Pakistani filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy’s ‘Ms Marvel’ has bagged three nominations at the Emmy awards, becoming the only Marvel series to be nominated.

The series was nominated for Outstanding Picture Editing For A Limited Series, Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music, and Outstanding Music Composition For A Limited Series (Original Dramatic Score).

The series will be competing next to some other popular series such as Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Cabinet Of Curiosities’, ‘The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power’, and Netflix’s ‘Wednesday’.


Ms Marvel made international waves last year as the first Pakistani superhero led Marvel series. It centers around Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American Muslim girl, who on discovering a powerful bangle, realises that she is a superhero. Pakistani actors Fawad Khan, Mehwish Hayat, Nimra Bucha and Samina Ahmed also starred in the show.

Another Pakistani documentary “The Accused: Damned Or Devoted” written and directed by Muhammad Ali Naqvi has made waves by being nominated at the prestigious awards. The documentary explores the rise of the late chief of the political party Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) Khadim Hussain Rizvi, who was determined to protect Pakistan’s controversial blasphemy laws.

HBO had scored the most Emmy nominations, with Succession scoring 27 nominations including Outstanding Drama Series, for which the studio’s other critically acclaimed series like ‘The Last Of Us’, ‘The White Lotus’ and ‘House Of The Dragon’ are also competing.
