It’s no secret that the Emmys have traditionally overlooked science fiction, fantasy, and comic book series. But the past few years have changed that, thanks to massive franchises like Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, and smaller prestige series like Orphan Black. This year, several genre shows are in contention for big awards, like WandaVision, The Mandalorian, and Amazon’s The Boys.

This weekend saw these shows taking home trophies at the Creative Arts Emmys, which are awarded before the Primetime Emmys next week. Disney+ and Marvel’s WandaVision has won Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program (Half-Hour). These are the first-ever Emmys for Marvel Studios, with WandaVision being nominated for 23 Emmys overall. Disney+ also took from some awards for The Mandalorian, including Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup and Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (One Hour).

Other big winners include Bridgerton and The Queen’s Gambit. Sketch comedy series A Black Lady Sketch Show made history by winning Outstanding Picture Editing for Variety Programming with a post production team made up entirely of women of color.

Awards are still rolling in, and we’ll keep you updated with future wins. Congrats to the winners and nominees!

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
