エミー賞 2021: 誰が勝ち、誰が勝つべきか

エミー賞 2021: 誰が勝ち、誰が勝つべきか
Sunday’s ceremony, セドリック・ジ・エンターテイナー主催, will answer the question on everyone’s lips: Can ‘Ted Lasso’ finally lift a trophy? Kevin E G Perry gives his predictions

Last year, the biggest awards night in television was dominated by a feel-good comedy with a rabid online fanbase. シッツクリーク became the first show in Emmys history to sweep all four acting categories in its genre, and also took home further prizes for writing and directing as well as the big one: Outstanding Comedy Series. 今年, all eyes are onテッド・ラッソ to see whether the much-debated Apple TV+ series can pull off a similarly dominant performance. Given that half their squad is nominated, you wouldn’t want to bet against them going home happy at the final whistle.

At least all the nominees will be able to gather in one place this year. After last year’s rather strange remote affair, this year’s ceremony will take place in person at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday 19 September at 8pm ET (which is 1am in the UK, 勇気があるなら) under the watchful eye of host Cedric the Entertainer. Here’s my rundown of who will likely scoop up the main prizes, as well as who actually deserves to:

Outstanding Comedy Series


Cobra Kai






The Kominsky Method

Will win: テッド・ラッソ

It may be a show about an underdog, だが テッド・ラッソ is the clear favourite here. Given how much Emmy judges loved シッツクリーク 昨年, it would be a major upset if anyone other than Ted took home this trophy.

Should win: Pen15

No real complaints over Ted’s inevitable victory, but it’s worth taking a moment to salute the joyously inventive comedy of Pen15 and the superbly acerbic ハック. Either would be a deserved winner. キャビンアテンダント was a lot of fun, but was it a comedy? Strictly speaking, おそらくそうではない. その間, the less said about パリのエミリー’s nomination the better – especially when the brilliance of 他の2つ そして 神話クエスト have been completely ignored.

Outstanding Drama Series









Will win: 王冠

王冠 appears to be the front-runner, helped in no small part by how much Americans still love anything to do with Princess Diana (see also: the coming Broadway musical and wave of biopics). If it pulls it off, it would also mark a first series Emmy win for Netflix.

Emma Corrin as Diana in ‘The Crown’

Should win: ラブクラフトカントリー

It may have been cancelled by HBO after just one series, but the wildly imaginative and consistently thrilling ラブクラフトカントリー deserves the nod here.

Outstanding Limited Series






Will win: クイーンズギャンビット

クイーンズギャンビット is the odds-on favourite with the bookies, who have no doubt noted that at last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys the show swept the board with nine technical awards, including for cinematography. A very good omen.

Should win: 私はあなたを破壊するかもしれません

Even in a competitive field, what Michaela Coel achieved with 私はあなたを破壊するかもしれません still stands head-and-shoulders above the competition. It was funny, 本物, 本音, timely and important, and would be a deserved winner.

Michaela Coel in ‘I May Destroy You’

Outstanding Lead Actress, コメディ

Aidy Bryant, Shrill

ジーン・スマート, Hacks

Allison Janney, Mom

Kaley Cuoco,キャビンアテンダント

トレーシーエリスロス, Black-ish

Will win: ジーン・スマート

I predicted Jean Smart would win this back in June, and I’m sticking by that claim. She’s had a superlative year, capped by this career-best role as a sharp-tongued stand-up comic in ハック.

Should win: JEAN. SMART.

Outstanding Lead Actor, コメディ


Anthony Anderson, Black-ish

マイケル・ダグラス,The Kominsky Method

William H Macy,恥知らず

Kenan Thompson,Kenan

Will win: ジェイソン・サダイキス

An open-goal for Jason Sudeikis. His bosses at Apple TV+ must have been glad they got his much-inflated new contract signed before an Emmy win increased his leverage even further.

Blessedly uncynical: Jason Sudeikis in ‘Ted Lasso

Should win: ジェイソン・サダイキス

Sudeikis has added so much nuance and texture to his beloved character, it’s hard to believe Ted started life shilling Premier League coverage to America in NBC Sports adverts.

Outstanding Lead Actress, Drama



Uzo Aduba, In Treatment


ジャーニー・スモレット, Lovecraft Country


Will win: エマ・コリン

Corrin is the resounding favourite here. She played a crucial role in this year’s season of 王冠, and as we’ve said before: Americans just can’t get enough of Diana.

Should win: ジャーニー・スモレット

Watching Jurnee Smollett’s breakout turn in ラブクラフトカントリー felt like witnessing the birth of a star. She proved she can do it all, from scenes of tense terror to her sizzling chemistry with co-star Jonathan Majors. She’d be a deserved winner.

Outstanding Lead Actor, Drama

レジ・ジーン・ページ, Bridgerton

Sterling K Brown, This Is Us

ビリーポーター, Pose

Jonathan Majors,ラブクラフトカントリー

Matthew Rhys,Perry Mason


Will win: ジョシュオコナー

O’Connor is as clear a favourite in this category as Emma Corrin is in hers, meaning it’s very likely we’ll see Charles and Diana reunited with trophies in hand.

The Crown season 4 トレーラー

Should win: Jonathan Majors

It’s worth noting that ラブクラフトカントリー is the first show in Emmys history to have four Black actors nominated across the major acting categories. Jonathan Majors’ powerful, kinetic performance in the show cemented his status as one of Hollywood’s most exciting young leading men – give that man an Emmy.

Outstanding Lead Actress, Limited Series or TV Movie

ケイト・ウィンスレット, Mare of Easttown



エリザベスオルセン, WandaVision

シンシア・エリボ,天才: アレサ

Will win: アニャテイラージョイ

In a very competitive field without a clear favourite, Anya Taylor-Joy may just pip her rivals to the post thanks to the way so much of クイーンズギャンビット relied on her talent, and how effortless she made that look. Checkmate.

Should win: ミカエラ・コール

Coel’s performance in 私はあなたを破壊するかもしれません was so compelling, so personal and so raw that she clearly deserves to be celebrated for her acting talent as much as her peerless writing. 他の場所, Kate Winslet will feel aggrieved not to be rewarded for, 少なくとも, nailing Mare’s Delaware County accent.

Outstanding Lead Actor, Limited Series or TV Movie

ポール・ベタニー, WandaVision

Hugh Grant,The Undoing

ユアン・マクレガー, Halston

リンマニュエルミランダ, Hamilton

Leslie Odom Jr, Hamilton

Will win: Leslie Odom Jr

A strange group of nominees this year. While it’s certainly possible to judge Hugh Grant’s slow unravelling in The Undoing against what Lin-Manuel Miranda and Leslie Odom Jr are doing in ハミルトン, a better question would be: should you? とはいえ, it’s likely one of the Hamilton pair will go home happy, and as Odom famously beat Miranda at the Tonys, don’t be surprised if he repeats the trick here.

Should win: Hugh Grant

I found Ewan McGregor’s turn as the titular fashion designer in ホルストン hugely enjoyable, but Hugh Grant’s ability to charm his way out of (ほとんど) everything as a dashing pediatric surgeon accused of murder in The Undoing was the pick of these performances for me.

Hugh Grant, Noma Dumezweni and Nicole Kidman in Sky Atlantic’s ‘The Undoing’

Outstanding Supporting Actress, コメディ

Kate McKinnon,土曜日の夜のライブ

Cecily Strong, Saturday Night Live

Aidy Bryant,土曜日の夜のライブ

Rosie Perez,キャビンアテンダント



Juno Temple,テッド・ラッソ

Will win: ハンナ・ワディンガム

Waddingham is the favourite to win for her performance as AFC Richmond owner Rebecca Welton in テッド・ラッソ, and deservedly so. She’s superb as the boss trying to kamikaze her own club only to be won over by Ted’s charm, and his biscuits.

Should win: ハンナ・ワディンガム

It’s Hannah Waddingham’s year.

Outstanding Supporting Actor, コメディ

Bowen Yang, Saturday Night Live

Kenan Thompson,土曜日の夜のライブ


Brendan Hunt,テッド・ラッソ

Nick Mohammed, Ted Lasso

Jeremy Swift, テッド・ラッソ

ポールライザー,The Kominsky Method

Carl Clemons-Hopkins, Hacks

Will win: ブレットゴールドスタイン

In a category dominated by テッド・ラッソ’s Diamond Dogs (plus Roy), it’s fairly safe to assume that someone from the show will end up a winner. Which of them will be crowned is trickier to predict, but the smart money is on Brett Goldstein, whose arc as hardman midfielder Roy Kent gave him plenty to get stuck into.

Should win: Nick Mohammed

Goldstein would be a worthy winner, but I’d love to see Nick Mohammed rewarded for imbuing kitman-turned-coach Nate with so much heart.

Outstanding Supporting Actress, Drama




Ann Dowd, The Handmaid’s Tale


Samira Wiley,ハンドメイドの物語


Aunjanue Ellis, Lovecraft Country

Will win: ジリアン・アンダーソン

It’s the battle of the Margarets, as Thatcher (ジリアン・アンダーソン) and the Princess (ヘレナ・ボナム・カーター) go head-to-head as the most likely winners in this category. Both lit up 王冠, but Anderson is the one being most hotly tipped to take home a second Emmy after winning in 1997 as Agent Scully in Xファイル.

Should win: Aunjanue Ellis

Ellis took her ラブクラフトカントリー character Hippolyta Freeman on a journey from housewife to something beyond time and space. She’d be a worthy winner. It’s a longshot, but it might just happen if the multiple nominees for ハンドメイドの物語 そして 王冠 end up splitting the vote.

Outstanding Supporting Actor, Drama

マイケル・K・ウィリアムズ, Lovecraft Country

Bradley Whitford, The Handmaid’s Tale

Max Minghella, ハンドメイドの物語

O-T Fagbenle,ハンドメイドの物語

John Lithgow, Perry Mason

Tobias Menzies,王冠


Chris Sullivan,これが私たちです

Will win: マイケル・K・ウィリアムズ

This award is sure to be one of the night’s most emotional moments. The Emmys ceremony will come just two weeks after the death of Michael K Williams, the frontrunner thanks to his multi-faceted performance as Montrose Freeman in ラブクラフトカントリー. Insanely, Williams was never even nominated for an Emmy for playing either Omar Little on ワイヤー or Chalky White on ボードウォークエンパイア, so a little posthumous recognition is really the least they can do.

Should win: マイケル・K・ウィリアムズ

It can only be Michael K Williams.

Supporting Actress, Limited Series or a Movie



Kathryn Hahn,ワンダヴィジョン

Phillipa Soo, Hamilton

Renee Elise Goldsberry, Hamilton

Moses Ingram,クイーンズギャンビット

Will win: Kathryn Hahn

Given that Hahn’s villainous theme song “Agatha All Along” won the Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics at the technical awards a few days ago, it’s hard to look beyond her as the winner here – a reward for a vibrantly entertaining career as well for this much-memed performance.

Should win: ジュリアン・ニコルソン

If we assume, as we should, that Jean Smart will win in the Outstanding Lead Actress, Comedy category, it would be great to see this award go to her イーストタウンのマーレ co-star Julianne Nicholson. Nicholson didn’t get to have as much fun with her role as Smart, but she brought real humanity to the show’s twisting denouement.

Outstanding Supporting Actor, Limited Series or Movie

ダヴィード・ディグス, Hamilton

Jonathan Groff, Hamilton

Anthony Ramos, Hamilton

Thomas Brodie-Sangster,クイーンズギャンビット

Evan Peters,イーストタウンのマーレ

Paapa Essiedu, I May Destroy You

Will win: Evan Peters

Peters is the man to beat after doing great work opposite Kate Winslet in イーストタウンのマーレ. His Detective Colin Zabel wasn’t just able to keep up with Mare intellectually, he also gave the show its romantic heart.

ケイト・ウィンスレット, 「MareofEasttown」のエヴァン・ピーターズとジャスティン・ハート・ダンクリー’

Should win: Paapa Essiedu

それが私次第だったら, this Emmy would be ending up on Essiedu’s mantlepiece. The journey his character Kwame takes through 私はあなたを破壊するかもしれません was a difficult one, and it was always elevated by Essiedu’s deft, emotionally sensitive portrayal.

Outstanding Television Movie

Uncle Frank

Sylvie’s Love


Robin Roberts Presents: Mahalia

Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square

Will win: Sylvie’s Love

This category is Hollywood’s existential crisis in the form of a little gold statuette. For the past eighteen months, pandemic restrictions have meant that almost all movies have been released directly to television. しかしながら, none of those movies are eligible for this award because they all want to fight it out at the Oscars, which disqualifies them from the Emmys. That leaves only a handful of competitors, of which the favourite to win is Sylvie’s Love, the period romance from writer/director Eugene Ash starring Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha.

Should win: Christmas on the Square

It’s unlikely that when the great and mighty Dolly Parton looks back on her life and works, the timeless songs written and sung, the life-saving vaccines funded, she’ll spend a great deal of time dwelling on the forgettable special Christmas on the Square. それでも, it gets my vote because: A) It would be a fun protest about how contrived this category has become, and B) who doesn’t want to watch Dolly collect an Emmy?
