The Mandalorian received a nomination as “Best Television Series (Drama)” for the upcoming Golden Globes earlier today! The other nominees in the category are “The Crown”, “Ozark”, “Ratched” and “Lovecraft Country”.
Last year The Mandalorian was completely overlooked by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that awards the Golden Globes. The HFPA is an organization of ca. 90 foreign journalists who report on US entertainment news for foreign media.
Do you still care about these award shows? The Golden Globes have somewhat of a shifty reputation in entertainment circles, because a club of fewer than 100 journalists from countries like Russia, India, South Korea, Bangladesh, Austria or Germany decide on who wins what and earning a membership in the organization is somewhat of an intransparent process. But a Golden Globe win is still coveted by most in Hollywood. However, the only memorable thing about last year’s Golden Globes was certainly Ricky Gervais’ roast of Hollywood actors and few probably remember any of the winners. Unfortunately Gervais won’t host the show this year, instead Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will co-host. The Golden Globes will be awarded on February 28th. Will you watch the show to see if The Mandalorian can win?
Ewan McGregor won a Golden Globe for his role in the third season of Fargo on Sunday, but the subject of Obi-Wan Kenobi quickly came up when he took questions from the media. McGregor reiterated that he would be happy to return to the role but said, “There’s no plan at the moment.” Ewan looked the part though. His beard certainly conjured up images of his Obi-Wan Kenobi days. Click through to watch a video from Variety for McGregor’s full comments, including his thoughts on The Last Jedi.
