After Marvel Studios won its first Emmy award in 2021, the team hopes for more of that same success moving into 2022. Among the Disney+ series that Marvel is promoting for potential Emmy glory is Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, who helped change the game last year. with the evil time traveler God of Mischief.
Since Disney changed its plans with Loki by sending it as a drama rather than a limited series, the show is up against the tougher competition in its pursuit of this year’s coveted gold hardware.
However, that hasn’t stopped Marvel from promoting the Hiddleston series at all costs after delivering the lead actor’s first solo project in his decade of service to the MCU to date.
Loki Appears for Emmy Award Consideration
Along with Hiddleston as the main character in the Loki series, many of his co-stars will be potential Emmy considerations, such as Mobius from Owen Wilson and Kang the Conqueror from Jonathan Majors.
Now, with just a few months to go before the awards are announced, Marvel is officially putting its best foot forward with submissions from last year’s hit program.
Marvel Sends Loki Episodes for the Emmys
Gold Derby shared the 26 categories in which Marvel Studios will submit nominations for the 2022 Emmy Awards for Loki at Disney+ last year.
This includes the entire main cast, all behind lead actor Tom Hiddleston as the titular God of Chaos. Owen Wilson (Mobius), Sophia Di Martino (Sylvie), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Judge Renslayer), and Wunmi Mosaku (Hunter B-15) will also be seeking their own Emmy wins in the acting category.
In the Supporting Actor category, Richard E. Grant (Classic Loki) and Jonathan Majors (He Who Remains) will be seeking Emmy wins for their work in Episodes 5 and 6.
Episode 1 entitled “Glorious Purpose” will compete for the Best Writing (Drama) and Best Costume (Fantasy/Sci-Fi) categories. It is in this episode that Loki first escapes 2012 New York City with the Tesseract, lands in TVA custody, and talks to Mobius about hunting down a rogue Variant of himself.
The penultimate episode of Season 1, “Journey Into Mystery,” hopes to earn three Emmy awards, including Best Direction (Drama), Best Hairstylist (Period/Character), and Best Makeup (Period/Character). This episode features Loki interacting with his four Variants, including Boastful Loki, Classic Loki, Kid Loki, and Alligator Loki as they navigate The Void and work to find out the truth once everything is trimmed.
Episode 3, “Lamentis,” will also seek a nomination for Best Cinematography (Single-Camera Series, One Hour). This entry pits Loki against Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie as they try to stay alive in one of the greatest natural disasters in history on planet Lamentis-1.
The last three categories that will be shown are Best Actor (Drama), Best Main Title Design, and Best Main Title Theme Music.
Loki Burns For A Noble Emmy Purpose
Tom Hiddleston himself is no stranger to Emmy Awards nominations, as he was nominated for two separate trophies in 2016 for his work on The Night Manager. Now, he and his crew are seeking the same level of success within the MCU umbrella, if not more so, with a few wins.
Given that WandaVision is the only show to win an Emmy Award for the MCU so far, it’s hard to predict how Loki will compete with other top-tier competition at this year’s awards show. Even so, fans will certainly hope that one of the MCU’s longest-lasting fan-favorite characters gets the recognition he’s worked on over the past decade as Loki continues to evolve. Season 1 of Loki is available to stream on Disney+.
