The Writers Guild of America has released its nominations for the best television programming of 2016, and among the nominees are perennial favorites as well as plenty of new series that have gotten some major attention this year.



As has been the trend in recent years from many awards groups, cable and streaming programming dominated the WGA's slate of nominees, with only one broadcast show breaking into the guild's major categories. NBC's "This Is Us," a buzzy hit for the network, was the lucky selection, earning citations for Best Drama Series, Best New Series, and best writing for a single episode ("The Trip").



"Stranger Things," "Westworld," and "Atlanta" were three of the other biggest successes among the WGA's nominees, with each doubling up on nods in the best series and best new series categories. "Atlanta" also scored a nomination for writing for an individual episode ("Streets on Lock").



The complete list of nominees for television and new media is below. The Writers Guild Awards will be handed out at a ceremony on February 19, 2017.
