‘WandaVision’ Racks Up 23 Nominations at 2021 Emmys!! Check Out the Full List!!

The 2021 Emmy nominations have arrived! While 2020 was an odd year in many ways, Watchmen was the talk of the town when last year’s Emmy nominations rolled around, and it reigned supreme during the virtual telecast alongside Succession and Schitt’s Creek. For 2021, the Emmys have already commited to a live ceremony, which means the contenders from this robust list of nominees will be live and in person to accept their trophies for the best of television from the past calendar year.

The Crown and The Mandalorian lead in total Emmy nominations with 24 each, followed closely behind by WandaVision whcih racked up 23 nominations. Marvel Studios‘ first-ever TV series scored all the major nominations, including acting nods for Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, and Kathryn Hahn, and also dominated the Writing category with three nominations and a directing nomination. But it faces stiff competition in the Limited Series category, which also includes Mare of Easttown, The Queen’s Gambit, and I May Destroy You.

The other Marvel series eligible, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, only picked up one major nomination for Don Cheadle for Guest Actor in a Drama Series, while The Mandalorian picked up two Guest Actor nods for Timothy Olyphant and Carl Weathers.

Perhaps the biggest shockers came in the Best Drama Series and Best Comedy Series categories. Amazon‘s bloody superhero show The Boys scored a surprise Best Drama Series nomination, while Cobra Kai landed in Best Comedy.
