Emmys 2021: Supporting Actress in a Limited Series — Our Dream Nominees

Emmys 2021

This year’s limited series logjam is causing congestion well beyond Emmy’s lead acting races. The supporting categories are just as crowded, so much so that we had to make some painful cuts on the Dream Emmy front.

In any other year, Jean Smart’s performance as Kate Winslet’s spitfire of a mother in HBO’s Mare of Easttown would have undoubtedly made our wish list for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie. But in 2021? There’s no room at the inn! (We recognized Smart in the Lead Actress in a Comedy contest for her revelatory Hacks work, so we’ll sleep just fine tonight, thank you very much.)

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.
