Awards & Nominations


Arrested Development was a critic and award darling, but never landed a major audience. Over the first three seasons, Arrested Development won 25 television and industry awards, and held an additional 37 nominations.

Season One (2004)Edit

The following awards were awarded in 2004 or 2005 for the work done during the 2003-2004 television season, which included Season One of Arrested Development. AD won 15 awards and held an additional 10 nominations.


AFI AwardsEdit

  • Official Selection: TV Program of the Year (1 of 10 winners)

AFI: Arrested Development is a quirky comic voice in the grand tradition of Mister Ed and Green Acres. Entertaining and distinctive in its documentary style, this eccentric look at the extremes of American family life delivers the all-too-rare belly laugh and instills new hope for growth and maturity in today's stunted comedy environment.

AFI AwardsEdit

  • Official Selection: TV Program of the Year (1 of 10 winners)

AFI: Arrested Development marches to the tap of its own therapist's pencil, often finding itself so far outside the traditional form of television comedy that it stands alone in its own genre. Richly imagined by Mitchell Hurwitz and the creative ensemble, each week the show's lovably twisted characters give us an uproarious, glorious trip to the nuthouse they call home. Amid the laughs is brilliant commentary on celebrity and a gleefully wicked satire of the American family we all know too well.
