Star Wars Resistance, which ended its two-season run on January 26, picked up its second-straight Emmy nomination for Outstanding Children's Program.

Cast and crew for both The Mandalorian and Star Wars Resistance took to social media to express their excitement:

For those eagerly awaiting the fun of awards season, the Emmy nominations represent some sense of normalcy as the future of Hollywood remains uncertain due to COVID-19. Despite both the Golden Globes and the Oscars postponing their presentations by months, the Emmy Awards will carry on with a virtual show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, providing us with a much-needed distraction.

At this time, it's unknown how winners will accept their awards, but, for now, we'll cross our fingers that Baby Yoda accepts an award via Zoom.
