Nominations have been coming in left and right for many X-Files alumni recently. Vine Gilligan's Breaking Bad and Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon's Homeland are both doing very well so far.
The pair each have a Producers Guild Awards nomination and a "Drama Series" Writers Guild Awards nomination. In addition, Homeland has one WGA "Episodic Drama" nomination, and Breaking Bad took all but one other spot in the category with four nominations. As if that weren't enough, Homeland also grabbed two Directors Guild Awards nominations and Breaking Bad picked up one.

Thanks to every single one that participated in this project! We love this fandom.
Do you have better plans on 12/21 than to wait for the end of the world? For Mulder and Scully to come rescue us? Please, we know that most of you will be live tweeting how you're planning to survive the alien apocalypse. So, in the meantime, why not join us on yet another XF3 Tweet-A-Thon?
Philes from all over the world have united to party this coming Friday and they have organized this schedule, showcasing times in various times of the world when the tweeting activity starts.
Remember to only tweet #GreenlightXF3 during those hours.
While we're not the organizers of this event, we'll be following closely and bringing some party favors, 'cause really, what's a party without entertainment and then some?
So check out the times and if you have any questions, remember to follow us on twitter and also the user @Spoooked - one of the organizers of the online event.
As we get closer to December 21st/22nd, we find ourselves not only growing more and more nostalgic, but we are also having to mentally prepare for the beautiful videos and tweets that have been coming our way. That being said, we were in no way prepared for this week's featured video and while we started off with "Oooooh's" and "Awwww's" we quickly dissolved into tears.
