Emmy Predictions 2021: Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series —  Are More Surprises In Store?
Last Year’s Winner: Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, “Watchmen

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: There has never been a repeat winner in this category, and one network hasn’t won twice in a row since Tom Wilkinson (“John Adams”), Ken Howard (“Grey Gardens”), David Strathairn (“Temple Grandin”) and Guy Pearce (“Mildred Pierce”) took home consecutive trophies for HBO original programs from 2008 to 2011.

Fun Fact: Given this category consists of performers in limited series, anthology series, and TV movies, it shouldn’t be all that surprising to learn that very few programs have been represented more than a few times. “American Crime Story” leads them all with six nominations and “American Horror Story” is close behind with five.

Notable Ineligible Series: “American Crime Story: Impeachment” (the season did not air in time to be eligible); Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” (submitted as a Drama Series).
