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

For Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, 116 actresses were submitted for consideration. That will result in six nominees in this category when the nominations are announced on Tuesday, July 13.

Actresses most likely to be nominated:
  1. Kathryn Hahn for Disney+'s WandaVision
  2. Jean Smart for HBO's Mare of Easttown
  3. Letitia Wright for Amazon's Small Axe
  4. Marielle Heller for Netflix's The Queen's Gambit
  5. Julianne Nicholson for HBO's Mare of Easttown
  6. Weruche Opia for HBO's I May Destroy You
Serious threats that could break through:
  1. Renée Elise Goldsberry, Phillipa Soo and Jasmine Cephas Jones for Disney+'s Hamilton
  2. Teyonah Parris and Kat Dennings for Disney+'s WandaVision
  3. Noma Dumezweni and Lily Rabe for HBO's The Undoing
  4. Sheila Atim and Lily Rabe for Amazon's The Underground Railroad
  5. Moses Ingram and Isla Johnston for Netflix's The Queen's Gambit
  6. Jessie Buckley and Karen Aldridge for FX's Fargo
  7. Helen Mirren, Anne Hathaway, Uzo Aduba, Constance Wu and Nicole Beharie for Amazon's Solos
  8. Holly Hunter, Jennifer Ehle, Oona Chaplin and Amy Seimetz for Showtime's The Comey Rule
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. Angourie Rice and Sosie Bacon for HBO's Mare of Easttown
  2. Krysta Rodriguez, Kelly Bishop and Rebecca Dayan for Netflix's Halston
  3. Amy Landecker, Maura Tierney, Margo Martindale, Hope Davis, Carmen Ejogo, Sofia Black-D'Elia and Lilli Kay for Showtime's Your Honor
  4. Kimberly Hebert Gregory, Patrice Covington, Rebecca Naomi Jones and Shaian Jordan for National Geographic's Genius: Aretha
  5. Katherine Waterston and Emily Watson for HBO's The Third Day
  6. Lydia West and Keeley Hawes for HBO Max's It's a Sin
  7. Rya Kihlstedt for FX on Hulu's A Teacher
Colorful oddities who still have an outside chance:

  2. Whoopi Goldberg and Amber Heard for CBS All Access' The Stand
  3. T'Nia Miller, Carla Gugino, Amelia Eve, Kate Siegel, Tahirah Sharif and Katie Parker for Netflix's The Haunting of Bly Manor
  4. Jenifer Lewis for Netflix's Dolly Parton's Christmas on the Square
