Mike Scully to receive WGA’s Animation Writing Award

HollywoodNews.com: Veteran animation and television writer Mike Scully has been named the recipient of the Writers Guild of America, West Animation Writers Caucus’ 13th annual Animation Writing Award, recognizing his prolific career and outstanding contributions to the craft of film and television animation writing, as well as his efforts to organize animation writers on behalf of the Writers Guild.

The AWC’s lifetime achievement award will be presented to Scully tonight at the AWC’s annual awards ceremony held at WGAW headquarters in Los Angeles.

“Whether penning episodes of The Simpsons, one of the most acclaimed, influential, and long-running series in TV history, or playing a key role in organizing the field of animation writing on behalf of the Guild, Mike’s contributions to both the craft and business of animation writing make him more than deserving of this award,” commented WGAW President John Wells.

“Mike Scully, now in his 17th season on The Simpsons, has amused, entertained, and inspired not only uncounted millions around the world, but uncounted numbers of animation writers. His high quality of writing is something we all aspire to,” said AWC Chair Craig Miller.

Scully’s animation writing credits include The Simpsons and The Simpsons Movie. Scully’s live-action television writing credits include Parks and Recreation, Everybody Loves Raymond, Complete Savages, and The Pitts (the latter two series co-created with his wife, Julie Thacker-Scully).

He is currently consulting on The Simpsons while preparing to executive produce the animated series Napoleon Dynamite for Fox. He has won six Emmy Awards, sharing five for The Simpsons (Outstanding Animated Program) and one for Raymond (Outstanding Comedy Series). Scully also shared a 2009 Writers Guild Award nomination for Comedy Series for his work on The Simpsons.
