Where credit is due for scribe tribe

Nathan Fillion hosted WGA Awards

The WGA Awards show changed things by moving to L.A. Live, but offered the usual hearts and flowers from the scribe tribe.

Steven Spielberg set the tone Sunday with the presentation of the Paul Selvin Award to “Lincoln” screenwriter Tony Kushner. “His love for the great American experiment is unlike I’ve ever seen,” the director said. “I believe Tony got to know Lincoln in a profound way.” Kushner called Spielberg a “monumental mensch.”

Host Nathan Fillion of “Castle” began his emcee duties by saying he’s been a two-time People’s Choice winner and an eight-time Comic-Con panelist. “As an actor, I play a valuable role in the process,” he said. “I take your work out into the world where I take credit for it.”

Brad Garrett presented Phil Rosenthal with the Valentine Davies Award and wondered why Rosenthal needed more recognition, asking, “Did he finally syndicate in Yemen?”

Rosenthal replied by calling Garrett “my favorite oversized Hebrew.”
