Last night the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles, and Elizabeth attended the award ceremony with Robbie Arnett! Elizabeth looked absolutely beautiful in white, wearing a dress designed by her sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen for The Row. While she didn’t take any Emmy home, she was awarded as The Best Dressed by Vogue and we couldn’t agree more! Our gallery’s been updated with photos from the award ceremony, which you can check out by clicking on the link below.

(Photos) How Elizabeth Olsen Brought Marvel From Mainstream to Prestige  

Elizabeth is on the cover of the August 19th issue of Backstage, where she speaks about working on WandaVision, her break out project Martha Marcy May Marlene and her career up until she reached the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Our gallery’s been updated with outtakes from the session, and you can read the full interview below!

Elizabeth Olsen grins widely over video chat when recalling many such moments on set with her co-stars. Yet, she can’t bring herself to divorce such a lofty vision of film acting from the technical multitasking it requires. The camera sees all.

“But then you move your hair, and you’re in your brain, like: OK, remember that! Because I don’t want to edit myself out of a shot. I know some actors are like, ‘Continuity, shmontinuity!’ But the good thing about continuity is, if you remember it, you’re actually providing yourself with more options for the edit.”

That need to balance being both inside the scene and outside of it, fully living it and yet constantly visualizing it on a screen, feels particularly apt in light of Olsen’s most recent project, “WandaVision.”

The Disney+ miniseries, which racked up 23 Emmy nominations—including one for Olsen in the outstanding lead actress in a limited or anthology series or movie category—is rooted in the magical possibilities of living your life as if it were being screened for someone else to watch. Playfully paying homage to TV classics like “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” “Bewitched,” and “I Love Lucy,” the buzzy Marvel series set in the small town of Westview imagines what various quaint sitcoms starring Wanda Maximoff (Olsen), her beloved, Vision (Paul Bettany), and a requisite pesky next-door neighbor named Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) would look like.

The mysteries at the heart of the show grow with every episode, each fast-forwarding to a different decade: Could this 1950s, black-and-white, “filmed in front of a studio audience” newlyweds bit be a grief-stricken dream? Might this ’70s spoof be a powerful spell gone awry? Could this meta take on mockumentary comedies be proof that the multiverse is finally coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

(Photos) Elizabeth for W’s TV Portfolio  

W magazine has unveiled their choices for TV Portfolio 2021, and Elizabeth’s taken their challenge to pay homage to her favorite small-screen character by stepping into their shoes. For Elizabeth, that’d be Jessica Fletcher from Murder, She Wrote. Our gallery’s been updated with the photo, taken by Robbie Arnett, and below you will find an interview and video posted by the publication!

WandaVision was the first television show produced by Marvel Studios, and any gamble Disney+ took to make the series happen immediately paid off. At one point during its nine-episode run, WandaVision was the most popular streamed show in the world (beaten only recently by another Marvel series, Loki). The suburbia-set series received critical acclaim, snagging 23 Emmy nominations—one of those for Elizabeth Olsen, who was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her performance as the titular Wanda—and convinced even the biggest Marvel skeptics to buy into its delicious plot.

It might come as a surprise, then, that Olsen doesn’t really watch that much contemporary television herself. But who could blame the actress, when most of her time is spent filming scenes for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Wanda Maximoff (also known as the Scarlet Witch), a wielder of chaos magic who materializes in the small town of Westview—first as a 1950s-era housewife married to a humanlike robot named Vision (played by Paul Bettany), then as a ’60s housewife, then a ’70s housewife, and so on. When the actress does watch television, though, she prefers to get into some of those older shows, like Murder, She Wrote, which she chose to re-create above, and, of course, episodes of ’90s sitcoms like Full House, of which there was no dearth in the actress’s childhood.

How did WandaVision come to you? You had already played the character Wanda Maximoff in the Avengers films, but WandaVision was a whole other ball game.

My contract with Marvel was done. Kevin Feige, who runs Marvel, had me come into his office, and he pitched me WandaVision. I loved the concept of it, but I was terrified of a new streaming service—that is now Disney+.

Did you know the entire concept going in, or was it revealed to you over time?

He told me that he wanted to create a story about Wanda Maximoff manipulating reality to mimic the sitcoms that she grew up with in order to comfort herself. He wanted it to be kind of trippy, for it to feel like a sitcom, but twisted, kind of Twilight Zone-y. That reminded me of Twilight Zone: The Movie, where there’s a boy who is obsessed with television, has a horrible family, and he conjures up a bunny that kills his whole family. It’s really wacky. I just thought, It would be incredible if we do anything that’s a piece of that.

Elizabeth Olsen discusses her 1st Emmy nomination for “WandaVision”  

Following up on the Variety article, we now have an interview that Elizabeth gave after her Emmy nomination was announced. A fun talk, which also brings up Halloween costumes? Check out the interview, posted by Awards Watch below!

With the incredible 23 Emmy nominations for WandaVision this morning, the most for any limited series this year, it only seemed fitting to speak with Elizabeth Olsen about her first Emmy nomination. Little did we know that we’d eventually speak with her over the phone while she was driving through a canyon which in many ways is very fitting. Wanda and Vision find themselves in the oddest of circumstances during some of the more recognizable time periods in recent history. How did Elizabeth find out about her nomination? What was her favorite episode in the series? Did she speak with any of the cast following the announcement? We cover it all and then some.

Dewey Singleton: Congratulations, Ms. Olsen.

Elizabeth Olsen: Thank you. Fair warning, I am driving through a canyon. Just wanted to let you know.

DS: Let’s get to the obvious question, how did you find out?

EO: My partner Robbie told me when I was emptying the dishwasher this morning.

DS: Was there disbelief? Were you shocked that you got nominated?

EO: I mean, I am okay being the underdog. So, I wasn’t trying to get my hopes up, but I definitely was hoping that our show would get recognized. And I know that it did have a really special response, and being a part of Marvel, you don’t get a lot of kind critical recognition from awards. And so, you never know, and I’m surprised. And I think I’m mostly excited that it sounds like so many of our departments got recognized and it was a very challenging job and we all cared so much. And so, I’m just happy for the entire 360, I’m very happy for everyone that worked so hard on our show.

DS: When I talked to your marvelous director Matt Shakman, he said that quote, you not being nominated would be an injustice because of what you brought to that series. He said that about you and Paul. What was it like working with him on the series?

EO: There’s no way this show would have been created by anyone else and been as successful. I don’t think there’s a person in the world who’s more equipped to create such a great job with something that asks so much of a director stylistically and genre-wise and tonally. And I just feel like, and beyond that, he’s a kind, patient, an incredible source of information. Matt Shakman’s just, I cannot speak more highly of him. He’s really just, we were so lucky to have him. And I still work with the same hair and makeup team since WandaVision. And we talk about him almost every day. We adore Matt Shakman.

DS: Out of all the episodes of WandaVision, which one was the most enjoyable to you? My theory is that it had to have been the one in front of the live studio audience.

EO: You know what, that wasn’t my favorite just because it was the first. And I think it was a lot, right? It was just a lot of, we’re starting our show. This is the first way we’re starting our show. I think it was, I felt less in control of that one. And then I think once we got to the seventies, I just felt so free because the seventies tonally already kind of had the most absurd comedy style that we were going for. And so, I really enjoyed that style of comedy. And then I enjoyed this splicing between that and kind of the false exterior starting to come down a bit in that episode. So, there was a tonal line that was fun to play. And then the seventies sitcom was just a joy.

Elizabeth Olsen reacts to Emmy nominations

Elizabeth Olsen
Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie (“WandaVision”)

I’m just really proud of us! It was a crazy show, and I’m sure everyone feels that way at the end of every job. We had a great time together making our show, and for it to even have had the response that it had was enough, and then to be recognized on this level is very surprising and exciting.

For Marvel to enter television by creating a love song to television just felt perfect. It was so challenging but such a joy, it was really one of the most fun jobs I’ve ever had because of these sitcoms through the decades. It made me realize, “Oh maybe I should be a sitcom actor, what am I doing with all these dramas?”
