'Midnight In Paris' and 'Descendants' Win WGA Awards

FEB 20, 2012 - Midnight in Paris and The Descendants won the Writers Guild of America awards on Sunday in the final Hollywood guild awards show before this Sunday's Oscars.

Writer-director Woody Allen won Best Original Screenplay for Midnight in Paris, his tale of a young writer in Paris who faces questions of love, while The Descendants, which tells of a man who brings his family together in a time of grief while his wife is hospitalized (pic), earned the WGA trophy for Best Adapted Screenplay for writers Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash.

The awards should give both movies a lift in the race for the Oscars, the world's top film honours, because many guild members also belong to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that gives out the Oscars this Sunday (Feb 26).
