Writer's Guild of America (WGA) Award Winners

I was hoping for a Moonrise Kingdom win, just because it hasn't won really anything this season, but happy for Boal. I still don't get how voters can pick Argo over Lincoln in any screenplay award. The film as a whole, fine, but no one accomplised what Kushner did this year, and despite my sincere hope that Oscar voters see the truth, my guess is that Argo repeats next week. In terms of Original Screenplay, ZDT gets a nice boost, but without Amour and Django, it doesn't hold as much weight. Check back tomorrow for MPSE Winners, and continued final predictions as our countdown of one week to the Oscars begins!
