‘WandaVision’ vs. ‘Lady’s Gambit’ and ‘Mare of Easttown’

Without a doubt, the format of a miniseries or limited series (fiction of a single season) has defined several of the best works of the season and its category will be the most contested of the awards. Marvel’s big surprise ” WandaVision ” will compete against ” Mare of Easttown, ” the HBO phenomenon that has received widespread critical acclaim and part to great advantage.
