For the second year in a row, we can confirm that The Mandalorian is absolutely one of the best series on television right now. Of course, watching the TV series is about all the proof you need to know that. But why not make it official with TV’s biggest award, an Emmy?
That’s exactly what happened over the weekend, as the Disney+ live-action series once again nailed it at the Emmys this year. Prior to the Primetime Emmy awards coming up this Sunday, The Mandalorian was the recipient of several Creative Emmys — a testament to the stunning camerawork, visuals, and other craftsmanship that goes into a series like this.
Receiving awards on both Saturday and Sunday, The Mandalorian season 2 racked up a grand total of seven Emmys, already adding to the grand number of Emmys the series won for season 1 the prior year (which, coincidentally, was also seven). Here’s what The Mandalorian took home this year:
- Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score)
- Prosthetic Makeup
- Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series (Half-Hour)
- Stunt Coordination
- Stunt Performance
- Special Visual Effects In A Season Or A Movie
- Sound Mixing For a Comedy or Drama Series (One Hour)
Other big Emmys to win…
While The Mandalorian did take home some great Creative Emmys, there are still two big ones to go. First, Giancarlo Esposito is up for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama series. He’s the only actor to be nominated in a major category. Though, Timothy Olyphant and Carl Weathers were nominated for Guest Actor in a Drama Series but lost to Courtney B. Vance (Lovecraft Country).
On top of that, it also has the honor of being nominated for one of the biggest awards of the night: Outstanding Drama Series. With the competition fairly high this year, we can’t say for certain if The Mandalorian will make it out as the winner, though. The series was nominated last year in the same category and ultimately didn’t get the win.
Of course, we’re rooting for everything Star Wars. And we’ll see how it all wraps up when the Emmys airs on Sept. 19 on CBS.
