Emmy Winner Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie

Nominees are listed in alphabetical order. Only limited series contenders submit episodes. Beware of minor spoilers for listed episodes.

The nominees: Thomas Brodie-Sangster (The Queen’s Gambit), Daveed Diggs (Hamilton), Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You), Jonathan Groff (Hamilton), Evan Peters (Mare of Easttown), Anthony Ramos (Hamilton)

All six men in this category are first-time nominees. Brodie-Sangster, Essiedu, and Peters all got to submit episodes for consideration – Adjournment, That Was Fun, and Enter Number Two, respectively – which give them all great showcases. I was thrilled to get to interview both Brodie-Sangster and Diggs, so please check out those great conversations. I think Diggs might be out front here, but it’s possible that Peters can pull far enough ahead of his fellow nominees.

Who should win: Brodie-Sangster, Essiedu, or Peters. I like Diggs and Groff a lot but I don’t think the performances are different from the ones that already won them Tonys.
Who will win: I’m going with Diggs.
