‘Luke Cage’ Wins Emmy for Stunts, Jay Lew Stressed Safety After the Ceremony

Marvel Television has been snubbed by the Television Academy many times, with their first win last year, for Jessica Jones. While the seal was broken last year, proving that voters did pay attention to the Netflix corner of the MCU, the one category where Marvel was expected to have the best shot, but still hadn’t been recognized, was reached this year, by Luke Cage. The critically acclaimed first season of Luke Cage was awarded “Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Drama Series, Limited Series, or Movie,” at the 2017 Creative Emmy awards.
Previously, Daredevil Season Two was nominated in this category, but did not win. This has been a particularly sad year for stunt professionals, with deaths on the sets of The Walking Dead and Deadpool 2.  For this reason, there was a bit more attention on James Lew, stunt coordinator for Luke Cage when he accepted the award. While he didn’t reference the recent tragedies during his acceptance speech, he did comment on the importance of safety, backstage. “I truly believe that the more experienced stunt coordinator,” he said, “you can give a better judgement on what you feel is not going to work story-wise, and also for danger. I like to tell producers, ‘I like to be stupid safe, because we’re only making entertainment, it’s not worth it.’ ” Marvel Television has a high-quality stunt team, which brings amazing feats to life in a short schedule and at a low budget.
