The Creative Arts Emmys have come and gone and "The Mandalorian" did not disappoint! Check out Ioana's recap of what happened.

Season 1 of Jon Favreau’s Star Wars show, The Mandalorian, was the biggest star on Wednesday at the Creative Arts Emmys, winning 5 awards. Being a show that combines both digital and practical effects, it was a nostalgic delight for sure for Emmy voters. Industrial Light & Magic’s (ILM) new technologies are, and have always been, a showcase of evolution and are an important part of VFX history.

The Emmy awards went to Richard Bluff, VFX supervisor; Jason Porter, VFX supervisor; Abbigail Keller, VFX producer; Hayden Jones, VFX supervisor; Hal Hickel, animation supervisor; Roy Cancino, special effects supervisor;  John Rosengrant, supervisor; Enrico Damm, environment supervisor; and Landis Fields, virtual production visualization supervisor. Accepting the award, Richard Bluff of ILM thanked Favreau and Fioni, as well as Lucasfilm and ILM.

The Mandalorian had a strong showing during Wednesday’s Creative Arts Emmy virtual presentation, also winning Emmy awards for cinematography, production design, sound editing, and sound mixing. Supervising sound editors Matthew Wood and David Acord were Oscar-nominated earlier this year for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Don’t forget that this is only the beginning. The Primetime Emmy Awards take place of September 21 and we here at What’s New On Jakku hope we’ll get to celebrate more awards for this great show, and we can’t wait for Season 2!
