writers - Writers Guild of America Awards: And the winners are ...

Get Out, Will & Grace, and The Handmaid’s Tale were a few of the huge winners at Sunday’s Writers Guild of America Awards.

WGA members elect the very best writing from movies and TELEVISION of the previous year. The movie script winners, in specific, are typically a precursor for who might win at the Academy Awards, which will air March 4 on ABC. Here are a few of the night’s victors at the awards event, held at the same time in Los Angeles (where Patton Oswalt hosted) and New York.
