Best Comedy Series 2023

Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi’s groundbreaking series Reservation Dogs has been in the running for the Best Comedy Series Golden Tomato for both of its stellar first two seasons, but it was its third and final outing that ultimately earned the win, beating both another Taika Waititi project (Our Flag Means Death) and another acclaimed comedy in its final season (Barry).
