The Academy, like the rest of the world, loves Baby Yoda. Jon Favreau’sThe Mandalorian took home five statuettes, leading the way on the third night of the Creative Arts Emmys.
The Star Wars spin-off started the night off winning Outstanding Visual Effects, which was the first Emmy ever for Disney+. From there, the series went on to win trophies for Outstanding Cinematography For A Single-Camera Series (Half-Hour), Outstanding Sound Mixing For a Comedy or Drama Series (Half-Hour) and Animation, Outstanding Sound Editing for a Comedy or Drama Series (Half-Hour) and Animation and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program (Half-Hour). As a brand new streamer, this year marks the first year of eligibility for Disney+. All in all, The Mandalorian has racked up a staggering 15 Emmy nominations.
With its traction, it is more than likely The Mandalorian will collect more Emmys on Thursday and Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmys ceremony as well as Sunday’s big ceremony.
The Mandalorian is also up for Outstanding Drama Series as well as Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance for Taika Waitti’s role as droid IG-11 and Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series for Giancarlo Esposito’s performance as Moff Gideon.
The series is set five years after the 1983 Star Wars movie Return of the Jedi, follows a bounty hunter, who is protecting a highly coveted Jedi-powered being, simply called The Child, from falling into the hands of the villainous Imperial Empire. The bounty hunter is from the same rogue warrior class as legacy Star Wars character Jango Fett.
