Emmy Predictions 2021 - Who Will Likely Be Nominated for Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie?

From June 17-28, 2021, voting took place for The 73rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. As such, it's fun to look at which actors and shows have the best chances of actually being nominated this year. So, these are my predictions for who will be nominated for Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.

For Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, 140 actors were submitted for consideration. That will result in six nominees in this category when the nominations are announced on Tuesday, July 13.

Actors most likely to be nominated:
  1. John Boyega for Amazon's Small Axe
  2. Bill Camp for Netflix's The Queen's Gambit
  3. Donald Sutherland for HBO's The Undoing
  4. Brendan Gleeson for Showtime's The Comey Rule
  5. Evan Peters for HBO's Mare of Easttown
  6. Courtney B. Vance for National Geographic's Genius: Aretha
Serious threats that could break through:
  1. Daveed Diggs, Jonathan Groff, Christopher Jackson, Okieriete Onaodowan and Anthony Ramos for Disney+'s Hamilton
  2. Chase W. Dillon, William Jackson Harper, Aaron Pierre, Fred Hechinger, Chukwudi Iwuji and Calvin Leon Smith for Amazon's The Underground Railroad
  3. Paapa Essiedu for HBO's I May Destroy You
  4. Glynn Turman, Ben Whishaw, Timothy Olyphant and Jack Huston for FX's Fargo
  5. Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Harry Melling and Jacob Fortune-Lloyd for Netflix's The Queen's Gambit
  6. Guy Pearce, David Denman and John Douglas Thompson for HBO's Mare of Easttown
  7. Randall Park, Evan Peters and Josh Stamberg for Disney+'s WandaVision
  8. Morgan Freeman, Dan Stevens and Anthony Mackie for Amazon's Solos
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. Scoot McNairy, Michael Kelly, Jonathan Banks, Kingsley Ben-Adir and Steven Pasquale for Showtime's The Comey Rule
  2. Noah Jupe, Edgar Ramirez and Michael Devine for HBO's The Undoing
  3. Joshua Caleb Johnson, Daveed Diggs, Wyatt Russell, Hubert Point-Du Jour, Beau Knapp, Nick Eversman, Jack Alcott, Ellar Coltrane and Mo Brings Plenty for Showtime's The Good Lord Bird
  4. Malcolm Barrett, David Cross, Omar J. Dorsey and Ethan Henry for National Geographic's Genius: Aretha
  5. Michael Stuhlbarg, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Hunter Doohan and Tony Curran for Showtime's Your Honor
  6. Paddy Considine and John Dagleish for HBO's The Third Day
  7. Nick Robinson, Shane Harper, Ashley Zukerman and Dylan Schmid for FX on Hulu's A Teacher
  8. Neil Patrick Harris, Nathaniel Curtis, Omari Douglas and Callum Scott Howells for HBO Max's It's a Sin
  9. Bill Pullman, Rory Culkin, Sullivan Jones, David Pittu and Gian Franco Rodriguez for Netflix's Halston
Colorful oddities who still have an outside chance:
  1. Billy Porter and Jimmi Simpson for CBS All Access' The Twilight Zone
  2. Rahul Kohli and Henry Thomas for Netflix's The Haunting of Bly Manor
  3. Christian Slater for USA's Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story
  4. Amir Bageria and David Iacono for Netflix's Grand Army
  5. Robert Aramayo for Netflix's Behind Her Eyes
  6. Corbin Bernsen and Timothy Omundson for Peacock's Psych 2: Lassie Come Home
