Emmy Nominees: Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

My predictions: 5/8

Here we have eight slots and only three shows, which is a bit startling even if it was somewhat expected. I’m glad to see Madeline Brewer (The Handmaid’s Tale) recognized alongside past nominees Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale), Samira Wiley (The Handmaid’s Tale), and Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid’s Tale), besting the show’s previous three-nomination get in this category. Next up was Emerald Fennell (The Crown), getting a boost from her Oscar win for “Promising Young Woman” to join Gillian Anderson (The Crown) and Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown), sadly leaving Erin Doherty out in the cold. And, most surprisingly, Aunjanie Ellis (Lovecraft Country) was her show’s nominee rather than Wunmi Mosaku. There really is a lot of talent here even if I wouldn’t have chosen all of these performers over others.

Who should win? Anderson
Who will win? This should still go to Anderson without much trouble.
