‘WandaVision’ Makes Emmy Awards History for Marvel Studios

Although the Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony is not until next weekend, WandaVision has already walked off with a couple of awards. This weekend, the Television Academy held the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards, honoring the best behind-the-scenes work from the past year in television. The Disney+ series has won two trophies already and was nominated for several major awards that will be given next week. WandaVision‘s wins were the first for a Marvel Studios television series.

So far, WandaVision has won Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes for Mayes C. Rubeo, Joseph Feltus, Daniel Selon, and Virginia Burton’s work on the episode “Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience”; and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program (Half-Hour) for Mark Worthington, Sharon Davis, and Kathy Orlando’s work on the series. WandaVision has done much better than The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which was only up for five awards this weekend.

On Sept. 19, WandaVision could become one of the first Marvel projects to win a major award for acting performances. Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, and Kathryn Hahn all scored nominations for their performances in the show. The series is also up for Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series, facing off against I May Destroy You, Mare of Easttown, The Queen’s Gambit, and The Underground Railroad. WandaVision scored 23 Emmy nominations in total.

WandaVision is the first Marvel Television series to score major Emmy nominations, as past projects have only attracted Creative Arts Emmy nods. During its entire seven-season run, Agents of SHIELD only scored Outstanding Special Visual Effects nominations in 2014 and 2015. Daredevil earned five nominations, all stunt coordination, sound editing, visual effects, and its title design, but none for its actors’ acclaimed performances. Luke Cage won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Drama Series, Limited Series or Movie in 2017. Luke Cage was produced before Marvel Television projects were transferred to Kevin Feige’s oversight at Marvel Studios.
