Emmy Winner Predictions: Best Supporting Actress 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: RenĂ©e Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton), Kathryn Hahn (WandaVision), Moses Ingram (The Queen’s Gambit), Julianne Nicholson (Mare of Easttown), Jean Smart (Mare of Easttown), Phillipa Soo (Hamilton)

Hahn was previously nominated for “Transparent,” and Smart is a double nominee this year, contending also for “Hacks.” She has nine previous nominations and three wins. The other four are all first-time nominees. Hahn and Ingram got to submit episodes – End Game and Breaking the Fourth Wall – while both Nicholson and Smart chose the same installment, Sacrament. I’m not sure that necessarily cancels them out, but it is a bit strange. I think Hahn is very popular, and she would be a great and deserving choice.

Who should win: Hahn
Who will win: I think Hahn can win, but watch out for Nicholson or, if “Hamilton” sweeps, Goldsberry.
