2023 Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Dramatic Predictions

Do not be afraid; even if “The White Lotus” were to once again overachieve in a supporting actress category, there are performances from Rhea Seehorn, Sarah Snook, Elizabeth Debicki and others that would still make the Emmy race competitive.

State of the species

If this were a dream series we’d like to see get more Emmy attention, of course there would be more shows represented, but you can’t look at how “The White Lotus” dominated this category last year in limited series, and you can’t expect any better. for a revised, more-watched second season, and the show is not predicted to take home Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series when the Emmy nominations are announced in July.

If Jennifer Coolidge’s move into the lead actress category becomes official, then Aubrey Plaza and Meghann Fahy’s subtly twisted relationship will give Aubrey Plaza and Meghann Fahy a better chance to win. Haley Lu Richardson and Sabrina Impacciatore also benefit from having a lot of scenes against the powerhouse Coolidge, so they could probably get Emmy nominations, like Natasha Rothwell did last season. If the young Italian actresses Simona Tobasco and Beatrice Grannò get in, expect the show to sweep the drama series categories as well.

All things considered, Ann Dowd previously won an Emmy for her role as Aunt Lydia, making her the most likely actress to represent “The Handmaid’s Tale,” a show that has dominated this category in the past, but the final season was less buzzy than usual. “Game of Thrones” has never been particularly successful here, but Milly Alcock and Olivia Cooke, stars of the more female prequel “House of the Dragon,” could change that. The show certainly did as well as HBO had hoped and even won a Golden Globe for Best Drama Series.

“Yellowjackets” is also likely to get at least one nomination here if Christina Ricci submits again as a supporting actress. Joining the cast are Lauren Ambrose and Simone Kessell in Season 2 as the grown-up versions of Van and Lottie. Kessell as a potential cult leader sounds a bit juicier, but either or both could get in depending on the reaction to the breakout Showtime hit’s sophomore effort.

However, “Better Call Saul” viewers are getting a big boost for Rhea Seehorn to finally win as Kim Wexler in the final season of the AMC drama. “Succession” is also about to end within the Emmy eligibility period, so voters may feel that stars Sarah Snook and J. Smith-Cameron are due for four seasons of excellent work. And Elizabeth Debicki, who plays Princess Diana, was the standout performance of “The Crown” Season 5, so the category is actually a bit more competitive than all the HBO stars.

Milly Alcock, “The Dragon’s House” (HBO)
