It wasn’t even a year ago when WandaVision and so many tin foil theories about the show caught the attention of the world, sending millions of fans to the internet after every episode for second-by-second speculation. Now WandaVision, known for its genuine exploration of grief, is the first Emmy winner for Marvel Studios.
The show explores the complicated character Wanda Maximoff, aka the superhero Scarlet Witch, wrestling with her emotional grief in the wake of her lover, Vision’s, death as she also comes to understand her reality-warping powers. A show that asks audience members, “What would we do to bring back our loved ones?” literally has the reality-warper do just that in the eight-episode mini-series.
WandaVision was nominated for 23 Emmys this year alone; some nominations included: lead actress in a limited or anthology series; supporting actress in a limited or anthology series; directing for a limited or anthology series, and the list goes on and on. The show’s win landed on the category of Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program and Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes.
Congrats. We expect to see more for Marvel Studios in the years to come.
