Emmys 2021: the winners, the losers, the speeches – live! – The Guardian
Well, thankfully, there is no lead actress in Ted Lasso so the very deserving Jean Smart squeezes in for her role as a been-there-done-that comedian in the wonderful HBO Max comedy Hacks. It’s been a big year for the actor, who hasn’t always been given the roles she deserves, with another nomination for Mare of Easttown also at this ceremony. It’s the first major awards show for HBO Max (it’s not been a great night for their other hope, The Flight Attendant) and with the second season on the way, it feels like Smart might own this category for the next few years.
