In all, Star Wars shows earned 22 nominations: nine for The Mandalorian, eight for Andor, and five for Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Since The Mandalorian premiered on Disney in 2019, Star Wars has become a small but consistent force at the Emmys, with The Mandalorian earning nods for Outstanding Drama Series in 2020 and 2021. Still, Star Wars didn’t score a single acting nomination this year, despite Emmy buzz for Andor stars Diego Luna and Stellan Skarsgard. In past years, Giancarlo Esposito, Timothy Olyphant, and Carl Weathers all earned acting nominations for The Mandalorian.

Still, residents of a galaxy far, far away weren’t totally snubbed: The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal scored three nominations in all, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for The Last of Us, Outstanding Guest Actor for Saturday Night Live, and Outstanding Narrator for his CNN doc Patagonia: Life on the Edge of the World.
