Writers Guild Awards' biggest winners are...

There's been yet another boost for Jordan Peele's comedy thriller 'Get Out' as it just picked up the best original screenplay trophy at the Writer's Guild of America, West and East. Both trophies handed out at simultaneous ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York.

The Writers Guild of America, East and the Writers Guild of America, West united way back in 1949 to found The Writers Guild of America Awards.

The WGA was not broadcasted on television, until 2004, and today it is one of the biggest movie awards shows, besides Golden Globes awards and Oscars.

Also, the WGA are awarded to the video game developers, and that part of the awards has been added in 2008.

This year's WGA awards has been dominated by two movies: Call Me by Your Name (2017) and Get Out (2017).

Both films are exploring very serious subjects of sexual and racial diversity and tolerance.

Call My by Your Name (2017) is romance/drama set in Northern Italy in 1983, and the story follows a seventeen year-old Elio who begins a relationship with Visiting Oliver, his father's research assistant, with whom he bonds over his emerging sexuality, their Jewish heritage and the beguiling Italian landscape.

Get Out (2017) is a horror/mystery about a young African-American who meets with his white girlfriend's parents for a weekend in their secluded estate in the woods, but before long, the friendly and polite ambience will give way to a nightmare.
