The Mandalorian won big at the 2020 Emmys. Here’s every award it won.
Disney+’s The Mandalorian has proved that it’s not just a winner in fans’ hearts, but it’s also a major winner win it comes to one of the biggest awards shows in Hollywood. The Emmys took place on Sunday, Sept. 20 with a virtual event, but that didn’t stop The Mandalorian from taking home quite a number of gold statuettes this year.
In total, The Mandalorian was nominated for 15 Emmys. Not many people could have guessed a live-action Star Wars TV show would be so popular that it’d reach this type of critical acclaim, but that was the case. The show was even nominated for the highest honor it could get: Oustanding Drama Series,. So, just how many awards did The Mandalorian win?
Ahead of Sunday’s ceremony, The Mandalorian won seven creative Emmys. One of those included an Emmy for the score created by composer Ludwig Göransson. And on the big night, The Mandalorian, unfortunately, didn’t take home its final Emmy, Oustanding Drama Series. (It lost that to HBO’s Succession.) That left the total count at seven by the end of the night. Below is a list of all the Emmys The Mandalorian won for season 2.
The Mandalorian: Emmys won
- Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (Half-Hour) And Animation
- Outstanding Special Visual Effects
- Outstanding Stunt Coordination For A Drama Series, Limited Series Or Movie
- Outstanding Cinematography For A Single-Camera Series (Half-Hour)
- Outstanding Sound Editing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (Half-Hour) And Animation
- Outstanding Production Design For A Narrative Program (Half-Hour)
- Outstanding Music Composition For A Series
The Mandalorian: Emmys lost
- Outstanding Drama Series
- Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup For A Series, Limited Series, Movie Or Special
- Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes
- Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Drama Series (Episodes 2, 4, 8)
- Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series-Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon
- Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance-Taika Waititi as IG-11
With all its wins, this is certainly good news for Disney and Lucasfilm. While we’re sure they were confident enough that they were making a good choice to renew it for season 2, these Emmys only back that up. Compared to the awards recognition that Star Wars’ sequel movies got (which can’t compare to something like a Best Drama nomination), this is monumental. We’re guessing there’s plenty more good Star Wars TV to come. Which, that’s a hopeful thought we’ll hang onto seeing as The Mandalorian season 2 will be heading to Disney+ on Oct. 30.
