The Daniels' 'Everything Everywhere All at Once' wins for original screenplay in the movie field, while the Apple TV+ series nabs two prizes for Drama Series and New Series.

AceShowbiz - The Writers Guild of America has spoken out. The labor unions presenting writers across the country presented the awards for film, television and radio writing at the 75th Writers Guild of America Awards on Sunday night, March 5.

Among the big winners was "Everything Everywhere All at Once", which took home the prize for original screenplay in movie field. "Women Talking", meanwhile, won for adapted screenplay.

In the TV field, "Severance" led in terms of number with two prizes. The Apple TV+ sci-fi series nabbed the coveted award for drama series as well as for new series. "The Bear" won in Comedy Series category, with "The White Lotus" bagging an award for Limited Series.

"Better Call Saul" and "Hacks" also took home a trophy each, for Episodic Drama and Episodic Comedy respectively. "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver" came out as the winner in Comedy/Variety Talk Series category, while "Inside Amy Schumer" defeated other nominees for the Comedy/Variety Sketch Series prize.

The WGA Awards was not televised, but held at concurrent ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York City. "Abbott Elementary" star Janelle James hosted the West Coast edition, while comedian Michelle Buteau ("First Wives Club", "The Circle") led the New York festivities.

In her monologue, Buteau urged Steven Spielberg, who was in the audience, to make a movie about "happy black people." Spike Lee, who was also in attendance, said he'd co-direct. The actress also quipped that Dave Chappelle is the "GOAT" if that means "Going After Trans People."

James, meanwhile, skewered Hollywood for its lack of diversity. "White guys keep telling me, to my face, that we're taking all the writing jobs, that we're diversity hires," she said. "As you can see in this room tonight, they were right. There's upwards of 10 of us in here."
