Midnight in Paris, Descendants win WGA honors
With his biggest hit in decades, writer-director Allen earned the guild's prize Sunday for original screenplay on Midnight in Paris. The film stars Owen Wilson as a modern Hollywood writer who gets a chance to hang with his literary idols in the 1920s Paris of Hemingway and Fitzgerald.
Director Payne shared the adapted screenplay honor with co-writers Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (who some television fans might know better as Dean Pelton on "Community"). Based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, The Descendants stars George Clooney as a Hawaiian dad struggling to tend to his two daughters after a boating accident puts his wife in a coma.
