The Mandalorian continues its run as one of the most acclaimed shows on television. Not only has the live-action Star Wars TV show, which debuted on Disney+ at the end of 2019, won the love and affection of the fan base, but it has also managed to win over the critics. As an example, Season 2 of the show officially earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Drama Series. It is so, so to speak.
The Golden Globe nominations were revealed today and in one of the top categories, Best Drama Series, The Mandalorian has earned a place among some of the most acclaimed shows on television. Also nominated in the category were The Crow, Lovecraft Country, Ozark and Ratched. Notably, Netflix absolutely topped the category with three of the five spots. HBO took another with JJ Abrams and Jordan Peele’s Lovecraft Country. But Disney and Lucasfilm managed to score once again as the Star Wars series continues to ride that wave. Whether or not the competition will be better at the awards ceremony later this month remains to be seen. Although it’s a hell of a victory lap for Mando and Baby Yoda.

It comes after The Mandalorian garnered 15 Emmy nominations last year, picking up seven wins. Season 2 of the show debuted late last year and picked up where Season 1 left off. Once again, executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have found a winning formula. Ahsoka Tano’s live debut. More Darksaber. The return of Boba Fett after decades of waiting. And the unexpected return of a certain Star Wars legend in the finale. It all made for a television season that garnered near-universal praise. Favreau had this to say about it in a statement.
“We are honored to be recognized by the Life Foreign Press Association alongside so many incredible performances. We are extremely fortunate to work with such a singular team of collaborators and artists who bring this show to life. In the name of Kathy [Kennedy], Dave and the entire Mandalorian team, thank you for this honor. ”
The cast includes Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito, with Rosario Dawson portraying Ahsoka Tano. Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, Carl Weathers, Peyton Reed, and Robert Rodriguez served as directors for season 2. Favreau serves as showrunner, with Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson also on board as executive producers.
Lucasfilm is currently churning out a huge slate of new Star Wars shows, thanks in large part to the success of The Mandalorian. Andor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka, New Republic Rangers, Boba Fett’s Book, The Acolyte, and more are on the way. The Mandalorian season 3 is set to begin production in April. Several of these shows are expected to culminate in a massive crossover event down the line. The 78th annual Golden Globe Awards airs on NBC on February 28. This news comes to us via StarWars.com.
