The Witcher debuted at the end of last year and received good comments from the fan community. This is why many were surprised to learn that the Netflix production that tells us the adventures of Geralt de Rivia did not receive any Emmy Award nominations.
This Tuesday, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced all the nominees for the award ceremony. Many were struck by the fact that none of them is The Witcher, a Netflix production that has enjoyed success among the public and part of the specialized critics.
This news did not sit well with many members of the audience. We say this since several people have used social networks to point out that The Witcher deserved recognition at the awards ceremony. Especially for the performance of some members of its cast or for its soundtrack.
You can see some of the complaints below:
I’m big mad that The Witcher did not score ANY Emmy noms, especially for the music and original song. Come the fuck on.

so the witcher didn’t record a single emmy nom, big surprise. but oh well, not that those awards are an indication of anything. which is perhaps why people who rooted for the ost to get a nom aren’t like * mhm, maybe i know shit about music * right now, but rather * this is bullshit! *

But what are the nominated series? The list is long, but we inform you that Watchmen is the great winner with 26 nominations. On the other hand, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has 20 nominations, while Ozark and Succession have 18 nominations. It is worth mentioning that The Crown, The Mandalorian, Better Call Saul and Stranger Things are also candidates for important categories.

The Witcher has been a hit for Netflix
It’s important to remember that despite the lack of nominations, The Witcher has been a hit for Netflix. As proof we have that the series will have a second season, whose filming will return soon.
That is not all, since success has guaranteed that it will have 2 spin-offs that will grow the universe of The Witcher on Netflix. One of them will be an animated film that will focus on Vesemir, Geralt of Rivia’s mentor. There’s also Blood Origin, a series that will be a prequel that will take place 1,200 years before the Geralt of Rivia story.
