‘Severance,’ ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ Win Big at WGA Awards: Full Winners List

“Severance,” “Everything Everywhere All at Once” and “Women Talking” took home top prizes at the Writers Guild of America Awards, Hollywood’s final awards ceremony before next week’s 95th Oscars.

The WGAs were not televised but rather held at concurrent ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York City. “Abbott Elementary” star Janelle James hosted the West Coast edition, while comedian Michelle Buteau (“First Wives Club,” “The Circle”) led the New York festivities.

A bellwether for the Academy Awards, the WGAs often foreshadow the Oscar winners for original and adapted screenplay. Daniels’ “Everything Everywhere All at Once” maintained its frontrunner status and picked up yet another major Guild award after winning top prizes from the Directors Guild, Producers Guild and Screen Actors Guild. Sarah Polley’s “Women Talking” won the WGA Award for adapted screenplay.

On the television side, “Severance” won for both drama series and new series, “The Bear” won for comedy series and “The White Lotus” won for limited series.
