WGA issues strike waiver on Spirit Awards


The Writers Guild of America said that its members will be allowed to work for the Spirit Awards honoring independent film despite uncertainties surrounding other awards shows because of the Hollywood writers strike. The guild said in a statement its members may work for the Spirit Awards because the show’s producers asked for permission before the strike began.  The Spirit Awards will be presented 2/23, the day before the Academy Awards.
