How many Emmy nominations did the Mandalorian get?

The "Star Wars" live-action spin-off "The Mandalorian" on the streaming service Disney Plus received a whopping 24 nominations in 19 categories for the 2021 Emmy Awards, tying with Netflix royal family drama "The Crown," that also received 24 nominations.

The best sci-fi from the last 12 months received little attention, sadly .

The full list for "The Mandalorian" is as follows:

While these are great choices, it might have been nice to see Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano nominated.

Arguably one of the most important categories in our opinion and sadly the quality of "Star Trek" is currently such that it's unlikely to soon appear in this category, but what about "For All Mankind" or "The Expanse"..? Filoni and Favreau go up against "Lovecraft Country," "FX Pose," "The Crown," "The Handmaid's Tail" and "The Boys" each of which only have one nomination.

Joe Bauer, Richard Bluff, Abbigail Keller, Hickel, Roy K. Cancino, John Knoll, Enrico Damm, John Rosengrant and Joseph Kasparian.

However, Netflix's excellent animated series "Love, Death + Robots" did receive two nominations ... so that's good news.

For the episode "Ice" (S01, E02).

Brad North, Craig Henighan, Dawn Lunsford, Jeff Charbonneau and Alicia Stevens for the episode "Snow in the Desert" (S02, E04).

Emmy Nominations 2021 Full List (complete) | EW.com

EW.com 14 July, 2021 - 07:11am

On Tuesday morning, the Emmy-winning father-daughter duo Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us) and Jasmine Cephas Jones (#FreeRayshawn) unveiled the nominations for the 73rd Emmy Awards.

The Crown and The Mandalorian led the way with a whopping 24 nominations each, with WandaVision, Ted Lasso, and The Handmaid's Tale also coming in strong. And not to be forgotten, just a week after not being renewed for a second season by HBO, Lovecraft Country scared up 18 total nominations.

The Television Academy's Board of Governors recently announced a small but notable rule change for this year's Emmys to be more inclusive of gender-noncomforming individuals: A nominee or winner of any acting category can request they be recognized with the more gender-neutral title "Performer" on their nomination certificate and Emmy statuette, although the categories themselves relating to Actor and Actress won't change.

Check below for an extended list of this year's nominees, with the remaining categories available on the Emmys website.

The Emmy Awards will air Sunday, Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS and be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.

The Winners and Losers of the 2021 Emmy Nominations

The Ringer 13 July, 2021 - 01:16pm

The year of Jean Smart continues while chaos reigns and Lin-Manuel Miranda somehow makes it 2016 again

The Golden Globes’ future remains uncertain in the wake of the organization’s latest controversies. In its absence, it seemed unlikely that any award show would match the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s brand of chaotic energy. But then this year’s Emmy nominations came along. While shows like The Crown and Ted Lasso predictably dominated, they were joined by a healthy number of WTF inclusions like the critically derided Emily in Paris, Netflix’s supposedly enduring The Kominsky Method, an already canceled HBO series, and (presumably) the embalmed corpse of William H. Macy slowly decomposing over the final season of Shameless. (They also threw a nomination at Don Cheadle for his barely there guest appearance in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, the sort of celebrity-chasing the Globes perfected years ago.) This year’s Emmy nominees are undeniably compelling, but perhaps not in the way that the Television Academy intended. Like, I’m pretty sure some of these voters haven’t actually watched TV.

It was a foregone conclusion that the feel-good show of 2020, Ted Lasso, would get some love from the Television Academy. (It’s probably not a coincidence that GQ just so happened to publish a glowing Jason Sudeikis profile the same morning as the nominations.) But the extent to which Ted Lasso dominated the comedy categories was greater than even its biggest supporters might’ve dreamed of: All told, the show earned 20 Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series and a whopping six (!) nods in the supporting actor categories alone. The Lasso Effect is real, and with the soon-to-be-released second season already earning a similar wave of critical plaudits, don’t be surprised if Ted Lasso—and Jason Sudeikis’s tasteful hoodie collection—dominates the Emmys for years to come.

Small Axe is hard to categorize: It’s an anthology that amounts to five thematically connected movies from Steve McQueen that just so happened to stream on Amazon, which submitted it for the Emmys. We don’t need to start another exhausting “is it TV or film?” debate here, but the fact that Small Axe was Emmys-eligible and didn’t garner a single nomination is one of the year’s glaring omissions. However you want to categorize it, Small Axe and McQueen deserved their due.

When the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally dipped its toes into the world of television this year, Emmy accolades probably weren’t the first thing on Kevin Feige’s mind. (No shade, but I’m pretty sure everyone at Marvel cares mostly about Disney+ subscriber growth.) But it’s a testament to the MCU’s early success in moving to the small screen that its first Disney+ series, WandaVision, ended up garnering the third-most Emmy nominations with 23, highlighted by a nod for Outstanding Limited Series. Meanwhile, Amazon’s The Boys was a rather unexpected inclusion in the Outstanding Drama Series category—if only because this is the kind of show in which a guy named Love Sausage nearly strangles someone to death with his [clears throat] love sausage. Let’s hear it for The Boys, WandaVision, and superheroes continuing to make a splash at the Emmys after Watchmen’s domination last year.

As the inclusion of Lovecraft Country and The Boys underlines, the drama category noticeably lacked strong, perennial contenders. Because of COVID-related production delays, the latest seasons of Stranger Things, Better Call Saul, Ozark, Killing Eve, and reigning Outstanding Drama Series winner Succession have yet to premiere. It wouldn’t have been surprising if all five of those shows would’ve made the cut had their new seasons aired in time. Instead, the Emmys might as well roll out the red carpet for The Crown, which aired a terrific(ally eligible) fourth season, is tied with The Mandalorian for the most nominations with 24, and already has 10 Emmys to its name. It feels like a foregone conclusion that The Crown will net Outstanding Drama Series, and aside from being a worthy winner, that’d also be a huge relief for Netflix.

Despite its original programs being Emmys mainstays ever since the early days of House of Cards, the streamer has yet to win an Emmy for Outstanding Drama, Comedy, or Limited Series. There’s never been a better time for Netflix to nab a victory in a main category. Even if it comes at the expense of any semblance of competition for The Crown, I highly doubt Ted Sarandos and Co. will complain about it.

I don’t have anything against the folks who love Hamilton, but Lin-Manuel Miranda’s production has no business being up for 12 Emmys this year. Technically, yes, Hamilton was eligible in certain categories: It counts as a prerecorded variety special, and because it’s longer than 75 minutes, its actors could compete in the Limited Series or TV Movie acting categories. But Hamilton’s Emmys mean that other worthy Limited Series or Movie performances were edged out by seven Broadway actors who are being acknowledged for work they did in 2016. (A few notable casualties: Thuso Mbedu for The Underground Railroad, Ethan Hawke for The Good Lord Bird, and John Boyega for Small Axe.) Hamilton has already won Tonys, a Grammy, and even a Pulitzer—adding Emmys to its list of accolades is totally unnecessary and outdated. But since they’re part of this year’s ceremony, I’m not throwing away my shot to dunk on them.

So, about that canceled HBO show: The network might be done with Lovecraft Country, but the Emmys still had plenty of love to dole out for it. The horror series is up for 18 Emmys, including Outstanding Drama Series, which feels like it has less to do with Lovecraft Country itself than it does with the dearth of quality shows eligible this year. (I’m sorry, but the series was a mess, and even the network seems to agree.) But hey, everyone’s a winner here: HBO gets to luxuriate in some Emmy nominations for another one of its series, while Lovecraft Country showrunner Misha Green has already moved on to sign a multiyear deal with AppleTV+.

The Outstanding Variety Talk Series category has grown increasingly stale, with the same late-night shows getting recognized year in and year out. (You don’t need me to tell you that Last Week Tonight With John Oliver got another nom.) And while it’s nice to see Conan up for an Emmy in its final year on TBS, the continued absence of Showtime’s Desus & Mero is an absolute travesty. Quite simply, there’s no one funnier in the late-night television landscape than Desus Nice and the Kid Mero—honestly, it’s not even close. The brand is strong, even if the Emmys are blind to it.

If there’s a single actor who has defined the first half of television in 2021, it’s Jean Smart. Pulling double duty between Mare of Easttown and Hacks, Smart has excelled equally in moments of fruit-chopping levity and excruciating, fish-chopping dramatic tension. It’s only right, then, that the Emmys rewarded Smart with nominations for both performances. Smart does have fierce competition in both acting categories: She’s up for Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie alongside Mare costar Julianne Nicholson; the going won’t be much easier in the Best Actress in a Comedy category, where she’ll be up against Kaley Cuoco’s endearingly chaotic work in The Flight Attendant. But that’s a discussion for another day. As far as the Emmy nominations are concerned, it’s Jean Smart’s world, and we’re just living in it.

The biggest Emmy snubs and surprises of 2021

The A.V. Club 13 July, 2021 - 01:07pm

The livestream was on the shorter side, a decision that may have been made to keep the event free of the glitches that made 2020’s reveals such an interesting affair. But there were still plenty of surprises to be had this year, including a strong showing for the recently canceled Lovecraft Country. Misha Green’s adaptation of Matt Ruff’s 2016 novel was one of the buzziest shows of last summer, but it can still be easy for shows to get lost in the din of ever-peaking TV. And yet, the horror-drama hybrid scored 18 nominations total, and will compete in the Outstanding Drama category.

As in most years, there were thrilling surprises and equally confounding snubs. For every delight—Jean Smart earned nominations for Hacks and Mare Of Easstown—there was some big letdown, like The Underground Railroad’s single nomination. Here, The A.V. Club’s TV editor Danette Chavez and staff writer Saloni Gajjar dig into some of the Emmy voters’ best calls and biggest oversights.

Reneé Elise Goldsberry scored an Emmy nomination for Hamilton, but her Girls5eva performance is a dazzling display of physical comedy and biting dialogue delivery. Her heightened diva persona, Wickie Roy, fills the Peacock series with endless one-liners, memorable gags, and surprising emotional twists, all of which Goldsberry brings to life without missing a beat. The actress and singer is a comedic discovery as she balances Wickie’s fortitude and vulnerability with an air of superiority. It’s a shame the Television Academy overlooked her talent in this category (and the show itself). [Saloni Gajjar]

The limited series categories continue to be the tightest races at the Emmys, as A-list talent keep on flocking to these productions from top-tier producers. But that’s precisely why we’re flabbergasted by the TV Academy leaving The Underground Railroad’s Thuso Mbedu off of the list of nominees for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited/Anthology Series or TV Movie. You don’t get much more top-notch than an Oscar winner like Barry Jenkins; there was nothing “limited” about his TV epic other than its number of seasons. The Underground Railroad was rightly nominated for Outstanding Limited or Anthology series, but Mbedu’s simmering portrayal of Cora is one of its greatest strengths. She could have easily taken Cynthia Erivo’s spot, even if the latter did play the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. [Danette Chavez]
