Last Year’s Winner: Julianne Nicholson, “Mare of Easttown”
Still Eligible: No.
Hot Streak: It has been a while since the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie category has had any sort of streak. The last time really was when Regina King had back-to-back wins for “American Crime” in 2015 and 2016. It was the first time the category ever had a back-to-back winner. Since then, the category has had a mix of winners at every level, with different actresses from different projects at different networks being recognized. An HBO win this year could start a hot streak though.
Notable Ineligible Series: Sophia Di Martino and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, “Loki” (submitted as a Drama Series); Lena Headey, “The White House Plumbers” (the season will not air in time to be eligible); Lily Rabe, “Love and Death” (the season will not air in time to be eligible)

TV Academy voters are not averse to nominating multiple actresses from one project in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie category, they just usually recognize pairs. How that would look this year would be Andie MacDowell and Anika Noni Rose from Netflix’s “Maid” making it in, or Connie Britton being nominated alongside Jennifer Coolidge for their work in HBO’s “The White Lotus.”
