The Marvel Cinematic Universe is seeing more success, as their series’ Loki, Moon Knight, and Hawkeye each received multiple Emmy nominations last July 12.
Loki is arguably one of the best series that Marvel has put out so far. Tom Hiddleston starred in a series that was critical to the MCU’s Phase 4 story. It deservingly received six Emmy nominations.
It was nominated for the following: Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Period or Fantasy Program, Outstanding Cinematography for a Single Camera Series, Outstanding Fantasy Sci-Fi Costumes, Outstanding Music Composition for a Series, Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music, Outstanding Sound Editing for a Comedy/Drama Series.
Moon Knight is another show that people consider the best of the best in the MCU. Oscar Isaac starred as the superhero with Dissociative Identity Disorder and was the only MCU series that did not have any heavy references to other MCU movies and series, making it a true standalone origin story.
It was nominated for eight Emmy awards, which are the following: Outstanding Cinematography for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, Outstanding Fantasy Sci-Fi Costumes, Outstanding Music Composition for a Limited/Anthology Series/Movie/Special, Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance (F. Murray Abraham), Outstanding Sound Editing for a Limited or Anthology Series, Movie or Special, Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Limited or Anthology Series, Movie or Special, Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Drama Series, Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, and Outstanding Stunt Performance.
Hawkeye was also a good show that received good ratings with critics, but is generally less popular with fans because much like the movie Black Widow, it didn’t fit with Phase 4’s grandiose and rather complicated multiversal story.
Nonetheless, it has earned two Emmy nominations: Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Comedy Series or Variety Program, and Outstanding Stunt Performance.
As a bonus, the MCU’s animated series What If…? also received a couple of Emmy nominations. There’s the nomination for Outstanding Animated Program, and Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance – a posthumous nomination for Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, and Jeffrey Wright as The Watcher.
During last year’s Emmys, Marvel shows received their fair share of nominations, as WandaVision garnered a massive twenty-three nominations and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier got five of its own. Marvel Studios only ended up getting three awards, all from WandaVision. Maybe we’ll see more success with MCU shows this year.
The Emmy Awards is set to air on September 12, 2022.
