The Handmaid’s Story: Can Elisabeth Moss Beat Emma Corrin for the Emmy?



During the Emmy nomination phase, Elisabeth Mousse was no higher than third place in the ratings for Best Dramatic Actress, and no expert predicted her to win. What a difference 21 appointments make. Moss is now in second place for the victory of “The Handmaid’s Tale”, behind the favorite Emma Corrin for “The Crown”, and has several # 1 picks to win.

As of this writing, an expert, two editors and two of our 24 top users predict a second dramatic actress victory for Moss, who had already won the first season of “Handmaid’s” in 2017. She was nominated for the second season but was surprisingly snubbed for the third installment last year.

His loss for the second season was also surprising. She was expected to defend her crown, but “Handmaid’s”, the then reigning drama series champion, had a disappointing night overall as she lost all five categories in the main ceremony. Moss was dethroned by “The Crown’s” Claire Foy, but now she can get revenge and get mad at Netflix’s royal drama.

It’s safe to say that few expected “Handmaid’s” to re-explode with 21 nominations this year, especially since he “only” got 10 last year, his highest total. low ever – even the three orphan episodes of Season 2 landed 11 deals in 2019. Season 4 is considered Hulu’s best dystopian drama since its first season catching the zeitgeist, and Moss, who has directed three episodes, won praise throughout the season for her performance, but the question remained whether Emmy voters were still paying attention, given that last year’s nomination campaign – and the snub from Moss – suggested they could move on from the aging series. But they were careful – of course, COVID-19 sidelining a number of series probably had something to do with it – and rewarded him with 21 offers, including 10 to play. Once again, “Handmaid’s” got 10 nominations in total last year.

Like Moss, who beat Foy for the Emmy in 2017, Foy received some of the best reviews of her career for “The Crown” and she had beaten Moss at the Screen Actors Guild Awards earlier in 2018 for her second consecutive trophy. It was also the last chance for Emmy voters to reward his performance as Queen elizabeth ii in this category for “The Crown” as she passed the baton to Olivia colman for the third and fourth seasons. The story of the “last chance” does not belong to Moss this year but to Corrin since it is the first and the only time that she will compete for the role of dramatic actress to play. princess diana on “The Crown”.

Corrin has previously won the Golden Globe and Critics Choice Award, losing only SAG to his co-star Gillian anderson, which is in support of the Emmys. Unlike Foy vs. Moss, Corrin and Moss have never faced each other before, so there is no evidence that either can beat the other. Corrin also competes internally with Colman, who is in fourth place (“Pose’s” Mr. J. Rodriguez is the third, “In process” Uzo Aduba is fifth, and “Lovecraft Country’s” Jurnee Smollett is sixth), although it probably won’t siphon off too many Corrin votes. Also, the 21 deals of “Handmaid’s” are only three less than the 24 won by “The Crown” and “The Mandalorian”, so you can safely say that “Handmaid’s” is right there with “The Crown”, which has been the favorite of the drama series. since its fourth release has dropped in November.

If Moss is successful in one way or another, she will be the first dramatic actress champion to win a second statuette since. Julianna Margulies won her second Emmy in 2014, three years after her first. It was also the last time a champion dramatic actress triumphed again after being snubbed the year before. It was a different voting system, but still something to keep in mind. And incidentally, Moss and Foy can win their second acting Emmy for the same characters and shows they won their first for this year: Foy is nominated as a guest actress for the drama for portraying young Elizabeth in “The Crown.” .
