WGA East To Honor 2008 WGA Award Nominees

As we enter the head into the thick of the twelfth week of the writers strike, the WGA East announced today that it is holding an informal reception for the nominees and recipients of the 2008 WGA Awards at the Hudson Theatre at the Millennium Broadway Hotel on Saturday, February 9th. ”We have chosen to honor the nominees and recipients of our awards in the context of our ongoing strike against the studios and networks,” said Michael Winship, president of the Writers Guild of America, East, in a statement. ”This will be a simple event that will rally us together as a union, note the solidarity of our membership in difficult times and recognize the creativity and skill of our members that make our industry possible.”
