2012 Awards Season: WGAs Help The Descendants Ascend

The final major guild, the WGA, handed their awards out tonight. Due to rule differences, they are not as useful when it comes to predicting the Oscars this year as they are in some years, winning is still a good omen. So who won and what does that say about their chances?

The categories and winners are...

  • Better This World
Notes and Reactions...

  • The Artist was ruled ineligible for the WGAs, so it might still be the Oscar favorite over Midnight in Paris, which won tonight. It could be one of the closer races.
  • With its win tonight, The Descendants is becoming a wide favorite on Oscar night.
  • Better This World wasn't eligible for an Oscar, so Pina is probably the favorite for the Oscar.
