Awards handed out to NZ scriptwriters

The writer behind The Jaquie Brown Diaries has added another award to his collection this year, winning Best Television Comedy Script at last night’s New Zealand Scriptwriters Awards.

Gerard Johnstone picked up two awards for the TV3 comedy series earlier this year at the Qantas Film and Television Awards.

TVNZ’s Bloodlines has also been honoured at the industry awards last night, taking out the prize for Best Television Drama Script for writers Donna Malane and Paula Boock.

Bloodlines, which screened earlier in the year, centred on the real life story of psychiatrist Dr Colin Bouwer who poisoned his wife.

Film awards were also handed out, with Briar Grace-Smith edging out Taika Waititi in the Best Feature Film Script category for her film The Strength of Water.
