It won’t be until next time September 19th when we know who wins the main awards, such as Best Series, Best Actress, Best Actor or Best Direction of these Emmy Awards, but for now we can assume that the series based on the Star Wars universe has all the ballots to be one of the most mentioned names during the gala, which will be held at the Microsoft Theater, in the heart of Los Angeles, California, and will air in the United States on CBS and Paramount +.
WandaVision (Disney +), which begins Phase 4 of the Marvel Universe in terms of series, has remained very close with a total of 23 nominations, thus making it clear that Star Wars and Marvel not only stand out at the box office and among the great masses, but whose production, script and staging values are capable of dazzling a very diverse jury and increasingly aware of the superhero world.
HBO Max takes the cake, however, when it comes to payment platforms. Despite not being a leader in subscribers, where it is far from its main competitors, in this case they lead the list of nominations with 130 candidates; Netflix is in second place with 129 postulates. Finally, Dinsey + grows significantly and stands at 71 nominations.
