It's Over: In Time for Oscars, Writers Vote to End Strike

It's official: The 100-day-long strike that wreaked havoc on award season and other Los Angeles events is over.

Writers Guild of America members voted overwhelmingly to end the walkout yesterday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The trade reported that 3,775 writers turned out in L.A. and New York to cast ballots or fax in proxies, with most voting in favor of ending the strike.

Organizers for the Oscars, less than two weeks away, will now begin their scramble to assemble the telecast. Under normal circumstances, work on the script would have begun last month.
