Writers Guild Winners

More than a month after announcing its nominations, the Writers Guild of America finally gave out its awards last night. The winners are...

Original Screenplay: Mark Boal, The Hurt Locker
Adapted Screenplay: Jason Reitman and Sheldon Turner, Up in the Air
Documentary Screenplay: Mark Monroe, The Cove

TV Drama Series: Mad Men
TV Comedy Series: 30 Rock
New TV Series: Modern Family

View the complete list of winners here

Great effort for Modern Family to finally breakthrough this award season besting its flashier half Glee for a major award.

As for the movies, the little film that could has all but sewn up the awards season as The Hurt Locker has now won the PGA, DGA, WGA, ACE, and the Critics Choice Awards. I guess it's worthwhile to note that it did lose to Inglourious Basterds at the SAG and to Avatar at the Golden Globes, but it's prominently the front-runner as it also co-leads the nomination tally at the Academy Awards and as Award Daily's Sasha Stone points out, a film to win DGA, WGA, and ACE has gone on to win Best Picture at the Oscars 100% of the time.
