WGA Awards: ‘Eighth Grade’ is the winner

Just a few days before the Academy Award winners are announced, another great cinematic event took place. Indeed, the WGA Awards (Writers Guild of America) were held on February 18, 2019. The surprise of the ceremony was that the team behind ‘Eighth Grade’ were rewarded with the top prize, which is for the Original Screenplay.

What is the movie about?

Directed by Bo Burnham, ‘Eighth Grade’ is a coming-of-age comedy drama starring Elsie Fisher. Struggling to make friends at school, the youngster finds her voice by posting vlogs and offering advice. The filmmaker also wrote the movie’s screenplay and was inspired by his own struggles as a teenager.
