Viewers were particularly disappointed that the nominees for WandaVision didn’t receive any recognition for the popular Disney+ show. Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn were nominated, and the show itself was nominated for Outstanding Limited Series, but lost out to Ewan McGregor, Kate Winslet and Julianne Nicholson in their respective categories, while The Queen’s Gambit took home the award for limited series.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: “The range that Elizabeth Olsen showcased while playing Wanda Maximoff in WandaVision was absolutely remarkable. That was a tough category and any winner is worthy but I’m just so proud of her for changing the game and delivering that outstanding performance.” Another person added: “No shade to Julianne, who is wonderful, but Kathryn Han was next-level in #WandaVision and deserved that #Emmys."
