Without question the highlight of the nominations go to Andor which received a nomination for Outstanding Drama Series alongside heavy hitters such as Better Call Saul, The Crown, The Last of Us, House of the Dragon, Succession, The White Lotus and Yellowjackets. Andor picked up eight nominations in prestigious categories and Obi-Wan Kenobi landed a high profile nomination for Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series where it’s up against Beef, Dahmer, Daisy Jones and the Six and Fleishman is in Trouble, as well as landing an additional four nominations.
