The Writers Guild of America has released its nominations for its 2013 awards.

On the TV front, HBO's freshman series "Girls" made its debut with two nominations -- one for best new series and one for best comedy. Cable series shut out broadcast shows in the drama categories, while broadcast laffers dominate the comedy categories.

The winners will be announced Feb. 17 at simultaneous ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York.

Here's a full list of nominees:
