Home Media WGA Awards: Nolan “Inception,” Sorkin “Social,” “World Turns,” “Boardwalk”

From the Writers Guild Awards in Hollywood:

Surprise! Christopher Nolan won Best Original Screenplay for “Inception.” (Note: “The King’s Speech” was ineligible, as were a few others.)

As expected, and deserved: Aaron Sorkin, “The Social Network,” Best Adapted Screenplay…

Martin Scorsese‘s “Boardwalk Empire” just won the WGA award for Best new show. “Mad Men” won for Best TV episodic drama and best drama series..

This means that “BE” — thanks to HBO– has swept through the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards, the Directors Guild and now the Writers Guild. Of course, the Scorsese name helps, and the show is very good, but really…Wow… congrats…But “Mad Men” still remains a winner.

Charles Ferguson‘s documentary, “Inside Job,” won the WGA just now. He won the DGA last week in the same ballroom…

“As the World Turns” just won for best written soap. CBS, of course, killed it last fall after 54 years, and replaced it with the idiotic “The Talk”…
