Agatha All Along, awarded with an Emmy
At Marvel Studios they must be uncorking the champagne today. And it is that not every day you take three Emmys and even less with a proposal that means so much for the future project of the company. As you know, Wandavision It has been the first of a good list of series that are to come and that will feed the Marvel Cinematic Universe so that film and television go hand in hand in parallel and feed back with their stories.
Scarlet Witch and Vision It also had the particular characteristic of being quite atypical in its approach: far from the traditional format that we have seen on the big screen so far, the proposal of Matt shakman, its director, bet on a fun combination of scenes in homage to sitcoms from the 50s onwards with the current plot -whose time frame is located shortly after Iron Man’s Blip.
In the end the risk has had its reward and the series has been nominated for nothing less than 23 Emmy Awards (including Best Leading Actors for Paul Bettany and Elisabeth Olsen and Supporting Actress for Kathryn Hahn) of which she has already collected three from the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
Among the latter (which, as we have already explained, are awarded a week before the grand gala of the main awards) stands out the award to Best Original Music and Lyrics by “Agatha All Along”. In case you don’t remember it, this is how it sounds:
The song, composed by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, appeared in Episode 7, when Agnes he discovered himself before Wanda, revealing to her that she is actually Agatha Harkness and that she had been responsible for many of the things that had happened to her in the neighborhood.
The sympathetic melody thus adds another prize (it already had costumes and a short science-fiction / fantasy series) waiting for next weekend, when we will see if the title is capable of taking any of the big prizes.
The Mandalorian also takes a prize
Disney + also has another fictional character struggling to take home a few figurines. We refer, of course, to The Mandalorian, which has also received a good number of nominations (39, no more, no less) in this edition of the Emmy.
At the moment, the creative awards have 12 won, including Best Visual Special Effects in a Season or Movie, Best Prosthetic Makeup or Best Production Design for a Half-Hour Narrative Program.
Next weekend he will also fight for some “fat” accolades for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Giancarlo Esposito (the evil Moff Gideon, on these lines), Best Leading Actor in a Drama Series for Carl Weathers (giving life to Greef Karga) or Best drama series from 2021.
