Apple was honored with four Golden Globe nominations today for Apple Original films "On The Rocks" and "Wolfwalkers," and Apple Original series "Ted Lasso," making history as the first streaming service to receive a nomination in the Best Motion Picture, Animated category in less than a year and a half since its launch.

Since its debut just over a year ago on November 1, 2019, Apple Originals have been honored with 219 awards nominations and 61 wins in just over a year, including Critics Choice Awards, Critics Choice Documentary Awards, Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards, SAG Awards, an NAACP Image Award, a Peabody Award and more.
