WGA Awards Nomination List Includes WandaVision, Loki & Mare of Easttown

With the awards season once again upon us, it’s time for writers to get their long-deserved recognition for sitting down in front of a blank sheet and coming up with hours of content that we watch and talk about during a lot of our free time. The Writers Guild of America announced today the 2022 nominees for writers across TV, New Media, News, and several other categories related to writing.

As other awards have hinted, there is a lot of love for critically acclaimed new TV series like Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building, Showtime’s Yellowjackets, Netflix’s Midnight Mass, Disney+’s Loki, and HBO’s Mare of Easttown, but veteran series like Succession, American Horror Story and Curb Your Enthusiasm also made the cut.

The New Series category gathered many of 2021’s fan-favorites such as Hacks and Reservation Dogs. On the other hand, more seasoned shows also made the list: The Handmaid’s Tale continues to tell the story of June (Elisabeth Moss) in a dystopian society ruled by religious fanatics and is still able to surprise and amuse voters – it was nominated for Drama Series and Episodic Drama, for the Season 4 episode “Testimony”. Apple TV+’s The Morning Show also scored two nominations in the same categories.

TV adaptations also have their own space: WandaVision, Netflix’s Maid and Halston, Prime Video’s The Underground Railroad, and FX's Impeachment: American Crime Story received one nomination each. NBC’s sitcom Superstore managed to get a farewell nod for its series finale episode, “All Sales Final," while Only Murders in the Building, Reservation Dogs, and ABC’s The Wonder Years scored a nomination for their very first episodes.

In the Animation TV category, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Tuca & Bertie fight for the prize, while the Comedy/Variety list also brings some old-time favorites like Conan, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and The Problem with Jon Stewart.
