To the surprise of absolutely no one, The Hurt Locker and Up in the Air won the Writers Guild of America Awards for Best Original Screenplay and Best Adapted Screenplay, respectively, tonight in Los Angeles. Since Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds script was ineligible for the original-screenplay prize, Mark Boal’s work on The Hurt Locker had a clear path to victory. Meanwhile, Jason Reitman and Sheldon Turner’s Up in the Air screenplay has been the clear favorite in the adapted race all season long. My west coast colleague Lynette Rice was at the ceremony; click over to see her Writers Guild Awards on-the-scene report.
