AFT Awards: Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

This is the sixth category of the 12th Annual AFT Television Awards, my personal choices for the best in television during the 2017-2018 season. This year, I’m including a shorter list, with just nominees and a few finalists, if applicable. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them.

Last year’s nominees: Nina Arianda, Carly Chaikin, Grace Gummer, Thandie Newton, Aubrey Plaza

Emmy nominees: Alexis Bledel, Millie Bobby Brown, Ann Dowd, Lena Headey, Vanessa Kirby, Thandie Newton, Yvonne Strahovski

Finalists: Jane Adams (Sneaky Pete), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Sadie Sink (Stranger Things), Aubrey Plaza (Legion)

The nominees:

Thandie Newton (Westworld)
Ann Dowd (Good Behavior)
Alexis Bledel (The Handmaid's Tale)
Susan Kelechi Watson (This Is Us)

The winner:

Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid’s Tale) transformed a character who had been an unapologetic villain into someone far more complex and full of contradictions that made her question her life choices.
