Moonlight
Barry Jenkins' drama Moonlight beat the likes of Manchester by the Sea and La La Land for best original screenplay at the Writers Guild Awards 2017 A24 / Plan B Entertainment

Barry Jenkins' drama Moonlight and Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi Arrival won big in the film categories at The 2017 Writers Guild Awards on Sunday 19 February at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles and New York's Edison Hall simultaneously. Hosted by comedians Patton Oswalt and Lewis Black respectively, the ceremonies saw Donald Glover's Atlanta took home best new television series.

Moonlight bagged the award for original screenplay, ahead of Hell Or High Water, Manchester By The Sea (which recently won a Bafta in the same category), Loving and Oscar favourite La La Land. Arrival – based on the short story Story Of Your Life by Ted Chiang – took home best adapted screenplay, triumphing over Nocturnal Animals, Fences, Hidden Figures and superhero outing Deadpool.

Other TV titles that walked away victorious on the night included The Americans (somewhat surprisingly beating Stranger Things, Game Of Thrones and Westworld), Fear The Walking Dead, Saturday Night Live and American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. Netflix's BoJack Horseman and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt also won accolades for best animated episode and best comedy episode respectively.
