'Mad Men,' 'Modern Family' pick up WGA Awards
Mad Men and Modern Family were big winners at the Writers Guild of America Awards tonight — the two series picked up trophies for Drama and Comedy Series categories, respectively. Mad Men also picked up an award for its “The Chrysanthemum and the Sword” episode. (No doubt this acclaim only reminds Mad Men fans how relieved we are that a season 5 will air on AMC.) 30 Rock won in the TV Episodic Comedy category with “When It Rains, It Pours.”
HBO’s Boardwalk Empire can toast to winning the WGA Award for New Series, while the network also found luck with The Pacific, which won for Long-Form Adaptation, and The Special Relationship, which won for Long-Form Original. Other winners include the writers for The Colbert Report (Comedy/Variety Series) and As the World Turns (Daytime Serial). Click here to see who won in the movies categories.
