Marvel’s WandaVision & Loki Earn WGA Award Nominations

https://ift.tt/eA8V8J

The television nominations from the annual Writer’s Guild of America awards have been announced today and two of Marvel Studios’ Disney+ original series earned some nominations. Marvel’s WandaVision secured one nomination in the Adapted Long Form category while Marvel’s Loki earned two nominations, one in the Best Drama Series and the other in Best New Series. Other shows of interest that were nominated this year include FX’s What We Do in the Shadows, nominated for Best Comedy Series, and Showtime’s Yellowjackets, nominated for Best Drama Series and Best New Series; and Netflix’s Midnight Mass, nominated in the Best Original Long Form category.

2021 marked the first time that Marvel Studios took the leap into television, so both of these shows being nominated by the WGA is a big achievement for the House of Ideas. In fact both of these nominations for Marvel Studios ties their previous number of total nominations, both of which were for feature films. Black Panther writers Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole were nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2019 (it lost to Can You Ever Forgive Me?) while James Gunn and Nicole Perlman were nominated for Guardians of the Galaxy in the same category in 2015 (it lost to The Imitation Game). Should WandaVision or Loki win it would be the first for Marvel Studios.

The complete list of WGA TV nominations for 2022 can be found below.
