W.G.A. Will Write For Grammys

The Writers Guild of America showed mercy on Grammy Awards producers by approving an interim agreement that would allow striking scribes to write a script for the ceremony, which takes place on Feb. 10. Last week, the WGA announced that they would not picket the awards show, which would allow the stars to strut the red carpet in peace. Patric M. Verrone, president of the Writers Guild of America West, acknowledged the music unions in a statement Monday and added, “Professional musicians face many of the same issues that we do concerning fair compensation for the use of their work in new media,” according to the New York Times.
