This is the fifteenth 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 Directing in a Comedy Series

Last year’s nominees: Episode 1 (The End of the F***ing World), Dance Dance Resolution (The Good Place), The Expo (Loaded), Pilot (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), The Most Popular Boy (Vice Principals)

Emmy nominees: The Audition (Barry), ronny/lily (Barry), The Stockholm Syndrome (The Big Bang Theory), Episode 1 (Fleabag), All Alone (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), We’re Going to the Catskills! (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)

Finalists: None

The nominees:

Episode 1 (Fleabag)
Finale (Casual)
Midnight at the Concord (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)
Episode 6 (Fleabag)

The winner:

Ne Me Quitte Pas (Ramy) felt like a magical dream, zooming out from its protagonist’s worldview to show a distinctly different and extremely worthwhile perspective.
