The winners of the 32nd Annual Gotham Awards will be unveiled at a ceremony at Cipriani Wall Street on Monday, November 28.

Earning five new nominations only adds to the growing list for Apple TV+. Back in 2021, Academy Award winning CODA earned two Gotham Awards wins. This includes Emilia Jones winning Breakthrough Performer, as well as Troy Kotsur winning Outstanding Supporting Performance.

So far, Apple TV+ has 280 wins across 1,184 nominations.

Bringing Home the Gold

For Severance, this win follows a series of wins for the series. In addition to winning several Emmy Awards, both Severance and Ted Lasso recently won a host of awards at the Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards. For Severance, the series took home wins for Best Drama, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Writing and Best Directing.

Back in April, Adam Scott also won a Webby Award for Best Actor in thanks to his role in Severance. Concerning Pachinko, the series has seen several nominations and wins, and did rather well at the 2022 Gold Derby TV Awards.

Total nominations for the Gotham Awards include:

  • Causeway: Outstanding Support Performance — Brian Tyree Henry
  • Pachinko: Breakthrough Series — Long Format (Over 40 minutes), Outstanding Performance in a New Series — Minha Kim
  • Severance: Breakthrough Series — Long Format (Over 40 minutes), Outstanding Performance in a New Series — Britt Lower

With season 2 of Severance hopefully arriving next year, it may be out in time to start seeing some nominations in 2023. Additionally, in terms of films, Emancipation is sure to deliver some big wins for the streaming service, and Causeway is likely to bring in more wins for Apple as well. Considering the film did well at both the Toronto International Film Festival as well as the BFI London Film Festival, the film may even find itself in Oscar territory alongside CODA.

Although there has been little news about it, Apple’s new documentary looking to focus on the legendary ‘haenyeo’ of South Korea is sure to deliver some wins as well. Though, it may be awhile until audiences get to see this documentary.
