WGA honors Larry David

'Curb' star to receive Paddy Chayefsky Laurel award

The Writers Guild of America has tapped Larry David to receive its Paddy Chayefsky Laurel award for television.

David will be presented the kudo at the WGA West’s awards ceremonies at the Century Plaza. Past recipients include David Chase, Stephen J. Cannell, Susan Harris, William Blinn and current WGA West president John Wells.

“For a writer who’s made a career out of creating hit television shows about ‘nothing,’ Larry David is really something among writers,” Wells said.

David has won two WGA awards for “Seinfeld” and another for “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which recently completed its seventh season.
