For Emmy voters, the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series race may ultimately be a choice between Allison Janney and Hillary Clinton.
Janney, of course, isn’t competing against the real HRC. Instead, she’ll face Saturday Night Live impersonator Kate McKinnon. Should the Not Ready for Primetime Player defeat Janney, she’d be the first female SNL cast member to walk away with a statuette since — get this — the late Gilda Radner in 1978. Should Janney snag the coveted award, it’ll be her third consecutive win for Mom.
Janney and McKinnon won’t be the only familiar Emmy faces competing for a supporting actress accolade on Sept. 18. They are joined by Getting On‘s Niecy Nash (her second consecutive nomination) and Veep‘s Anna Chlumsky (in the running for a fourth year). Gaby Hoffmann is also up for her second nom, but may split the vote with Transparent matriarch Judith Light who, believe it or not, has only ever been nominated in the Outstanding Guest Actress field for her work on Ugly Betty. The veteran stage and screen actress is the only nominee who wasn’t part of this particular race in 2015.
