The Golden Globe awards announced their 2022 nominations today…but they didn’t have much love for Marvel fans.
Despite the popularity and previous critical acclaim of WandaVision, the series didn’t land its own Golden Globe nomination today. (No other Marvel series landed nods either. But when even WandaVision can’t squeeze in, that’s not too surprising.)
Though the show itself didn’t receive recognition, both Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany received acting nominations from the HFPA under the “Best Performance in a Limited Series” category. Olsen’s fellow nominees include Jessica Chastain (Scenes From a Marriage), Cynthia Erivo (Genius: Aretha), Margaret Qualley (Maid), and Kate Winslet (Mare of Easttown). Bettany goes up against Oscar Isaac (Scenes From a Marriage), Michael Keaton (Dopesick), Ewan McGregor (Halston), and Tahar Rahim (The Serpent).
However, WandaVision itself did not receive a nomination for “Best Limited or Anthology Series.” Those nominations instead included Dopesick (Hulu), Impeachment: American Crime Story (FX), Maid (Netflix), Mare of Easttown (HBO), and The Underground Railroad (Prime Video).
Earlier this year, WandaVision landed 23 Emmy Award nominations—but then only took home three awards, and none in so-called “major” categories. With only two Golden Globe nods, will the Marvel series’ odds improve? Or will our resident Scarlet Witch and Vision end up trapped in an award-free bubble universe?
We’ll have to wait until January 9 to find out—assuming someone actually picks up the Golden Globes ceremony to air this year.
