Emmys 2017: Supporting Actress, Limited Series or Movie — Our 6 Dream Nominees

Regina King has become a deservedly dominant force in our latest Dream Emmy race. The American Crime standout has picked up the Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie trophy two years running for her subtle work in ABC’s anthology drama. And she’s gunning for a third this year.

But King faces formidable competition in ’17 — so much so that she didn’t even make our Dream short list this year (suffice it to say that if this category allowed eight nominees, she would’ve landed a spot alongside her similarly, regrettably snubbed-by-us co-star, the terrific Lily Taylor).

To see which six actress did make the cut, flip through the gallery to the right — or click here for direct access — and then weigh in with your own Dream Emmy nominations in the comments.

For the record, Emmy voting is currently underway and will wrap up on June 26. The nominations themselves will be unveiled on July 13. Meanwhile, the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony, hosted by Late Show frontman Stephen Colbert, is set to air on Sunday, Sept. 17 on CBS.

  1. Obviously Gilmore Girls isn’t going to get all this excessive emmy love that TVLine keeps promoting so lets just assume the official nominees will be this list minus Kelly Bishop plus Regina King/Lily Taylor. If they are going to go in a trashy direction though, maybe Adina Porter for AHS would be an interesting choice. That show is pretty awful these days, but Adina’s performance was fantastic.

      Honestly though if ‘Gilmore Girls’ manages to get an Emmy Nod Kelly Bishop is their best chance….

      • Jec says:

        I agree. She was the best part of the revival. Her storyline was the best and felt different from the rest. So I would like to see her get a nomination.

    While I like Jackie Hoffman and Jennifer Hudson, I would much rather see Lili Taylor and Regina King nominated. The other nominees are fine, but I would also consider swapping Judy Davis out for Shailene Woodley or Ana Mulvoy Ten or Adina Porter.

  3. z says:

    Would Rose Byrne go in here for Henrietta Lacks or is she a lead?

  4. DJ says:

    Kelly Bishop I think is Gilmore Girls best shot at a nomination this year I’m not gonna be surprised if I see her name on the list July 13th.

  5. Would a win by J-Hud put her three-fourths of the way to an EGOT?

  6. Sasha says:

    MEW should be winning this category by a landslide but Emmys are opposite of Oscars, they do not award hot talented young ladies 99% of time. Unfortunately she won’t be even nominated.

  7. Lemonsour says:

    I’m hoping it goes to Mary Elizabeth, she’s spectacular are Fargo and arguably the lead just as much as Carrie Coon. Hoping she gets a nomination. Would love to see Laura Dern and Adina Porter in there as well.

  8. LAwoman says:

    A big yes to Winstead and Dern!

  9. Arlene says:

    What about Jemma Coleman as ‘Victoria’? She just won a prize in Italy for that role, and a new season returns next year…Not sure if it’s a mini-series or a regular tv program.

  10. My prediction is, Jennifer Hudson will get the Emmy Nomination for Best Movie/Miniseries Supporting Actress. Social Media and Critics alike are still talking about her memorable performance, when “Hairspray” first aired on NBC and after it re-aired again March, 2017. Jennifer Hudson will be the one to beat in this category, such a strong and powerful performance with meaning, that brought many to tears including the cast. We will pray the Emmy Submission Committee will get this one right and not look over her amazing performance as Motormouth Maybelle. Regina King and Jennifer Hudson can duke it for the win.
