Marvel / Disney Plus
One of Marvel’s latest entries on Disney Plus has now been honored at the Creative Arts Emmys, with Moon Knight win a distinction without surprise.
Released in March 2022, the series touted the talents of Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke and May Calamaway, but it’s not its actors who get the nod for an Emmy; it is rather its sound editing that captures a gong. Winning the Emmy for Outstanding Sound Editing for a Limited or Anthology Series, Movie or Special, he joined the likes of What if…? and Wanda Vision receives recognition.
Marvel Studios celebrated the victory, with a tweet congratulating its sound editing team. Although this is the only victory of the limited series, Moon Knight also earned nominations for Outstanding Cinematography, Voiceover Performance for F. Murray Abraham as Khonshu, Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costume Design, Music Composition, Sound Mixing and Stunt Coordination as well as outstanding stunt performance.
Moon Knight proved a hit with critics, with a strong 86% approval rating on rotten tomatoes and an audience score of 90%. Die-hard fans of the character were disappointed with the departure from the gritty action of the original comics, but there’s no denying Isaac’s performance in the title role.
A second season was teased by the final episode of the first season as third Quirk Jake Lockley was introduced. There was no confirmation of its second season at Comic-Con, but the greenlight was announced at the upcoming Disney D23 convention, slated for later in September.
Moon Knight is available to stream on Disney Plus.
