The Force is strong with The Mandalorian! The Child may not win “Best Actor” anytime soon, but Baby Yoda is part of a critically acclaimed series.

Earlier today, the Star Wars series received 15 Emmy Awards nominations. It’s surprising to see it recognized as a drama series. The list of nominations are for some of the following:

  • Taika Waititi’s performance as IG-11
  • Actor Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon
  • Production design
  • Special visual effects
  • Stunt coordination.

The first live-action Star Wars series, “The Mandalorian” is also the first Star Wars show to land a nomination in one of the top Primetime Emmy categories. The animated “Star Wars Rebels” and “Star Wars Resistance” have both landed Creative Arts Emmy nominations, while “Star Wars: Clone Wars” won the Emmy for animated program (one hour or more) in 2004 and 2005.


“The Mandalorian’s” nominations are a win for the franchise — “Star Wars” films are often only recognized in the craft categories at the Oscars. 1977’s “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope,” has been the most decorated of the franchise when it comes to the Academy Awards, and is the only film to land nods in categories such as best picture, director (George Lucas), original screenplay (Lucas) and supporting actor (Alec Guinness). The last “Star Wars” film to win an Oscar was 1983’s “Return of the Jedi.”
