Emmys Scorecard: Wins By Network & Program After Creative Arts Ceremonies

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 six statuettes in total. Its flagship Star Wars series The Mandalorian received 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.)

With its wins tonight, the streamer continued to build on its reputation as a notable player at the Emmys, laying the groundwork to exceed its eight wins from its first go-round at the Emmys last year.
