Argo continued its triumphant awards run at the Writers Guild of America Awards last night, scoring Best Adapted Screenplay for writer Chris Terrio. The gong is just one more indication that it’s a strong contender for a similar prize at next weekend’s Oscars.
Another big prizewinner, Zero Dark Thirty’s Mark Boal, took home Best Original Screenplay for his work on the story of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden. And in a popular documentary win, Searching For Sugar Man’s Malik Bendejelloul snagged a trophy for his script.
Over on the TV front, Breaking Bad won for Drama Series, while Louie took Comedy Series. New Series went to Girls and the separate episode awards went to Mad Men’s The Other Woman and Modern Family’s Virgin Territory.
