Just in case you thought otherwise, the awards season is still going strong. The 66th Annual Writers Guild Awards were handed out jointly in both New York and Los Angeles on Saturday night, giving props to the talented wordsmiths behind the TV series, and movies, we love.
On the television side, the guild honored the awards season darling, 'Breaking Bad' for best drama. The final season of the AMC series already picked up a Golden Globe and two SAG awards this year. The show beat out 'The Good Wife,' 'Homeland,' 'House of Cards,' and 'Mad Men.' However, 'House of Cards' did nab the new series award.
Meanwhile, HBO's F-word-loving 'Veep' took home the best comedy award. The political satire bested the final season of '30 Rock,' 'Modern Family,' 'Parks and Rec,' and 'Orange is the New Black.'
Spike Jonze's futuristic love story, 'Her,' about a man's relationship with his smart phone, won the best original screenplay prize, while Billy Ray's 'Captain Phillips' picked up the adapted screenplay honors, giving both writers that extra Oscar push. Actor/director Sarah Polley won the documentary award for 'Stories We Tell,' a film about her parents and how the filmmaker was the product of an extramarital affair.
The Writers Guild Awards is the last award show until the Academy Awards, which air March 2, giving us one whole month without any award shows whatsoever. You're welcome.
