Carano / Mando Saga ends with Emmy No-Nom; The nation shrugs its shoulders
In the interest of being truly professional opinion journalists, BCTV likes to make sure they follow through on stories, especially when they have a (happy?) Ending. So the last time we checked out what was going on with The Mandalorian exactor Gina Carano (apart from that Rangers of the New Republic question which we’ll get to in a minute), we were wondering what were the behind-the-scenes transactions that culminated in Carano’s submission of the name “Best Supporting Actress”. Considering the separation of Carano and “The Mouse,” the move was a bit surprising. Was it a union issue? A contractual problem? Someone at Disney forgets and submits a generic listing? Whatever the season, “The Mouse” learned this week that they wouldn’t be embarrassed to have to push back her nomination because she was not nominated.
Instead, nominations for “Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series” went to Gillian anderson, The crown; Helene Bonham Carter, The crown; Emerald Fennell, The crown; Ann dowd, The Handmaid’s Tale; Yvonne strahovski, The Handmaid’s Tale; Samira wiley, The Handmaid’s Tale; Madeline Brewer, The Handmaid’s Tale; and Aunjanue Ellis, Lovecraft Country. But with the big screen shots (with almost no detail) that Carano and Ben shapiro posed earlier this year, you’d think Carano was looking to bypass the Emmys for a shot at the Oscars. Or maybe a People’s Choice Awards “Participation Ribbon”?
In May, an article in Variety noted the president of Lucasfilm Kathleen kennedyupdate on Rangers of the New Republic: “not currently in active development. “Now, while” not currently in active development “doesn’t mean the project is dead, especially since the series’ narrative direction has never been officially confirmed. But speculation since that the series was first announced was that Carano’s Cara Dune would lead the series given the character’s new role as Marshall of the New Republic in Season 2 laid the groundwork for there to be something Furthermore.
Of course, that all changed when Carano launched from Lucasfilm and Disney + ‘s “Star Wars” spinoff series after months of controversial social media posts that continued to ignite the “Star Wars” universe – culminating in in an Instagram Stories post where Carano supported the idea of comparing the “persecution” she believes conservatives endure with the Jewish people in Nazi Germany. Here is a throwback to the image posted by Carano which was apparently the last straw for the streaming service – one of the expressions of free thought Carano said she would not back down if she was going to “stay true” to itself before taking it down (we’ve been doing some thoughts on it all here, here, here, here, and here).
Fans online donated Timothy Olyphantby Cobb Vanth and Katee sackhoffBo-Katan Kryze as possible new leads, although nothing official from Lucasfilm or the streaming service has been released regarding the current status of the spinoff series beyond news in the Variety article.
