We love any excuse to talk about Breaking Bad, even though the show is long gone. Thankfully, critics and fans adore this show, so as awards season rolls on, we'll be seeing Breaking Bad listed many times for months and months to come. And the nominations for the 2014 Writers Guild Awards are no different.

Breaking Bad, Orange Is the New Black and Modern Family dominated the noms that were released today, in both the series categories and the episodic categories. Netflix made a very strong showing, as House of Cards got plenty of love, too.  TV Scoop team favorite Parks and Recreation also got nods in different categories, meaning we haven't lost all hope in humanity quite yet.
