The Humanitas Prize is a writing award for American television that was first given in 1976. In 1995, eligibility expanded to include the writers of feature films. Winners in bold.[1]

Although the prize is awarded only to writers, this list includes only the title of the film or television show they wrote. Additionally, it does not cover all of the Humanitas Prize categories.[1]
