WGA nixes awards show


The WGA West has called off the 2/9 awards show in LA, unless the strike is resolved by then. WGA says it will announce its awards as planned but added, “There will be no Writers Guild of America West show until the strike is over.”

WGA East has not yet decided whether it will proceed with its awards event in NYC.

The WGA announced the nominations nonetheless:
