WGA Awards 2013 Winners Los AngelesLOS ANGELES… Refresh for latest… Speeches & Color To Come
The 65th Annual Writers Guild Awards Los Angeles ceremony  tonight honored outstanding achievement in writing in film, television, radio, new media, and other awards categories. The presentation at the JW Marriott LA Live was going on simultaneously with the New York City ceremony. (WGA East Awards 2013 Ceremony -  LIVE). Or at least it was supposed to. Instead, the LA event lagged NYC’s by almost an hour. Which meant award winners were being announced first by WGAE and then trickling into the WGAW audience to ruin any suspense. ”This is outrageous,” one audience member emailed me from the scene. “Word of Chris Terrio’s Argo win for Adapted Screenplay in NYC came in right after Lincoln nominee Tony Kushner accepted his Paul Selvin award from Steven Spielberg. No award for Adapted Screenplay still in sight in LA. WTF?” What a mess. Unfortunately, the WGAW had no control over the East’s announcements. Traditionally, NYC gives out some news and radio kudos that the West doesn’t. However, the WGAE took to tweeting all the winners, which is another reason why they started beating the announcements of the WGAW which made a policy not to tweet. Last year, WGAW and WGAE were nearly synced. The only problem was when the East trumped the West with the announcement of Woody Allen winning Original Screenplay for Midnight In Paris.

The WGA nominations for theatrical motion pictures were in 3 categories: Original Screenplay, Adapted Screenplay and Documentary Screenplay. Missing include Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Amour, Beasts Of The Southern Wild and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel which were excluded from the nomination ballots for not being produced under guild jurisdiction or under a collective bargaining agreement in Canada, Ireland, New Zealand or the UK. (Oscar guidelines are less restrictive.) But those nominees out of the 112 eligible screenplays include for Original Screenplay the films FlightLooperThe MasterMoonrise Kingdom, and Zero Dark Thirty,and for Adapted Screenplay the films ArgoLife Of PiLincoln, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, and Silver Linings Playbook.

Those honors bestowed included the prestigious Laurel Awards. The Screen Laurel Award to Tom Stoppard is given to that member of the Guild who, in the opinion of the current Board of Directors, has advanced the literature of the motion picture through the years, and who has made outstanding contributions to the profession of the screenwriter. The Paddy Chayefsky Laurel Award to Joshua Brand & John Falsey is given to those members of the Guild who, in the opinion of the current Board of Directors, have advanced the literature of television through the years, and who have made outstanding contributions to the profession of the television writer. Other honors are the Valentine Davies Award to Phil Rosenthal, the Morgan Cox Award to Daniel Petrie Jr, the Paul Selvin Award to Tony Kushner, the Animation Writers Caucus Award to Matt Groening.

Tonight’s ceremony in the Diamond Ballroom is being hosted by Castle‘s Nathan Fillion who kicked it off by taking a jab at his own ABC show, saying “If you haven’t seen Castle, I’m not offended, I’m a pretty big deal with your mom.” Fillion then segued into joking about the tiffs that occur between writers and actors, particularly how actors often forget the writers’ names. Fillion said that, on his show, he knows them by how they look — “the nerdy girl” and “the Jewish guy” and so on. ”It all starts here with you.  I think it’s important that I — future potential employee — know this and appreciate it,” added Fillion, “As an actor, I play a valuable role in the process. I take your work out into the world where I take credit for it.” Fillion went on to describe the writer’s script directions. “If you write something in all caps, I know what you want me to do. If you use italics, it’s a little different. If you use ellipses, I know to drag it out. Actors and writers, we don’t see eye to eye. But at least we can agree tonight on one thing – those producers can sure be dicks! (Yeah, I’m going to hear about this tomorrow.)”

Among the Hollywood bigwigs attending were LucasFilm’s Kathleen Kennedy, her Lincoln producing partner Frank Marshall, their director Steven Spielberg of DreamWorks Studios, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, Zero Dark Thirty director Kathleen Bigelow, and legendary screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola who was here his son Roman who is nominated for Moonrise Kingdom.
