Last night, the Hollywood Critics Association (HCA) held its first-ever HCA TV Awards, which due to COVID-19 ended up being a virtual ceremony. There, The Mandalorian was awarded the grand prize of Best Streaming Series, Drama, winning over critics’ favorites like The Crown or Handmaid’s Tale.
Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni accepted the award through a pre-recorded video, shot from their respective houses. In the acceptance speeches, Filoni thanked both Kathleen Kennedy, for her support, and George Lucas, for creating the galaxy far, far away we all love. Favreau thanked the HCA, Lucasfilm, Disney Plus, their families, their reps, and especially the audience.
Also don’t forget that in just a few weeks The Mandalorian season 2 will face its fiercest competition — on September 18-19, the live-action Star Wars series will compete for 24 Emmy Awards in 19 different categories, including Best Drama Series. We will keep you posted as those awards unfold.
Check out the ceremony here. The Mandalorian wins its award at 41:30 (the timestamp is already set):
