WRITERS’ GUILD AWARDS 2020 WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Posted by TurtleGirl On January - 14 - 2020

Writers behind some of last year’s most critically acclaimed works were honoured at the 2020 Writers’ Guild Awards ceremony, including Danny Brocklehurst, Shola Amoo, Season Butler, Gillian Juckes and Jimmy McGovern.
 


 

The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain announced the winners for its prestigious awards across 16 categories in film, television, radio, theatre, comedy, books and videogames, at the illustrious ceremony which took place at the Royal College of Physicians in London.
 

Hosted by writer, comedian and actor Katy Brand (Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show, Comedy Lab Slap), the awards honoured the cream of British writing talent in front of an audience from a wide range of creative industries, and an array of guests including WGGB President Sandi Toksvig OBE, Samira Ahmed, Simon Beaufoy, Jonathan Harvey, Rufus Jones, Sally Lindsay, Lisa McGee, Nigel Plaskitt with Hartley Hare and Michael Spicer.
 

Comedy writer and actor John Finnemore was presented with the prestigious Outstanding Contribution to Writing award by David Tyler who has produced many of his radio comedies. Finnemore’s extensive career has seen him write multiple comedy shows for radio and television, including That Mitchell and Webb Sound, That Mitchell and Webb Look, Dead Ringers, Safety Catch, John Finnemore, Apparently, The Now Show and The Unbelievable Truth. He also co-wrote the podcast David Mitchell’s Soapbox with David Mitchell. Amongst his many credits for BBC Radio 4, Finnemore has written and performed in John Finnemore’s Souvenir Programme, as well as Cabin Pressure and Double Acts, both for which he won the Writers’ Guild Award for Best Radio Comedy in 2011 and 2017 respectively. He has also won more Comedy.co.uk Awards for writing than anyone else to date.
 

On receiving his Outstanding Contribution to Writing award, John Finnemore said ‘Receiving this award from the WGGB, and therefore from fellow writers, is deeply gratifying… and utterly astonishing. So, to whoever it is they’ve given it to me in mistake for: I’m very sorry for you, but good luck trying to get it back off me now.’
