The state of the race

It’s been nearly two years since Billy Crudup won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for the first season of The Morning Show, beating out multiple Succession nominees who finally made it after Season 1 was completely disqualified from all acting nominations.

With the popularity of the HBO drama still rising and the popularity of the pricey Apple TV+ series waning, this seems to be the year that TV Academy will award one of the supporting cast of “Succession.” It still feels like they’re catching up.

Most critics would argue that Matthew Macfadyen as Tom Wambsgans was Season 3’s MVP following the explosive, revealing finale. However, Kieran Culkin, who is expected to win in 2020, was the one more on the campaign trail, recently appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. It’s not like he just sat on his thumb for the whole of season 3 either, he had this unfortunate nude photo moment that was so memorable it even became a meme. With Season 3 ending, there’s bound to be more great material for Macfadyen and his young accomplice Nicholas Braun in Season 4 (which is currently filming), but 2022 feels like Culkin’s year at the Emmys.

That is, unless Crudup wins in another upset, which is entirely possible. Judging by this year’s Emmy nominations, there’s clearly still a fervent “The Morning Show” fan base within TV Academy, and Crudup is the star who knows his job best. His villainous TV producer character, Cory Ellison, would even be one of the few able to take on the “Succession” media moguls. Factor in co-star Reese Witherspoon’s surprise nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series and how his character was involved in a love triangle with her in Season 2, and Crudup emerges even more as an Emmy nominee. The voters certainly had their eyes on him.

Meanwhile, last year pretty much everyone in the world had their eyes on “Squid Game,” and at another time Oh Yeong-soo’s Golden Globe win would have made it more of a frontrunner, but it just doesn’t seem like it whether he and co-star Park Hae-soo (whose nomination came as a welcome surprise here) will end up taking the honors. The language barrier didn’t seem like a huge issue for the cast of the blockbuster Netflix series, which is encouraging, but it’s difficult being based in South Korea and having to fly all the way to Los Angeles to promote the award. Perhaps the ending of both of their characters’ story arcs in Season 1 while other nominees are still running their shows is the element that will convince voters they should give “Squid Game” in that category as well.

Rounding out the nominees is another couple, who actually play a couple in Severance, the freshman hit drama on Apple TV+. Emmy-winner John Turturro and Oscar-winner Christopher Walken are no strangers to awards shows, but with many viewers still getting a feel for the story “Severance” tells, a win this year feels a bit premature for either of the two veteran actors on.

Power Rankings:

  1. Kieran Culkin, “The Succession” (HBO)
  2. Matthew Macfadyen, “The Succession” (HBO)
  3. Billy Crudup, “The Morning Show” (Apple TV+)

  6. Nicholas Brown, “Succession” (HBO)
  7. Christopher Walken, “Severance Pay” (Apple TV+)
