One Fish, Two Fish, Blow­fish, Blue Fish (1991) — The Simpsons

Homer The Father,” writ­ten by Joel H. Cohen, won a Writ­ers Guild Award in the Ani­ma­tion cat­e­gory Sun­day, defeat­ing — among oth­ers — three other episodes of Fox’s The Simp­sons.

Homer The Father tri­umphed over “Bart Stops to Smell the Roo­sevelts,” writ­ten by Tim Long; The Blue and the Gray, writ­ten by Rob LaZeb­nik; and Don­nie Fatso, writ­ten by Chris Cluess.

Also nom­i­nated in the Ani­ma­tion cat­e­gory were the Ben 10: Ulti­mate Alien episode “Moon­struck,” writ­ten by Len Uhley, and the Futu­rama episode The Silence Of The Clamps, writ­ten by Eric Rogers.

In the cat­e­gory of Tele­vi­sion Graphic Ani­ma­tion, the win­ner — and sole nom­i­nee — was “CBS News Ani­ma­tions” (CBS News), Graphic Ani­ma­tion by David Rosen.

For Orig­i­nal Screen­play, the win­ner was Mid­night in Paris, writ­ten by Woody Allen. The Descen­dants, with screen­play by Alexan­der Payne, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, won for Adapted Screen­play; it was based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings.

Bet­ter This World, writ­ten by Katie Gal­loway and Kelly Duane de la Vega, won for Doc­u­men­tary Screenplay.

Pre­sented by the Writ­ers Guild of Amer­ica, the Writ­ers Guild Awards were held at simul­ta­ne­ous cer­e­monies at the Hol­ly­wood Pal­la­dium in Los Ange­les and at B.B. King Blues Club in New York City.
