2021 Emmys: ‘Lovecraft Country,’ ‘WandaVision,’ and ‘The Mandalorian’ combine for 65 nominations

Once again, genre television dominated this year’s Emmy nominations.

Much like last year, genre television will reign supreme during September’s 2021 Emmy Awards. This time it was Lovecraft Country and WandaVision joining the Star Wars: The Mandalorian to pull down 60 nominations.

The Mandalorian‘s 24 nominations include:

  • Outstanding Drama Series
  • Outstanding Writing for Dave Filoni
  • Outstanding Music Composition for Ludwig Göransson
  • Best Supporting Actor for Giancarlo Esposito
  • Best Guest Actor for Carl Weathers and Timothy Olyphant

Lovecraft Country‘s 18 nominations include

  • Outstanding Drama Series
  • Outstanding Writing for Misha Green
  • Outstanding Cinematography
  • Outstanding Special Visual Effects
  • Outstanding Music Composition for Laura Karpman and Raphael Saadiq
  • Outstanding Lead Actor for Jonathan Majors
  • Outstanding Lead Actress for Jurnee Smollett
  • Outstanding Supporting Actor for Michael K. Williams
  • Outstanding Supporting Actress for Aunjanue Ellis
  • Outstanding Guest Actor for Courtney B. Vance

…and hopefully a giant wake up call for HBO, who made the colossally bad decision to cancel Lovecraft Country and let Apple TV+ sign showrunner Misha Green.

I know some folks think this was a mutual decision, but based on the incredible/heartbreaking glimpses Green’s been sharing on Twitter of her plans for Lovecraft Country season 2, that looks a lot less likely.

WandaVision‘s 23 nominations include:

  • Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series
  • Outstanding Writing for Chuck Hayward, Peter Cameron, Jac Schaeffer, and Laura Donney
  • Outstanding Directing for Matt Shakman
  • Outstanding Music Composition for Christophe Beck
  • Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (and you know exactly what song this was for)
  • Outstanding Special Visual Effects
  • Outstanding Lead Actor for Paul Bettany
  • Outstanding Lead Actress for Elizabeth Olsen
  • Outstanding Supporting Actress for Kathryn Hahn

Some of our other favorite shows here at AIPT who picked up Emmy nominations this year include:

I should also note that my beloved Star Wars: The Clone Wars picked up 3 Daytime Emmy nominations. While those aren’t necessarily given the same reverence as the Primetime Emmys, it’s still good to know that the best season the series got some well-deserved recognition.
