Slumdog Millionaire wins again, this time at WGAs

The Writers Guild Awards

Oscar favourite Slumdog Millionaire has taken another award, this time at the Writers Guild Awards handed out last night.  These awards are exclusively for the writers, and the film won for the best adapted screenplay by Simon Beaufoy.  For those didn’t know, Slumdog Millionaire is based on the novel “Q and A” by Vikas Swarup  (but there are some significant differences between the book and film).

 The other film winners were Dustin Lance Black for his best original screenplay for Milk and Ari Folman for best documentary screenplay for Waltz with Bashir.

For the full list of winners (including TV and radio), see here.

PS: I didn’t know they handed out writing awards for video games too – the winner this year was for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
