Although the Writers Guild of America West was planning their awards ceremony on Saturday, February 9, 2008 at the Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles, California, Soaps.com has just received word from a WGA representative stating…

“Until the strike is over, there is no WGA West 2008 Writers Guild Awards show in LA – there is an event/reception in NYC. Winners for 2008 WGA will still be announced on February 9, 2008 as planned.”

When we spoke to a rep from the WGA East in regards to their scheduled event/reception, they stated…

“The event is Saturday Feb. 9th at the Hudson Theatre in NYC. However, this year, in deference to the strike, we are not doing a red carpet portion, which is traditionally the only part of the evening that media was invited to cover. Therefore, we are not issuing media credentials.”

Again, Soaps.com wants to wish all the nominees the best of luck! Should we hear any more news – or a change in plans for the LA event – we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
