As the fifth night of the Creative Arts Emmy’s comes to a close, The Mandalorian, which earned six Emmy trophies, closed out the night with its seventh win.
The hit Star Wars series won the award for for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Drama Series, Limited Series or Movie.
The Mandalorian now has won Emmy’s for Visual Effects, Cinematography, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Production Design, and Score. Sadly, Giancarlo Esposito did not win for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his role as the villainous Moff Gideon in episode 8.
Tomorrow night is the big show, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. The Mandalorian is still up for Best Outstanding Drama Series. The series was up for a total of 15 awards, so the fact The Mandalorian and Disney+, in its first year of eligibility, were able to take home seven-plus awards is quite an accomplishment.
The Mandalorian and the Child continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire.
