With three weeks until the Oscars, awards season is still in full swing. Four different awards ceremonies took place this past weekend, with winners including some top Oscar contenders, such as The Social Network and The King's Speech, a few beloved actors and one talking cartoon sponge. There was even a scandal over some dragons stealing awards from Toy Story 3. Read on for the highlights!
The Writers Guild of America Awards
The Daily Show's Kristen Schaal hosted this major awards ceremony honoring excellence in screenwriting. Top prizes went to Inception for best original screenplay and The Social Network for best adapted screenplay. Both films are also up for Academy Awards in these respective categories. In the television categories, the big awards went to Mad Men (best TV drama), Modern Family (best TV comedy) and Boardwalk Empire (best new series).
The Annie Awards
The 37th annual Annies honored the best animated movies and TV shows of the year -- except for the critically acclaimed Toy Story 3, which won nothing. Huh? Apparently, there's some kind of feud between the Pixar folks and the people who run the Annie Awards. So Toy Story 3 was shut out, with all the major awards going instead to the DreamWorks film How to Train Your Dragon. Both movies are nominated for the best animated feature film Oscar, while Toy Story 3 is also nominated for best picture. Oh, and Spongebob Squarepants won for best animated television production for children.
The Art Directors Guild Awards
These awards honor excellence in production design, i.e. the prettiest movies of the year. The winners -- The King's Speech, Inception and Black Swan -- are all best picture Oscar nominees.
The Golden Camera Award
This annual German award honors the best international actors -- most of whom, it seems, have been Americans. This year, the ceremony in Berlin honored Renee Zellweger and John Travolta as the best international actress and actor, respectively. Michael J. Fox was also awarded the Golden Camera for lifetime achievement.
