The 2020 Emmy nominations have just been announced, and Star Wars fans will be very happy to hear that Disney+'s The Mandalorian has picked up a nom for Outstanding Drama Series.

The first season of the live-action Star Wars show was a big hit with fans and critics, but it's still somewhat surprising that it's been recognized by The Emmys - especially in such a major category. Giancarlo Esposito, who played Moff Gideon in the season finale, was also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series.

In addition, HBO's Watchmen picked up some big nominations, with Regina King, Jean Smart, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jeremy Irons, Jovan Adepo, and Louis Gossett Jr. all scoring acting noms in their respective categories. The show was also nominated for Outstanding Limited Series, and actually received the most nods altogether with 26.

You can watch Saturday Night Live's Leslie Jones announce the nominees in the video below, or keep scrolling for the full rundown.
