"Dirty Wars," ''Herblock - The Black & The White," ''No Place on Earth," ''Stories We Tell" and "We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks" ranked among nominated documentaries.

Victors will be honored on Saturday, Feb. 1, at simultaneous ceremonies in New York and Los Angeles.
