Congratulations to a group of seven Experts for a terrific score of 80% when predicting the 2018 Writers Guild Awards winners on Sunday. For these journalists who cover the entertainment industry throughout the year, the tie was between Erik Davis (Fandango), Edward Douglas, Joyce Eng (Gold Derby), Pete Hammond (Deadline), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Anne Thompson (Indiewire) and Peter Travers (Rolling Stone).
Over 1,300 people worldwide predicted these WGA winners in three film and seven television categories. The awards ceremony was held on February 11 in New York City (hosted by Amber Ruffin) and in Beverly Hills (hosted by Patton Oswalt). Those three film awards were won by Jordan Peele for “Get Out” (original screenplay), James Ivory for “Call Me By Your Name” (adapted screenplay”) and “Jane” (documentary screenplay).
