The Mandalorian Receives 15 Emmy Nominations
Breakthrough visual effects work recognized by the Television Academy
On September 20, 2020 the Television Academy announced the nominations for the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards and Lucasfilm’s hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian was recognized with 15 nominations in a variety of categories including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Special Visual Effects.
The Mandalorian is a collaboration between some of the most creative artists and technology pioneers I’ve ever had the pleasure to work alongside. I’m absolutely thrilled that their efforts have been recognized by their industry peers, said Richard Bluff, the series’ Visual Effects Supervisor. “I’d also like to congratulations to Jon, Dave, and everyone who contributed to The Mandalorian and to all of our fellow nominees as well.”
Working with Jon Favreau’s Golem Creations, and utilizing Industrial Light & Magic’s virtual production system called ILM StageCraft, Epic’s Unreal Engine, and technology from partners such as Fuse, Profile Studios, Lux Machina, and Arri, the series was able to bring an array of Star Wars environments to life. Blending physical set pieces seamlessly with digital creations rendered and displayed in real-time allowed the actors to be photographed in The Volume on ILM’s stage at Manhattan Beach Studios, capturing a majority of the virtual stage shots entirely in-camera.
