the layered performances of leading ladies

Powerhouse actresses have remade television as we know it. In the past decade, casting marquee names for small-screen parts transformed from a grabby gimmick to a career-rebooting move that would allow the actresses to broaden their skill sets. This year, veterans of both the big and small screens are revealing sides of themselves on TV we’ve never gotten to see before. The 2021 Emmy season is chock full of standout performances, from new faces (P-Valley’s Brandee Evans and The Crown’s Emma Corrin, to name two), yet still, longtime stars have especially soared this year on television. Some are completely deglamorized, while others show off intelligence and cunning that their previous characters lacked. In the drama categories, there are few actresses receiving more awards buzz than Kate Winslet, who stars as a rough-hewn…

a dramatic race turns competitive

STERLING K. BROWN This Is Us The 2017 winner of this award, and a nominee in each year since, hopes to make it five in a row for his portrayal of Randall Pearson, who continues to seek clarity about his origins and grapple with family tensions, all while adding to his professional success. On the heels of SAG Award and Critics Choice noms, and with his 16-episode season (the highest number of this group) clocking in at 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, he could be the category’s sole nominee from a broadcast show. JONATHAN MAJORS Lovecraft Country This actor, 31, could land his first Emmy nom for his portrayal of a Black Korean War veteran who has to navigate 1950s Jim Crow America — with its monsters both human and supernatural — on HBO’s acclaimed…

greatest hits of tv’s fiercest fashionistas

TRACEE ELLIS ROSS 2018 EMMYS IN VALENTINO “No one was doing that sort of volume on the carpet then,” recalls Ross’ stylist Karla Welch of the Black-ish nominee’s billowy fuchsia Valentino Haute Couture gown at the 2018 Emmys. “My phone exploded when Tracee hit the carpet,” says Welch, who describes Ross’ style as “iconic.” EMMA CORRIN 2021 GOLDEN GLOBES IN MIU MIU The breakout star of The Crown’s fourth season eschewed a simple strapless dress in favor of Pierrot the Clown-inspired Miu Miu with an exaggerated ruffle collar and crystal-embellished velvet for her virtual appearance at this year’s Golden Globes in February. CYNTHIA ERIVO 2021 GOLDEN GLOBES IN VALENTINO The Genius: Aretha singer-actress made the evening’s boldest statement in neon green Valentino Haute Couture — a sculpted, mesh ball gown straight off the Paris runway, nonetheless — with…

‘this show led her to become a fully realized, autonomous woman’

Elizabeth Olsen has been in the business for a decade now. She first burst onto the scene in Sean Durkin’s 2011 directorial debut, Martha Marcy May Marlene, a Sundance sensation for which she received a breakthrough actor Gotham Award nomination, best actress Critics Choice and Spirit Award noms and a BAFTA EE Rising Star Award nom. She followed with standout work in numerous other indies and on the Facebook Watch drama series Sorry for Your Loss. But since 2013, she’s best known as a member of the Marvel family, playing Wanda Maximoff — aka Scarlet Witch —on the big screen (though with limited screen time) in five Marvel films and then this year on the small screen in the limited series WandaVision, Disney+’s first MCU TV series and the first…

a heartfelt story told to a sex doll

In the seventh episode of the HBO Max sci-fi comedy, Hazel (Cristin Milioti) is telling her dad’s sex doll, Diane, about an experience she had with her husband, tech mogul Byron (Billy Magnussen). As we see in a flashback, she asked Byron to take her outside their simulation cube (aka the HUB), in which she’d been trapped for years, to a Warpaint concert. But she soon discovers he’s instead chosen to bring Warpaint to them. Through this story, Hazel realizes that she and Diane aren’t so different after all.…

‘fear and desperation drive a lot of comedy’

Showrunning isn’t for the faint of heart. And yet, for three of the six gathered for The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Comedy Showrunner Emmy Roundtable — PEN15’s Anna Konkle, Chad’s Nasim Pedrad and The Upshaws’ Wanda Sykes — it’s only half the job. “I think I’ve tried to hire all three of you individually to [star in] shows at some point, and the fact that you’re all now writing as well is a little annoying,” jokes Ted Lasso’s Bill Lawrence. But versatility is only a part of what makes the showrunner/star trio so impressive to the veterans — Lawrence, The Kominsky Method’s Chuck Lorre, and Younger and Emily in Paris’ Darren Star — at the virtual table. Adds Lorre, “Part of the fun of hanging in there in this business is finding…
