Writers Guild Awards: Andor, Severance, Yellowjackets, Abbott Elementary and The Bear Among First-Time Nominees

TV Deaths 2022: Maarva, Andor

Nominees have been announced for the 75th annual Writers Guild Awards, to be held on Sunday, March 5 in concurrent ceremonies at the Edison Ballroom in New York and Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

In addition to usual suspects like Better Call Saul, The Crown, Hacks and Barry, this year’s nominees include first-time contenders such as Andor, Severance, Yellowjackets, Abbott Elementary and The Bear.

This year’s WGA Awards come amid rumblings of the guild’s first possible strike action since 2007-08. With its current contract expiring on May 1, the WGA is angling to secure increased streaming residuals as well as higher minimum pay rates for its members.
