Third Emmy for Julia Garner, Bill Hader, Kate McKinnon, Alex Borstein?

Since the Emmys went from a ranked ballot to a popular vote in 2016, no artist has been able to win three Emmys for a show. But that could finally change this year with so far four actors eligible to claim statuette #3 for their respective series: Alex Borstein (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”), Julia Garnier (“Ozarks”), Bill Hader (“Barry”) and Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live”).

Pierre Dinklage from “Game of Thrones” and Julia Louis Dreyfus of “Veep” are the only actors who came close to achieving this feat and none of them have another chance to complete it since “Thrones” and “Veep” aired their final seasons in 2019. It should be noted that the two have actually won more than two Emmys in total for their respective shows — Dinklage bagged four for “Thrones” and Louis-Dreyfus six for “Veep” — they just haven’t been able to convert the three nominations they received under the popular vote system in wins. Dinklage won the dramatic supporting actor role for “Thrones” back-to-back in 2018 and 2019, but had already fallen to Ben Mendelsohn (“Bloodline”) in ’16. Louis-Dreyfus, on the other hand, nabbed the Best Comedy Actress statuettes consecutively straight out of the gate in 2016 and 17, but was then beaten by Phoebe Waller Bridge (“Fleabag”) on his last lap in 19.

Two actors who were also close to picking up a third win for their respective series, but either didn’t qualify or haven’t yet been confirmed eligible this year are Claire Foy (“The Crown”) and Ron Cephas Jones (“It’s us”). In turn to Queen Elizabeth II on the Netflix drama series, Foy garnered three nominations, two for lead (2017-18) and one for guest (2021), winning lead in 2018 and guest. Jones also won his four offers for “This Is Us” in two different categories, dramatic supporting actor (2017) and guest actor (2018-20), winning trophies in the latter in 2018 and 20. Although Foy is not not in contention this year with “The Crown” sitting this cycle (and there’s no confirmation she’ll reprise her role once again in future episodes of the show), Jones, though so far MIA , could yet appear in the ongoing sixth and final season of “This Is Us” and will be featured, presumably, as a guest star. If that happens and Jones lands a name, he, as the most Emmy-winning ‘This Is Us’ cast member who could benefit from a goodbye hug from the voters, could be in an ideal position. to earn a third win for the show.

Of the four aforementioned actors whose eligibility is confirmed, Borstein and McKinnon are the only ones who have already tried — and in McKinnon’s case, several — to participate. McKinnon won two Best Supporting Actress Emmys for “SNL” in 2016 and 2017 before being dethroned by Borstein herself, who went on to pick up back-to-back wins for “Maisel” in 2018 and 2019. two lost to Annie Murphy (“Schitt’s Creek”) in 2020, and McKinnon fell to Hannah Waddingham (“Ted Lasso”) last year, when Borstein was ineligible. The two should return to the list of comedy supporting actresses, by our odds, in which Borstein ranks second and McKinnon fifth.

Whether any of them are able to triumph again will largely depend on whether voters are willing to return to the pit, given that Jones is the only player to recover from defeat under the system so far. of popular vote. But with supporting actress comedy most likely being a category of eight in which someone only needs around 13% of the vote to win, it’s not impossible for Borstein or McKinnon to follow in the footsteps. of Jones.

Garner and Hader, meanwhile, are in a similar position to Louis-Dreyfus in 2019, in that they are looking to resume their winning streak after a break. They’re 2-for-2 for “Ozark” and “Barry,” respectively, with Garner winning drama supporting actress in 2019 and ’20, and comedy actor Hader in ’18 and ’19. Both return for the first time since their last victories. Garner is competing for the final season of “Ozark,” whose 14 episodes have been split into two parts, the first of which debuted on Netflix on January 21 and the second will drop on April 29 — an exit strategy that could give Garner a major raise. Currently in second place in our Dramatic Supporting Actress ratings, she’ll likely be one of the last contenders whose performance voters consider for her category before voting begins and, if Part 1 is anything to go by, she’ll have a ton of baity material to leave a lasting impression. She also doesn’t have to worry about taking on last year’s winner ‘The Crown’s’. Gillian Anderson.

Hader, who sits in third place in the comedic actor rating, will likely have it a little harder since he’s been out longer and faces the outgoing winner of his category, Jason Sudeikis of the reigning champion of the best comedy series “Ted Lasso”. But the good news for him is that the third season of “Barry,” which premieres April 24 on HBO, will air in the heart of Emmy season and could benefit from a resurgence in interest in the series linked to a break. .
