‘Mandalorian’, ‘WandaVision,’ ‘Hamilton’ score big noms and wins at the 73rd Annual Emmys in L.A.

Disney+ was alive and well last night at the 73rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

The streaming platform is still in its infancy, having only gone live 22 months ago, but Disney is continually adding to its buffet of content, and its made-for-Disney+ series and shows are some of the best in the entertainment world.

And apparently, the Academy agrees.

Marvel’s WandaVision scooped up 20 nominations, and the Academy had decorated Jon Favreau’s Star Wars spinoff, The Mandalorian, with 24 nominations. Seven of the ten actors in Hamilton scored an Emmy nomination as well, and so did the director.

Here’s a look at nominations and wins for each of them.

About Becky Burkett

I'm a Lone Star State native whose idea of joy includes any combination of the following: cold weather, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 2 boys, my 2 girls, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history and being at Disney World. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birds at the Enchanted Tiki Room, scoring the 999,999 at Buzz's Space Ranger Spin, or trying for the highest score in the toybox at Toy Story Mania! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
