…they were all nominated for best situation comedy by The Writers Guild of Great Britain

The shortlists for the 29th Writers’ Guild Awards,  have been announced. The awards will be presented on Monday 14 February 2022 at the Royal College of Physicians in central London.

WGGB President Sandi Toksvig said: “What a fitting day to celebrate the cream of British writers – who have kept us entertained on page, stage, screen and across the airwaves, through such dark times.

“Our creative industries play such an important role, as do all those who work within them, and we hope our awards ceremony on Valentine’s Day will send this message – you matter, we care, and thank you for your words, which have lifted us all up over these past two years.”
