The Mandalorian: Two More Awards for the Show
The Lucasfilm Star Wars Show on Disney+ Earns Kudos for Stunts, Special Makeup Effects
I mean, would the cast and crew of The Mandalorian have loved a shot at the “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series” category? Sure.
But sharing the spotlight with the SAG Award-winning stunt performers from Wonder Woman 1984 ain’t so bad, either.

On Sunday night, The Mandalorian was lauded for the “Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series.”

Meanwhile, all the creatures and scarring and, well, Star Warsy stuff that actors must wear to appear from a galaxy far, far away left quite an impression.
