Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie

The Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series category tends to have more than one actor nominated from the Academy's favorite projects.

Last Year’s Winner: Evan Peters, “Mare of Easttown”
Still Eligible: No.
Hot Streak: HBO has won the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie category for two years in a row, and should someone like Murray Bartlett from “The White Lotus win, they would be back on track from a decade ago, when the pay-cable network won the category from 2008 to 2011.
Notable Ineligible Series: Owen Wilson, “Loki” (submitted as a Drama Series); Paul Walter Hauser, “Black Bird” (the season will not air in time to be eligible); Domhnall Gleeson, “The White House Plumbers” (the season will not air in time to be eligible)

This article will be updated throughout the season, along with all our predictions, so make sure to keep checking IndieWire for the latest news from the 2022 Emmys race. The nomination round of voting will take place from June 16 to June 27, with the official Emmy nominations to be announced on Tuesday, July 12. The Creative Arts Emmy Awards will be given out over two consecutive nights on Saturday, September 3 and Sunday, September 4, with an edited presentation on the ceremonies to be broadcast on Saturday, September 10, at 8:00 p.m. ET on FXX. Finally, the 74rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will take place on Monday, September 12, and air live on NBC at 8:00 p.m. ET/ 5:00 p.m. PT.

Past years have shown that voters tend to nominate more than one actor from a specific series in this category, with the past four years having three of the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie nominees come from the same project. That bodes well for two Hulu series. “Dopesick” has Peter Sarsgaard, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Will Poulter all eligible, while “The Dropout” has Naveen Andrews and William H. Macy, but both shows have ensembles so big that even more cast members could break in depending on how much overall recognition the shows get.
