In last year’s Emmy race for Supporting Actor in a Drama, more than 50 percent of the nominees hailed from just two series: HBO’s Succession and Apple TV+’s The Morning Show.
But with the pandemic delaying the latest seasons of both shows, rendering its cast members kudos-ineligible, the race is primed for a shake-up. And it just so happens we know of seven very worthy candidates who could fill those vacancies.
Scroll through the list below to review all seven of our Dream Nominees (remember, these aren’t predictions; they’re wish lists) and then tell us if our picks warrant a “Hell, yes!,” “Um, no” or “How could you leave off so-and-so?!”
For the record, 2021 Emmy nominations will be voted on from June 17-28, and unveiled on July 13. The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony is scheduled to air on Sunday, Sept. 19 on CBS.
