The Writers Guild East has announced a tribute to writer-director Nora Ephron (1941-2012), to be presented at the guild's East Coast awards ceremony on February 17. The nominees are here.
The tribute will be led by author Meg Wolitzer, whose novel "This Is My Life" was adapted and directed by Ephron in 1992. Wolitzer will speak and show a video clip presentation.
During Ephron's nearly four-decade career in the film industry, she penned or co-penned (often with sister Delia) 14 produced screenplays, and directed eight films. She was nominated for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar three times -- in 1984, 1990 and 1993 -- for, respectively, "Silkwood," "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sleepless in Seattle."
Our TOH! obit to Ephron is here.
The Writers Guild Awards' West coast ceremony (East and West happen simultanously) will be broadcast live here on February 17; Nathan Fillion will host. Anne Thompson will be reporting live from the event on Twitter: @akstanwyck.
