Loki's Emmy Campaign Highlights Kang's Jonathan Majors and 6 More Actors

By David Thompson Posted:

It's been nearly a year since Marvel Studios' third Disney+ series premiered. Tom Hiddleston returned once again for Loki, starring alongside Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, and special guest Jonathan Majors. The series was a time-traveling, Multiverse-opening adventure about guilt, shape, and self-healing. Complicated, but one of the highest viewed Disney+ Marvel shows to date.

The six-part series ended with an eerie, mind-bending finale that lends itself nicely toward a second season. It's anyone's guess how the sequel season will play out, but the first one was a hit, led by lead writer Michael Waldron and director Kate Herron. Neither of the two will return in the same capacity for season two.

Despite having been a year since the show was streamed, it is eligible for the 2022 Emmy Awards. Although there are not a lot of front-runners, Disney is already preparing for a big awards season push.

Will Loki Win An Emmy?

It is looking unlikely that Loki will win any major awards. The Hollywood Reporter lists Loki as only a "possibility" for "Best Drama Series". The front-runners for that category include Stranger Things, Succession, and Squid Game. No actors are listed as front-runners, threats, or possibilities by THR.

However, Loki could have some possibility in a technical award like stunts, special effects, editing, or composing.

Marvel Studios is relatively new to the television awards season, but with the incredibly high rate that it is putting out new series, its presence will surely be felt at the awards.

Disney+ in general has been pushing for awards in all of its series that apply. Similar to Marvel's Oscar success, these series aren't likely to win any of the main actings, directing, or overall awards.

The Emmy Awards will be held in September 2022.
