AFT Awards: Best Writing for a Drama Series

This is the fourteenth category of the 12th Annual AFT Television Awards, my personal choices for the best in television during the 2017-2018 season. This year, I’m including a shorter list, with just nominees and a few finalists, if applicable. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them.

Best Writing for a Drama Series

Last year’s nominees: What If… (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Offred (The Handmaid’s Tale), Chapter 1 (Legion), Pilot (Sneaky Pete), Trompe L’Oeil (Westworld)

Emmy nominees: START (The Americans), Mystery Man (The Crown), The Dragon and the Wolf (Game of Thrones), June (The Handmaid’s Tale), Nice Face (Killing Eve), Chapter Nine: The Gate (Stranger Things)

Finalists: None

The nominees:
The Crossing (Counterpart)
Pilot (Good Girls)
The Sincerest Form of Flattery (Counterpart)
Beyond the Wall (Game of Thrones)

The winner:

Smart Power (The Handmaid’s Tale) boldly and compellingly envisioned what this horrific new world might look like to outsiders free to comment but hopeless to ultimately effect true change within it.
