The MCU is going to the Emmys! Earlier today, it was announced that Marvel Studios’ first Disney+ series, WandaVision, was nominated for 23 Emmys. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier also picked up five nominations.
For WandaVision, the series overall was nominated for “Outstanding Limited Series.” In addition, Elizabeth Olsen (Lead Actress), Paul Bettany (Lead Actor), and Kathryn Hahn (Supporting Actress) were each nominated for their roles.
Shortly after being announced, Marvel Studios congratulated everyone who worked on the series.
The only notable nomination for the Falcon and the Winter Soldier was for Don Cheadle (Guest Actor, Drama), who briefly appeared in the first episode as James Rhodes. While the series was a hit with fans, it was seen as less favorable with critics, specifically the final episode. This would explain why it only received five nominations.
Overall, I’m sure Disney and Marvel Studios are pleased with the recognition both shows have gotten.
