Marvel Studios can now officially be called an Emmy-winning studio as of this week, and it’s all thanks to a little show called WandaVision.

WandaVision was the first Marvel Studios live-action series to air and quickly became a success. Fans tuned into Disney+ each week to follow the mysteries surrounding Wanda and Vision. The show set the foundation for what to expect from Marvel television shows going forward. Series like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki differed in tone but had the same high-quality production.

That effort was rewarded over the weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys, which rewards artists and artisans who labor mostly behind the scenes in areas like costumes, set design and special effects. The series took home a grand total of three Creative Arts Emmys:

  • Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes
  • Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics
  • Outstanding Production Design For A Narrative Program (Half-Hour)

If “Agatha All Along” has been your favorite bop this year, congratulations: It’s now an Emmy-winning song.

WandaVision Emmys continue this weekend

The Mandalorian, another Disney+ show, did even better over the weekend, taking home awards for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup, Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (Half-Hour), Outstanding Sound Mixing For a Comedy or Drama Series (One Hour), Outstanding Stunt Performance, Outstanding Stunt Coordination and Outstanding Special Visual Effects In A Season Or A Movie.

And neither of these shows are done. The Primetime Emmy Awards have yet to air, and WandaVision has some pretty big nominations. To many fans’ delight, three of the principal actors from the series are nominated for an acting award in the Limited Series category. Elizabeth Olsen is up for Lead Actress, Paul Bettany is nominated for Lead Actor, and Kathryn Hahn is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress.

On top of that, WandaVision itself is nominated for Outstanding Limited Or Anthology Series. That would be a huge one for Marvel Studios to win, especially considering the history superhero films and television series have at awards shows. (Let’s just say, it’s not great).

The Primetime Emmys will air this Sunday, September 19 on CBS. And we’ll see if WandaVision has what it takes to keep pulling more Emmys for Marvel Studios.
