2020 WGA Awards Winners

With the Academy Awards coming next week, awards season is coming to a close. Even though it seems like there won’t be many surprises when the trophies are handed out, the 2020 Writers Guild Awards winners handed out this weekend would seem to indicate that there could still be some surprises when the major categories are handed out.

Bong Joon-ho‘s acclaimed Parasite came away with the award for Original Screenplay for the script written by the director himself and co-writer Han Jin Won. Meanwhile, the award for Adapted Screenplay went to Taika Waititi for Jojo Rabbit. That means these movies still have a chance at landing some Oscar gold next week.

Meanwhile, the television side of the 2020 Writers Guild Awards winners saw HBO take home a bunch of trophies. Watchmen, Barry, Succession, and Chernobyl all came away with wins in different categories. You can find out the full list of 2020 Writers Guild Awards winners below. Read More »

Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, the equivalent of Best Picture among the 2020 PGA Awards winners.

In a turn that was a little less surprising after its victory at the Golden Globes a couple weeks ago, Sam Mendes‘ war drama 1917 landed the top prize. But who walked away with awards for animated and documentary features, as well as all the television awards? Get the full list of 2020 PGA Awards winners below. Read More »
