When it comes to this year’s Emmy nominees for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, eight is (just barely) enough.
For the third year in a row, we have eight nominees crammed into this very competitive category… and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s Alex Borstein is trying to notch a third straight win for playing gruff manager Susie Myerson. She’s not the only former winner in the mix, though: SNL‘s Kate McKinnon is up for the seventh (!) straight year, including a pair of wins in 2016 and 2017.
Two more familiar faces from last year’s nominee list are back, as well, with GLOW star Betty Gilpin nabbing a third straight nod for playing lady wrestler Debbie Eagan, and Borstein’s Maisel co-star Marin Hinkle up again for playing Midge’s mom, Rose Weissman. They’re joined by a quartet of first-time nominees: Schitt’s Creek standout Annie Murphy, who plays the hopelessly self-involved Alexis Rose; The Good Place‘s D’Arcy Carden, finally breaking through in her final season as perky virtual assistant Janet; Insecure‘s Yvonne Orji, who plays Issa’s estranged BFF Molly; and McKinnon’s SNL co-star Cecily Strong.
So does Borstein deserve to make it three-for-three? Or is it time for one of the other ladies to take home the trophy? We want to hear from you: Vote for your favorite in the poll below, then hit the comments to defend your pick.
