GOSFORD, MIND win WGA awards

Julian Fellowes won the WGA award for original screenplay with his upstairs, downstairs social comedy GOSFORD PARK. Akiva Goldsman, on his way to winning an Oscar, picked up the award for adapted screenplay.

Not surprisingly, the TV awards went to an episode of THE SOPRANOS (Pine Barrens, written by Tim Van Patten) and EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND (Italy, Parts 1 & 2, written by Phil Rosenthal).
