The Golden Globes aren’t the only awards body giving TV shows their shine today. On Thursday afternoon, the Writers Guild of America released the nominees for all its TV honors. Drama heavyweights like The Americans and last year’s WGA winner The Handmaid’s Tale (largely left out of this morning’s Globes noms) appear in contention, along with HBO newbie Succession. On the comedy side, Atlanta, GLOW, Barry, The Good Place, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will compete. Winners will be honored at the 2019 Writers Guild Awards on Sunday, February 17.
