From William Gallagher's "'Severance' and 'Ted Lasso' clean up at the Hollywood Critics awards" posted Monday:
Having received a record number of nominations at the Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards, Apple TV+ took home seven wins, including Best Drama and Best Comedy.
Apple TV+ earned a record 53 nominations in the awards, and was presented with 7 wins at the ceremony at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on Sunday, August .
"Apple TV+ today was recognized as the most-winning streaming service by the Hollywood Critics Association Streaming TV Awards," announced Apple, "scoring seven wins including Best Drama 'Severance' and Best Comedy 'Ted Lasso.'"
The wins were:
- Best Streaming Series, Drama: Severance
- Best Actress in a Streaming Series, Drama: Britt Lower for Severance
- Best Supporting Actor in a Streaming Series, Drama: John Turturro for Severance
- Best Writing in a Streaming Series, Drama: Dan Erikson for Severance: The Way We Are
- Best Directing in a Streaming Series, Drama: Ben Stiller for Severance: The Way We Are
- Best Streaming Series, Comedy: Ted Lasso
- Best Supporting Actor in a Streaming Series, Comedy: Brett Goldstein for Ted Lasso
The best comedy award for "Ted Lasso" makes it what Apple describes as "the only back-to-back HCA TV Award win across all platforms." It was also a second consecutive win for Goldstein.
My take: Spent a bachelor weekend binging Black Bird, figuring my wife wouldn't go for it. Not a prize-winner, but a strong 6-part series.
