    The Mandalorian season 2 continues to receive its many well-deserved nominations during awards season. Even though the big night for television (the Emmys) is still a few months away, the rest of the bodies in charge of handing out prestigious awards are revealing their nominees now. Today it was time for the Director's Guild of America (DGA), who nominated Jon Favreau for his Outstanding Directorial Achievement helming Chapter 9: The Marshal.



    The second season of The Mandalorian had seven directors for its eight chapters (Peyton Reed directed both Chapter 10 and Chapter 16), and all of them did an incredible job with each of their episodes. But giving the nomination to the creator and showrunner of the show feels just right, though they didn't do it just for that reason. The krayt dragon sequence from The Marshal is one of the best-directed sequences of this past year in television, so his nomination is very well-deserved.



    Favreau will be competing against Jason Bateman, who was nominated for the episode Wartime on Netflix's Ozark, Vince Gilligan, who helmed Bargman from AMC's Better Call Saul, Lesli Linka Glatter, who directed the episode Prisoners of War from Homeland, and finally, Julie Anne Robinson, for the episode Diamond of the First Water from Netflix's Bridgerton.



    The DGA Awards ceremony will take place on April 10, and it will be a virtual one. Congratulations to all the nominees.

    Good job. And nice pic with Pedro. Although I disagree with Pedro, I don't want him cancelled.

    Last person I canceled was Mel Gibson... I'll never watch his films again, so I don't wanna know what Pedro said, can't wait for the next season of Mando :cool:

    I wholeheartedly agree with Jon Favreau's best directing nod for The Marshal. But his showrunner buddy, Dave Filoni, was equally deserving IMHO for his direction of The Jedi episode.

    One of the amazing things about the first two seasons of The Mandalorian is that there's not a poorly directed episode in the whole bunch.
