AFT Awards: Best Writing for a Limited Series or TV Movie

This is the twenty-second category of the 14th Annual AFT Television Awards, my personal choices for the best in television during the 2019-2020 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 Limited Series or TV Movie
Last year’s nominees: I’m excited to introduce this category for the first time this year after watching more limited series than ever in my life.

Emmy nominees: Shirley (Mrs. America), Episode 3 (Normal People), Episode 1 (Unbelievable), Part 1 (Unorthodox), This Extraordinary Being (Watchmen)

Finalists: Simone (Dispatches from Elsewhere), Part 1 (Unorthodox), Episode 8 (Normal People), Fredwynn (Dispatches from Elsewhere), Chapter 1: Out of the Depth, I Cry to You (Our Boys), 1995 (The Loudest Voice), Hooray for Hollywood: Part 1 (Hollywood), This Extraordinary Being (Watchmen), Little Fear of Lightning (Watchmen), Episode 12 (Normal People), Episode 11 (Normal People), Part 2 (Unorthodox), Part 3 (Unorthodox), Part 4 (Unorthodox), Episode 3 (Unbelievable)

The nominees:

Episode 2 (Normal People)
It's Summer and We're Running Out of Ice (Watchmen)
Peter (Dispatches from Elsewhere)
Jill (Mrs. America)

The winner:

A God Walks into Abar (Watchmen) is headache-inducing to consider thanks to the complexity of its concepts, but the way in which its content unfolds is gripping and captivating.
