Regretfully we have to postpone our first Screen Times Awards by one week. The Omicron variant has reared it’s head & health must come first. We have a fun ceremony planned over @screentimesnet to celebrate the last year of Apple TV & you won’t want to miss it.

See you Sunday 16th and don't forget to vote below!

We're excited to announce the very first Screen Times Awards, celebrating an incredible year for Apple TV, tvOS and Apple Originals. The last twelve months have continued to showcase stories never told before, a new generation of storytellers and new innovations that allow us to share in those stories, connecting together, wherever we may be. 

Screen Times writing staff will honour all aspects of Apple TV on January 16th through a number of categories focusing on all aspects of the Apple TV story from Best New tvOS Feature and Apple TV app of the Year to Outstanding Original Film and Outstanding Debuting Original Series. 

Screen Times readers will have their chance to cast their votes in two of our most important honours with voting now open for 'Favourite Apple Original Production' and 'Best Newcomer.’ 

The first of those two categories ‘Favourite Apple Original Production’ is open to all Apple Originals from the world of TV and film released this calendar year, whilst the ‘Best Newcomer’ category celebrates a new generation of exceptional storytellers from a select shortlist of nominees that include: Enrique Arrizon (Acapulco), Billy Barratt (Invasion), Elodie Blomfield (Ted Lasso), India Brown (Invasion), Fernando Carsa (Acapulco), Isaiah Hill (Swagger), Emilia Jones (CODA), Lou Llobell (Foundation), Kiki May (Ted Lasso), Logan Polish (The Mosquito Coast) and Kylie Rogers (Home Before Dark).

Screen Times Awards Special Honouree: Matt Dentler 

Having spent years trawling festivals, discovering films and cultivating filmmakers - whilst having a great time showing their work - the former SXSW Film Festival producer would grin from ear-to-ear as the ripples of applause moved throughout the many screening rooms of his hometown. That appreciation for his talent to uncover these filmic gems continues as he’s soon to celebrate his first decade at Apple. Now Apple Original Films’ Head of Features, he has curated a library that continues to shine brightest, with the likes of ‘CODA,’ ‘Finch,’ ‘Swan Song’ and ‘The Tragedy of Macbeth’ reaching a global audience of millions in 2021.

His infectious enthusiasm, quick thinking and ability to help upcoming and established talents make him a beloved figure for both film-makers and films-lovers alike. The perfect first recipient of our special honour.

Voting for our public votes closes at 00:01 PT on Friday, January 7th. Please join us for a live stream on January 16th at 11am PT where winners will be announced (further details to follow in the coming days). See below to register your vote and view the complete list of categories.
