The Prisoner of Benda from Ken Keeler won an WGA AwardFirst award of the night and of the Year 2011. Futurama has his first Writers Guild of America award thanks to Ken Keeler and the episode he wrote, "The Prisoner of Benda", in the category of Animation - Any Length - One Airing Time.

Futurama had a double chance to win this award because Patric M. Verrone was also nominated in the same category with his episode "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences". Both episodes are from the last Futurama season, but in the end, Ken's episode was superior in my opinion.

Futurama's rival were The Simpsons (also with 2 nominations) and Back at the Barnyard, here is the full list of nominated episodes, the winner in bold text:
  • "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences" (Futurama), Written by Patric M. Verrone; Comedy Central
  • "Moe Letter Blues" (The Simpsons), Written by Stephanie Gillis; Fox
  • "O Brother, Where Bart Thou?" (The Simpsons), Written by Matt Selman; Fox
  • "The Prisoner of Benda" (Futurama), Written by Ken Keeler; Comedy Central
  • "Treasure Hunt" (Back at the Barnyard), Written by Tom Sheppard; Nickelodeon
Congrats to Ken Keleer! That show us that we only have to solve a math theorem and use it in an awesome show to win that award =D

Later tonight, Futurama can also won 2 Annie Awards! Check @slurmed for live info about it.
