Julia Garner: Emmy record territory with 3rd win for Ozark
After winning back-to-back Emmys for Best Dramatic Supporting Actress for her role as firecracker Ruth Langmore in “Ozark” in 2019 and 2020, Julia Garnier is currently tied with seven other artists as the third most nominated actor in the category. If she now got a third statuette for the Netflix drama’s fourth and final season, she’d be entering Emmy-record territory by tying Ellen Corby (“The Waltons”) to three wins – although Nancy Merchant (“Lou Grant”) would remain the all-time class leader with four wins.
Here are the seven people Garner is currently tied with as the third most decorated actor in the category with two wins:
1. Bonnie Bartlett: “St. Elsewhere” (1986-87)
2. Tyne Daly: “Christy” (1996) and “Judging Amy” (2003)
3. Blythe Danner: “Huff” (2005-06)
4. Anna Gunn: “Breaking Bad” (2013-14)
5. Allison Janney: “The West Wing” (2000-01)
6. Kristy McNichol: “Family” (1977, 1979)
7. Maggie Smith: “Downton Abbey” (2012, 2016)
Of this group, the only two actors not to receive additional nominations in this category are Danner and Janney, but that’s because “Huff” only lasted two seasons and Janney competed at the top – where she won. converted two of four offers into wins – for ‘The West Wing’ from 2002. Daly has the most additional offers with one for ‘Christy’ (1995) and five for ‘Judging Amy’ (2000-02, 2004- 05), followed by Smith, who picked up two more names for ‘Downton Abbey’ (2013-14). The other three all picked up one more name each for their aforementioned series – Bartlett in 1988; Gunn in 2012; and Mc Nicholas in 1978.
As of this writing, Garner, who ranks second in our Dramatic Supporting Actress ratings, is poised to follow in the footsteps of Barlett, Gunn and McNichol in landing a third name for “Ozark,” but will she be able to pull off that those three weren’t actually three for three for the wins? Although Corby and Marchand managed to land the third – and in Marchand’s case, the fourth – Emmys for “The Waltons” (1973, 1975-76) and “Lou Grant” (1978, 1980-82), respectively, they did it under a completely different voting system. By winning a third time for “Ozark,” Garner would accomplish a completely unprecedented feat, as no actor in any acting category has won three Emmys for a show since the television academy moved from a ranked ballot. to a popular voting system to select the winners. in 2016.

But if you had to bet on someone to ultimately pull off that hat trick, the smart money would probably be on Garner. Picking up two wins is no small feat for the 28-year-old entertainer, notably the only “Ozark” cast member to win an acting Emmy for the show. (co-starring jason batman also won a trophy, but for the showmanship.)
Now she’s hot after the release of the fourth installment of the series, whose 14 episodes have been split into two parts, which debuted on January 21 and April 29. The shrewd exit strategy allowed Garner to keep the buzz going throughout the second half of this year. Emmy cycle. That buzz coupled with the fact that this is voters’ last chance to recognize Garner for playing Ruth could be just what she needs to get knocked down for this season – one that’s essentially an extended Emmy clip for the actor.
It doesn’t hurt that this year also saw Garner take on a completely different role in another ultra-popular Netflix title, “Inventing Anna”. Released February 11, the true-crime limited series came at the perfect time, sandwiched between the two parts of the final “Ozark” release, and stars Garner as the Soho crook. Anna Delvey. Regardless of whether the actor, who currently sits in eighth place in our Limited Series/TV Movie Actress Ratings, ends up landing a name for the series, her punch on two of towering but polar opposite performances could give her an extra boost for “Ozark”.
Rounding out the Top 8 of our Dramatic Supporting Actress Ratings are Sarah Snook (“Succession”) in pole position, Jung Ho Yeon (“Squid Game”) in third place, J. Smith-Cameron (“Succession”) in fourth, Rhea Seehorn (“Better Call Saul”) in fifth, Christine Ricci (“Yellow Vests”) in sixth, Julianna Margulies (“The Morning Show”) in seventh and Sydney Sweeney (“Euphoria”) in eighth.
