‘WandaVision’ Wins First Emmys For Marvel Studios

Marvel Studios took home its first two Emmy Awards on Saturday night, for WandaVision.

The acclaimed miniseries won out in the categories of Outstanding Production Design For A Narrative Program (Half-Hour) and Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes.

Production Designer Mark Worthington, Art Director Sharon Davis and Set Decorator Kathy Orlando accepted the former award, with Costume Designer Mayes C. Rubeo, Assistant Costume Designer Joseph Feltus, Assistant Costume Designer Daniel Selon and Costume Supervisor Virginia Burton claiming the latter.

Wandavision is a genre-bending series created for Disney+ by Jac Schaeffer, which picks up weeks after the events of Avengers: Endgame. It centers on Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany), two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives in the town of Westview, New Jersey, who begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.

At the first Creative Arts Emmys ceremony of 2021, Disney+ claimed a total of six statuettes. The Mandalorian took the awards for Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (Half-Hour), Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (One Hour) and Prosthetic Makeup, with Black Is King claiming Costumes for a Variety, Nonfiction or Reality Program. (The latter award was juried—its winner, announced in advance of tonight’s ceremony.)
