Outlander notes: WIN Awards nominations and a season 4 update

WIN AwardsThere are a couple of Outlander updates CarterMatt wants to go over in this article, but we want to start things off by issuing some congratulations! The WIN Awards — otherwise known as the Women’s Image Network Awards honoring some of the best contributions by women in the entertainment industry — have chosen to honor the Starz series in a variety of ways for their third season.

If you visit the awards’ official site, you can see that star Caitriona Balfe was nominated alongside writer Anne Kenney (for “Surrender”) and director Charlotte BrΓ€ndstrΓΆm (“The Bakra”). The entire production team of Anne Kenney, Toni Graphia, Maril Davis, Marigo Kehoe, Elicia Bessette, Shannon Goss, Joy Blake, and Karen Campbell was given a little bit of love for the premiere episode “The Battle Joined.” The series itself was also nominated.

More details about the WIN Awards this year are forthcoming but it’s a wonderful achievement that the show is getting so much love. We do think that this show does a great job of spreading a message of empowerment, not just in terms of what’s on the screen, but also with some of the people who are working behind the scenes to make the magic happen.

You can also consider some of these nominations as evidence that the rest of the season is every bit as excellent as what you’ve had a chance to see so far. After all, there are nominations on this list for episodes that haven’t aired yet!

The second episode block is about to film!

For those of you looking to get the latest Outlander season 4 filming update, we come bearing the tweet below via series star Caitriona Balfe. She made it clear that filming for the second block (episodes 3 and 4) will start off tomorrow — we anticipate that this is going to take them through most of the holiday season given how long on average it takes in order to film an episode of the show.

For those wondering, the Brazilian comment Balfe makes here is a reference to some of the Portuguese subtitles that came on the air for this past episode. We don’t want to get too graphic here at CarterMatt, but let’s just say that someone in Brazil inserted (on accident) subtitles for an adult entertainment program instead of the proper ones. While it makes for a pretty funny news item after the fact we do feel genuinely bad for some of the viewers in Brazil who must have felt very confused.

Interested in learning more about episode blocks and how many there are this season? We wrote a story recently all about that.
