"Stillwater," the children's series that stars a wise panda, has also received a nomination in the 'Children's and Youth' category.

Based on the Scholastic book series "Zen Shorts" by Jon J Muth, "Stillwater" is produced by Gaumont and Scholastic Entertainment and centers on siblings Karl, Addy and Michael, who are typical kids with typical kid challenges – meaning that sometimes even the smallest things can feel insurmountable. Fortunately for these three, they have Stillwater, a wise panda, as their next-door neighbor. Through his example, stories and gentle humor, Stillwater gives the children a deeper understanding of their feelings as well as tools that help them face their own day-to-day challenges. Stillwater also brings newfound fun and adventure for the three, opening their eyes to the quiet wonders of the world around them and guiding them to their place within it.

The first seasons of "Ted Lasso" and "Stillwater" are available now on Apple TV+. If you want to watch both in their best quality, check out our list of the Best Apple TV in 2021.
