The Writers Guild of America announced the winners of their 71st annual awards on Sunday, February 17 in a ceremony held simultaneously in Los Angeles (Beverly Hilton Hotel) and New York City (Edison Ballroom). Each year these kudos recognize the best writing of the prior calendar year in a plethora of genres including movies and television. Scroll down to see the full list of film and TV winners for the 2019 WGA Awards, with winners designated in gold text. Keep refreshing/reloading this page as we’ll be updating live. Many awards pundits see the Writers Guild as a bellwether for the Oscars, though there’s a catch: oftentimes the Oscar nominees are not eligible at the guild because they aren’t written under its strict guidelines. Thus, Oscar nominee “The Favourite” was not eligible at WGA as this foreign production did not go through the lengthy process of proving its eligibility. The guild’s nominations were originally unveiled on December 6 (for TV) and January 7 (for film).

The remaining two guild nominees are “Eighth Grade” and “A Quiet Place,” while the Oscars went with “The Favourite” and “First Reformed.” As for Best Adapted Screenplay, four scripts line up at both the Writers Guild and the Academy Awards: “BlacKkKlansman,” “Can You Ever Forgive Me?,” “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “A Star is Born.” The fifth script nominated at the WGA is “Black Panther” while Oscar voters opted for “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.” As for television, the Drama Series nominees are “The Americans,” “Better Call Saul,” “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Succession,” while the Comedy Series contenders are “Atlanta,” “Barry,” “GLOW,” “The Good Place” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” The writers guild also recognizes individual TV episodes as well as the best new series of the year, among many other categories.

But they are, as a matter of fact and law, schismatics who are automatically excommunicated. Canon 751: “schism is the refusal of submission to the Supreme Pontiff or […]
