Woody Allen has earned his 20th Writers Guild of America nomination, a Best Original Screenplay nod for Midnight in Paris, his 42nd film. The 76-year-old writer/director/psyche-tapper saw his first WGA nom in 1966 for What's New Pussycat? The latest recognition comes a solid 25 years after Allen received the WGA's lifetime-achievement-y Laurel Award.

Congratulations, Woody; Midnight in Paris was delightful.
