The Emmy nominations are in and Marvel Studios has earned a total of 19 nominations for their Disney+ television series including a posthumous nod for the late Black Panther star, Chadwick Boseman. It’s been nearly two years since the actor passed away after battling cancer but his character still lives on as he was nominated for his performance in What If…?

With other big streaming services like Hulu, Netflix, and Apple TV shows being nominated, it’s a big win for Marvel Studios to get recognition for their work during the 2021-2022 season.

The campaign definitely seemed to have worked! Even though Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac didn’t receive a nomination for the series itself (He was nominated for HBO’s Scenes From A Marriage), Khonshu voice actor F. Murray Abraham was nominated for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance.

The series was also nominated in the following categories:

  • Outstanding Stunt Performance
