WGA Awards: ‘Parasite’ and ‘Jojo Rabbit’ Among Film Winners

On the television side, ‘Succession’ won for drama series, while ‘Barry’ was honored in the comedy series category.

Due to the BAFTA Awards taking place just hours later in London, two of the biggest awards were handed out at the start of the evening, original and adapted screenplay, so that the nominees in those categories on hand at the New York ceremony could head to the airport. Original screenplay went to Parasite, beating out 1917, Booksmart, Knives Out and Marriage Story, and Jojo Rabbit won adapted screenplay over A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, The Irishman, Joker and Little Women. Parasite’s Bong Joon Ho and Jojo Rabbit’s Taika Waititi were both at the New York ceremony.
