‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Receives Three People’s Choice Award Nominations


Nominees for the 2022 People’s Choice Awards, an award show which garners votes from the general public, were revealed this morning. Lucasfilm’s Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi received three nods.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is set 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat — the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader. The series sees the return of both Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen in their iconic roles.

The show was nominated in the following categories:

  • Show of 2022
  • Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show of 2022
  • Male TV Star of 2022

Winners of the People’s Choice Awards, which are to be hosted by Kenan Thompson, will be announced on Tuesday, December 6 on NBC and E!. Voting is now open.

All six episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi are now streaming exclusively on Disney+, along with the behind-the-scenes special A Jedi’s Return. Catch up on all of our coverage on the series, including our review, episodic recaps, and more.

McGregor has been making the rounds at several conventions this year, including FAN EXPO Boston, where he spent his Q&A panel discussing various facets of his career, most notably his time spent in the Star Wars universe.

In case you missed it, check out our interview with Bonnie Piesse, who reprised her role as Aunt Beru for the show.

Lindsey joined the Nerds and Beyond team in 2018. If she's not writing or out and about with her camera, she's probably watching anime, nerding out over Star Wars, reading manga, and definitely forgetting to water her plants. And waiting for the Genshin loading screen to pop up. Contact: lindsey@nerdsandbeyond.com
