Emmys 2018: Who Should Win Every Award (And Who Actually Will)

25. Supporting Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie

Black Mirror Letitia Wright
Netflix

Nominees: Sara Bareilles, Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert; Penélope Cruz, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story; Judith Light, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story; Meritt Wever, Godless; Letitia Wright, Black Mirror - Black Museum

Should Win: Judith Light

Light and her Versace co-star Cruz are both excellent, but in very different ways. While Cruz gets the much glitzier role, it's Light as Marilyn Miglin who does more and in a shorter space of time. It's a little more understated, but what she lacks in pazazz she more than makes up for in a brimming, bubbling intensity that commands the screen every time she's on it.

Will Win: Penélope Cruz

As mentioned, this is the flashier role of the two and, with five episodes as opposed to Light's two, there's a greater chance for voters to remember her, and Cruz does impress. Meritt Wever will also provide some stiff competition here, but the Academy loves American Crime Story.
