Apple has been recognized by the American Film Institute (AFI) with top honors for the Emmy Award-winning “Severance” and Gotham Award-winning “Pachinko” on their annual list of the 10 best television programs of the year.

These mark Apple’s most recent recognition from AFI following a nod for Academy Award-nominated film “Wolfwalkers” with an Audience Award for Narrative Feature, and AFI Television Programs of the Year honor for Emmy Award-winning comedy “Ted Lasso” in 2020. “Ted Lasso” and Emmy Award-winning comedy “Schmigadoon!” landed Television Programs of the Year honors in 2021 alongside AFI Movies of the Year honors for Academy Award-nominated feature “The Tragedy of Macbeth” and Academy Award winner “CODA.”

AFI Awards celebrates film and television arts’ collaborative nature and is the only national program that honors creative teams as a whole, recognizing those in front of and behind the camera. Honorees will gather on Friday, January 13, 2023 for recognition at the annual AFI Awards private luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills.

“Severance” and the recently renewed “Pachinko” are currently streaming on Apple TV+.
