As detailed in a report by Variety, of the multiple Marvel Cinematic Universe series to air on streaming service Disney+ in 2021, Marvel and Disney seem to have high hopes for “Loki” at this year’s Emmy awards ceremony.
The 2022 Emmy nominees have yet to be announced, so just how many nominations “Loki” might receive is not yet a sure thing. Variety, however, confirmed that Marvel and Disney must enter “Loki” into contention as a drama, after initially planning on submitting it as a limited series.
Whereas fellow MCU shows “Hawkeye” and “Moon Knight” will compete as limited series, “Loki” promises viewers a second season in the final episode of its first, leading the Television Academy to disqualify it from limited series contention amidst a larger effort to regulate what can and cannot compete in such categories.
While precisely which awards Marvel and Disney think “Loki” might have a chance at winning are not public knowledge, Variety theorizes that series star Tom Hiddleston, director Kate Herron, and composer Natalie Holt may all earn nominations for their respective contributions.
According to the Emmy Awards Calendar, the full list of Emmy nominees will become available on July 12 in advance of the awards show on September 12.
