Marvel fandom infighting begins as ‘Loki’ fails to win a single Emmy

After WandaVision‘s strong showing at last year’s Emmys, Marvel fans paid special attention to this weekend’s Creative Emmy Awards ceremony. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as big as a success for the next wave of MCU TV series as it was for WV last year. While Moon Knight managed to come away with a win, neither What If…? or, more surprisingly, Loki managed to pick up a gong for themselves.

You’d think that Marvel lovers, seeing as they’re all on the same side, would be content to congratulate Moon Knight and commiserate Loki, but actually the fandom seems to have devolved into infighting as Oscar Isaac enthusiasts laugh in the face of Loki loyalists, while WandaVision winners sit at the side and laugh malevolently like Agatha Harkness.

Then, of course, there are the Loki fans working through the different stages of grief over its lack of Emmys.

How did composer Natalie Holt not pick up the award for her Loki score?

Yeah, but Loki’s alive and Wanda isn’t, so…

Well, no, you don’t have to.

And some people just like to sit back and enjoy the carnage.

It’s true, Chip n Dale: Rescue Rangers is an Emmy Award-winning production. Loki is not.

The way the MCU fandom has become divided into factions over their favorite Disney Plus series is curious, as the same has never really happened when it comes to the movies. Some folks like Iron Man while others prefer Captain America, and everyone’s always been OK with that. And yet, there’s a constant war going on between supporters of WandaVision, Loki, Moon Knight, and the rest, as this current Twitter battle makes clear. Come on, guys, what would the Avengers say?
