WGA nominates 7 for New Media Writing Awards

Winners to be announced Feb. 5 in LA and NYC

The Writers Guild of America has announced seven nominations for its inaugural New Media Writing Awards. Winners will be announced at the Writers Guild Awards on Feb. 5 at simultaneous ceremonies in New York and Los Angeles.

There were five nominations in original writing:

n “Anyone but Me” for episodes “The Real Thing,” “Identity Crisis,” “Girl Talk,” “Naming Things,” “Curtain Up.” Story by Susan Miller, Tina Cesa Ward; written by Miller, Ward; AnyoneButMeSeries.com

n “All’s Faire” for “Episode 1,” “Episode 4,” Episode 5,” Episode 6,” “Episode 7.” Written by Thom Woodley; Allsfaire.tv

n “Concierge: The Series” for “Episode 1: We’ve Got Flash,” “Episode 2: Complimentary Sandwiches,” “Episode 3: Perfect Resume Builder.” Written by Timothy Cooper; ConciergeTheSeries.com

n “The Five Faces Project” for “The Shadow.” Written by Michael A. Nixon; Superunofficial.com

n “Madison Avery” for “Zac.” Written by Gregory Storm; Stormfactory.com

Nominees for writing for derivative new media were the first three webisodes of “The 3rd Floor, the Office,” written by Kelly Hannon, Jonathan Hughes, Mary Wall for NBC.com; and two Web exclus from “30 Rock” — “Frank vs. Lutz: Strip Pong” and “Frank vs. Lutz: Tear Jerks” — written by Jon Haller for NBC.com.

The WGA announced the creation of the awards in October and said the new-media writing would have to be performed under a guild contract, a condition required for most other WGA awards.

New-media jurisdiction and compensation were the signature issues of the WGA strike in 2007-08 as the final deal spelled out details to a far greater extent than in previous master contracts.
