Gosford Park, the gay-inclusive murder mystery, and A Beautiful Mind, the biopic that mysteriously excluded its source material's gay content, were the top winners at this weekend's Writers Guild of America awards presentation. Variety quotes Gosford Park author Julian Fellowes as observing, "What I feel is that I was standing in a farmyard in Kansas two years ago and a tornado came and blew me to the land of Oz." Mind scribe Akiva Goldsman said that his goal in adapting Sylvia Nasar's biography of John Forbes Nash Jr. was to bring about a better understanding of schizophrenia.
In other awards news over the weekend, the Producers Guild of America named Moulin Rouge best picture, a surprise to most as either A Beautiful Mind or The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring had been expected to take the prize. The gay-inclusive Sex and the City was named best episodic comedy.
