Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Tuesday, July 12th. As always, chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: Gillian Anderson, Madeline Brewer, Helena Bonham Carter, Ann Dowd, Aunjanue Ellis, Emerald Fennell, Yvonne Strahovski, Samira Wiley

The competition: Not a single one of last year’s nominees is eligible this year. But a number of women nominated the last time they were are back in contention, like Sarah Snook (Succession), Julia Garner (Ozark), and Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve). It’s also worth keeping an eye on past nominees Chrissy Metz (This Is Us) and Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), though Brown may be eclipsed by her popular costar Sadie Sink (Stranger Things). Strong contenders from returning shows include J. Smith-Cameron (Succession), Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria), Julianna Margulies (The Morning Show), and Glenn Close (Tehran), with Patricia Arquette (Severance), Christina Ricci (Yellowjackets), Jung Ho-yeon (Squid Game), and Yuh-jung Youn (Pachinko) at the top of the list of new contenders. I wouldn’t count out Christine Baranski (The Gilded Age), DenĂ©e Benton (The Gilded Age), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Loki), Sophia Di Martino (Loki). And what does Rhea Seehorn (Better Call Saul) have to do to get nominated? I’m not predicting her but would be thrilled to be wrong.

The predicted nominees: Arquette, Garner, Ho-yeon, Metz, Ricci, Smith-Cameron, Snook, Sweeney

The predicted winner: I think Garner triumphs again.
