There will be no WGA Awards show until the strike is resolved. So said a brief statement issued by the WGA West on Thursday, only hours after the WGA’s feature film award nominations were announced (the television nominations were previously announced in December). The winners of the WGA awards will be announced on February 4 as planned, but there will be no accompanying ceremony and fanfare unless, by some miracle, the strike has ended by then.
According to Variety, the WGA East has not yet decided whether it will proceed with its awards event, which has been set for the Hudson Theater at the Broadway Millenium Hotel in Gotham. “We are exploring our options and we will let you know when we have made a decision,” said WGA East rep Sherry Goldman.
