The nominees for the Writers' Guild Of Great Britain (WGGB) 2017 awards have been announced.
The results will be announced at a ceremony on Monday 23rd January 2017 at the Royal College of Physicians in central London. Host Meera Syal (pictured) says: "Someone once said, probably a writer, that the writer is the only true originator of a script, everyone else that follows is merely an interpreter. Whilst the directors and producers slug it out, let's at least agree that whilst everyone can have a great idea, it takes a great writer to bring it to life. And I'm very honoured to be hosting the WGGB Awards where we can come together to celebrate our extraordinary community of writing talent."
