A very funny Wes Anderson recalled his early days living in Century City and what an appropriate place it was to accept his WGA original screenplay award tonight for The Grand Budapest Hotel. He mentioned that the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, where the awards ceremony was held, was “formerly one of the back lots of the great cinema studios. It’s now home to this wonderful Hyatt and a large community of entertainment attorneys.” Check out the video above that begins with Lawrence Kasdan presenting the award to Anderson.
