The inaugural Hollywood Critics Association (HCA) TV Awards are rapidly approaching, and the official list of nominees has finally been revealed! The awards ceremony will pay tribute to the best of television, and it will also be the first of its kind to separate broadcast/cable programming from streaming.
Disney+’s epic live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, has received a total of four nominations. The Mandalorian follows the adventures of a lone bounty hunter named Din Djarin as he explores the outer reaches of a post-Empire galaxy (and makes quite a few friends and enemies along the way).
First and foremost, The Mandalorian has been nominated for Best Streaming Series, Drama.
Pedro Pascal leads the series as the skilled, mysterious, and endearing Din Djarin. Pascal has been nominated for Best Actor in a Streaming Series, Drama, though we’d also like to see him leading a category called Best Adoptive Space Dad. (Look back on Din’s best lines from season 2 with us!)
Meanwhile, Giancarlo Esposito has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Streaming Series, Drama for his villainous portrayal of Moff Gideon. (Leave Grogu alone!)
Finally, Ming-Na Wen has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Streaming Series, Drama for her portrayal of the elite mercenary Fennec Shand.
Brooklynn Prince and Mckenna Grace announced the full list of nominees today via livestream. Watch the video below.
The HCA TV Awards will take place in person on Sunday, August 22 in Los Angeles, California at the Avalon Hollywood. Meanwhile, the next HCA Film Awards ceremony is due to take place on Saturday, January 8, 2022.
