‘WandaVision’ Emmy Interviews: Paul Bettany, Kathryn Hahn and more


“WandaVision” premiered January 15 on Disney + and immediately rocked the internet with enthusiasm. The Limited Series was the first Marvel show to debut on Disney’s new streaming service, offering a style and tone unlike any other MCU project that came before it. The superhero and sitcom mashup has become one of the most talked about television events of these years. Scroll down to watch our nine exclusive video interviews with the top Emmy nominees from the limited series.

The story focuses on Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth olsen) after witnessing the murder of his love Vision (Paul bettany) during “Avengers: Infinity War”. Despite Vision’s demise, “WandaVision” begins with the couple living in marital bliss against a black-and-white sitcom setting. Viewers quickly learn that this eerie reality somehow ties into Wanda’s untapped magical powers, as each episode plunges the pair into a new decade of sitcoms. Design elements, cinematography, and acting styles change over time. The sitcom’s vanity ultimately serves as a moving exploration of Wanda’s grief. Along the way, she and Vision meet an infamous neighbor Agnes (Catherine hahn) and witness the emergence of a new hero in Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris).

Olsen, Bettany and Parris are on the hunt for their first Emmy nominations. Hahn has already been nominated for “Transparent,” but has yet to win a trophy. Editor-in-chief Jac schaeffer is also seeking his first appointment. Matt shakman, who directed all nine episodes, is hoping for his second career Emmy nomination after being cited by the DGA for the Marvel series. He was previously an Emmy nominee for “The Great”.

Will Emmy voters fall in love with this unique show? Their record with genre series is uneven at best. Some recent behemoths like “Game of Thrones” and “Westworld” have been able to fit into major categories, while classics like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Battlestar Galactica” have been continually excluded from acting series and races. . But “WandaVision” captured the zeitgeist in a way few series could (similar to another Disney + series, “The Mandalorian,” which surprised with a drama series nomination and widespread support. last year). The combination of a must-have buzz, sitcom nostalgia and a moving allegory of grief could create the perfect spell to convince voters to put aside any gender bias.
