Here’s what the Webby Awards site say about Scott’s performance: A beloved actor, when Adam Scott attaches himself to a streaming show, people want to watch. That’s partly why Severance is one of the most compelling series on streaming. In his portrayal of Mark Scout, the Lumon Industries employee who chooses to “sever” his work and personal lives, Adam Scott brings his quiet strength and humor to this dystopian story.
