For your consideration… Disney is trying hard to get the Mandalorian some love at the Emmy Awards. WWE Superstar Sasha Banks might just find herself with a nomination as well.

The 2021 Emmy Awards aren’t coming until September 19th, but they have the Summer to politick for some nominations. Disney sent out a blast to the committee and it listed off several people who could be up for awards. Sasha Banks was on that list.

In a graphic obtained by The Direct, Mercedes Varnado is listed as a guest star that could get an Emmy nom. If Banks can score this nomination it would be pretty epic, especially considering how much WWE wants an Emmy Award themselves.

Banks played Koska Reeves on the Mandalorian series, a role tailor-made for her by Jon Favreau, and Banks was more than happy to accept the role. She had to make the filming schedule work as she jetted across the country between WWE gigs, but she got it done.


All of that hard work on the Mandalorian could see that Disney+ series get any number of Emmy nominations. We will have to see if the committee agrees that Mercedes Varnado gets a nod out of the deal as well.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
