My POV

Writing Nominees, Live and In Person

?Tis the season once again. What season, you ask? Not Christmas-even better! Awards season!

That's good news, because it means normally hidden Hollywood goes public for your viewing and listening pleasure.

Specifically, you'll soon have a chance to see and hear most of the writers who are nominated for both WGA and Academy awards. The WGA and the WGA Foundation are presenting "Beyond Words," the third annual seminar for nominees. The event will be held Thursday March 6, 2003, 7:30 p.m. at the Writers Guild Theater, 135 S. Doheny Drive, Beverly Hills.

If that's not enticing enough, the moderator will be the hilarious, quippy, Oscar-nominated Owen "Shanghai Noon and Knights" Wilson.

Cost (price includes reception afterwards): $20 general public, $15 Writers Guild members and academic faculty, $10 full-time students with valid ID. Cheap at twice the price! Call 323 782 4692 to reserve your seats. I'd be shocked if it didn't sell out, so call now, operators standing around reading scripts and waiting for your call.

The event is always a bit of a mixed bag, because with schedules and quirks, you never know for sure who will be there, but in previous years, about 75% of the nominees showed up.

To read which writers are nominated for what, visit www.wga.org and click on News. Then surf to http://www.oscars.org/75academyawards/nomswins.html and scroll to the bottom, where writer noms always get stuck. But I'm not bitter about it.

And if you're not in Southern California, let me make two points: Here's one more reason why you should live here if you're going to be a screenwriter, and maybe you should consider a visit-the weather is great this time of year!

See you at the event.

Keep writing.

PS This just in-the WGA also is selling tix to its awards banquet at $125 each. Good chance to hobnob with the literati, if you so desire.
