Home Media Writers Guild Awards Go to “Imitation Game,” “Louie,” “True Detective,” “General Hospital,”...

with updates The Writers Guild gave awards out tonight, although it’s unclear what they mean since “Selma” and “Birdman” weren’t nominated. But the Adapted Screenplay award went to “The Imitation Game.” “Louie” won for TV Comedy, “The Good Wife” for TV Drama, and “True Detective” for Best New Series. Norman Lear was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award, which seems weird since he’s 92. Didn’t he get it like 20 years ago? Or 10? And if he didn’t, wow. Anyway, I’m told the ceremonies on both coasts were quite dull. The stars who showed up left right away, and in New York the press wasn’t treated well. I mean, who cares? Paul McCartney is just about to go on stage at Irving Plaza. But congrats to Imitation Game writer Graham Moore. That script is solid.
