The Apple TV+ hit workplace thriller “Severance” could be its next big award winner after the likes of CODA or Ted Lasso. The star of the series, Adam Scott, was recently honored with the Webby Best Actor award for his performance in the series.

Severance follows employees of a mysterious company called Lumon industries which requires them to undergo a severance procedure that surgically separates their memories between their work and personal lives.
Writer Dan Erickson created something incredibly magnetic with the disturbing workplace drama and it has proved to be a huge draw for Apple TV+. At the 26th Annual Webby Awards, Severance gained its first award with Adam Scott being honored for his “incredible work” in the series.
“Scott strikes multi-dimensional chords with the audience,” says the official Webby site, “his performance is incredible, it leaves the audience questioning at every turn of the show.”
“The audience is gripped the whole way along and Adam’s performance is why,” it continues. “For bringing his talents to the streaming screen in Severance, it is our pleasure to honor Adam Scott at the 2022 Webby Best Actor.”
Severance was renewed earlier this month ahead of its season one finale. For $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial, Apple’s streaming service is available on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Apple TV via the Apple TV app.
