WGA Awards: 2022 Nominations List — Writers Guild of America

Nominations for the 2022 Writers Guild Awards were announced on Thursday, and quite a few members of TV’s freshman class – including Disney+ Loki, Showtime yellow jackets and Hulu’s Only murders in the building – ended up on this year’s list.

HBO Max hacks and FX Booking Dogs were also among the rookies to earn multiple nods, while veterans like Succession and The Handmaid’s Tale – both nominated in previous years – are once again in the running.

The 2022 winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held on Sunday, March 20. Scroll down for the full list of TV nominees, then weigh in below with your thoughts!
