Len Uhley (“Ben 10,” “Static Shock,” “DuckTales”) has been selected as the recipient of the Writers Guild of America West’s animation writing award.
The award will be presented Wednesday by the Animation Writers Caucus in ceremonies at the WGA West headquarters in Los Angeles. Fellow honorees Stan Berkowitz and Alan Burnett will co-present.
“Len Uhley is one of the finest choices the Animation Writers Caucus and the Guild could make for this award,” said AWC chair Craig Miller. “A talented writer with credits in both episodic and feature animation, he’s always been one of the most respected, nicest people in the industry, always willing to share his time and his advice, and a good friend to all – a truly deserving recipient of this award.”
Berkowitz noted that Uhley has shown a serious commitment to the union movement, adding, “We had to work hard to get those scripts covered by the WGA.”
As a staff writer at Disney, he wrote episodes of “DuckTales,” “Adventures of the Gummi Bears,” “Winnie the Pooh,” “Chip ‘n Dale’s Rescue Rangers” and “Darkwing Duck.”
In 2012, Uhley received a Writers Guild Award nomination for Animation for penning the “Ben 10: Ultimate Alien” episode. He’s shared five Emmy nominations for his work on “Static Shock,” “Ozzy & Drix,” “TaleSpin” and “DuckTales.”
