After triumphing in this category 2018 and 2019, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s Alex Borstein is the odds-on fave to take home Emmy’s Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for a third-consecutive year. But the acid-tongued awards darling is poised to face off against some new competition since four of last year’s contender’s — Fleabag‘s Olivia Colman and Sian Clifford, Barry‘s Sarah Goldberg and Veep‘s Anna Chlumsky — are not in the running.
Rest assured, there is no shortage of worthy actresses ready, willing and able to fill those vacancies — our Dream Emmy short list is proof of that.
