The Hollywood film awards season is coming to its final stretch. Since the Golden Globes awarded films such as The Fabelmans or Elvis, there have been no end of awards where Oscar nominees are rising indistinctly, swinging the competition to one side or the other.

The most recent awards of this type were the WGA Awards. Organized by the Writers Guild of America, they choose this stage of production to reward the best scripts. And this time there has been a clear favorite film: Everything Everywhere All at Once.

What do the WGA Awards honor?

As these awards are organized by the Screenwriters Guild of the United States, the awards focus on the best scripts in each category. However, their range extends far beyond film: television, radio and digital media are also included in these awards.

Everything Everywhere All at Once, the A24 production directed by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, has been the winner of the most important category of the WGA Awards: Best Original Screenplay. This qualifies it as a favorite at the Oscars, but there is also another outstanding film: Ellas hablan (Women Talking).

In terms of series and episodes, the most outstanding have been The White Lotus (HBO Max), The Bear (Disney+) and Severance (Apple TV+). Undoubtedly, it has been a great year for series, which are slowly beginning to take away space from movies also in terms of prestige, reaching a very interesting streaming war.
