The screenplay of "Crash", written by Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco, won Humanitas Prize for its call to reach out with respect and compassion.

Keeps being the subject of accolades even after its triumph at this year's Academy Awards, "Crash" indeed still makes big sound in public when its screenplay won the Humanitas Prize as announced by the organization on Wednesday, 28 June, and so adding another honor to the film's screenwriters, Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco. For their impressive work, the two were granted $25,000 from $145,000 prize money shared with other nine winning writers at a luncheon at the Hilton Universal Hotel.

Considered to be one of the works that helps "liberate, enrich and unify society", "Crash" screenplay has been recognized by the event's judges to be able to "reach out with respect and compassion to all of our brothers and sisters." The film itself focuses on the intertwining stories of an array of diverse characters over 36 hours in Los Angeles.

In the same occasion, the organization also pays tribute to documentary work, giving a special award to "An Inconvenient Truth", a feature presenting Al Gore's quest to make people aware of global warming threats.
