AFT Awards: Best Comedy Series

This is the twentieth and final category of the 13th Annual AFT Television Awards, my personal choices for the best in television during the 2018-2019 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 Comedy Series

Last year’s nominees: Barry, The End of the F***ing World, The Good Place, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Santa Clarita Diet

Emmy nominees: Barry, Fleabag, The Good Place, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Russian Doll, Schitt’s Creek, Veep

Finalists: Barry, Casual, Dead to Me, Insecure, Jane the Virgin, Shameless

The nominees:

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The Good Place

The winner:

Fleabag churned thoughtful, surprising comedy out in plentiful portions with a remarkable urgency that is all too often reserved for dramas.

Next up: That’s a wrap! It’s almost Oscar time – head over to for complete coverage!
