Disney + series Star Wars: The Mandalorian receives 15 Emmy nominations, including Best Drama, Special Effects, Dubbing, and Guest Actor.
The Mandalorian, the first Star Wars television series, has garnered no less than 15 Emmy nominations, including Best Drama. Nominations for the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards were announced yesterday. While Netflix dominated with most of the nominations, Disney + also made its mark. poster Set five years after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, The Mandalorian follows Din Djarin played by Pedro Pascal, a lone bounty hunter who ends up protecting the boy, a being of the same species as Master Yoda, also renamed by fans like “Baby Yoda”. The duo embarks on an adventure to reunite the boy with his people while trying to avoid other bounty hunters who want to catch him. Created by Jon Favreau, the eight-episode series quickly became a hit and was praised by critics and Star Wars fans alike. Much of that success was due to a combination of its premiere with the launch of Disney + and Baby Yoda’s popular culture feel. Now the series receives a surprising assent from the Television Academy.
The Mandalorian is nominated for 15 Emmy Awards, including Best Drama. Along with the best dramatic wink, the show has also garnered Taika Waititi voiceover nominations as IG-11, guest actor in a drama series for Giancarlo Esposito, production design, cinematography, special visual effects, fantasy costumes / science fiction, music composition, prosthetic makeup, stunt coordination, two sound edits, and three single camera edition awards. The nominations make The Mandalorian the first Star Wars series to be nominated in a major category at the Emmy Awards. Emmy categories in the past have recognized Star Wars. The animated Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars Resistance received Creative Arts Emmy nominations, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars won the Emmy for animated programming in 2004 and 2005. The Mandalorian is also the first Star Wars live-action series nominated since the 1985 ABC movie Ewoks was. Overall, Disney + has had a total of 19 Emmy nominations, with 15 from The Mandalorian. These nominations are a great victory for the Star Wars franchise. With Game of Thrones out of the race this year for best drama, there is more room for other series to have a shot at winning. Also, fans will be happy to see that even Baby Yoda has technically received an Emmy nomination thanks to special effects. The Mandalorian has certainly made a big move in pop culture since its launch on the season, so it’s nice to see the show receive prestigious recognition in time for Season 2’s arrival in October.
