"Milk" Screenwriter to be Honored by the Writers Guild of America 


Dustin Lance Black, who worked hard in his quest to bring Harvey Milk's life to the big screen is being honored by the Writers Guild of America West.

Black, who's nominated for the WGA award for original screenplay is going to receive the Paul Selvin Award.

The Selvin Award is given to writers whose works examine civil rights issues.

"Milk" is a fitting tribute to Harvey Milk, a gay rights pioneer!

WGA West president Patric Verrone revealed to Variety:

“Lance Black's script reminds us that all it takes is a single spark to light the fuse of an entire movement.”


The WGA awards will be this Saturday at the Century Plaza hotel. Congratulations Mister Dustin!
