Static Shock Writers Nab Hollywood Award
By Brian Jacks
Eleven winning writers, representing a diverse slate of work, were announced this week at the HUMANITAS Prize luncheon before an audience of over 340 members of the motion picture and television industries, held at the Hilton Universal Hotel. These prestigious prizes and $105,000 were awarded in eight categories for film and television writers whose work "entertains and enriches the viewing public."
In the Children's Animation Category, Dwayne McDuffie (teleplay & story) and Alan Burnett (story) took home the $10,000 prize for their Static Shock episode, "Jimmy."
