CM – Kenan Thompson, Jean Smart and Aidy Bryant top the list of Emmy nominees with double-acting names


Kenan Thompson joins the few most acclaimed in Emmy history who have been nominated twice in the acting categories. Thompsons are very unusual in both the regular full-time series categories for both major and minor comedy. He was given a lead actor in a comedy series on Tuesday for his portrayal of Kenan Williams on his NBC comedy series of the same name. He also received a supporting actor in a comedy series for Saturday Night Live. These aren’t Thompson’s first Emmy noms, however. He previously received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for Saturday Night Live in 2018 for the song « Come Back, Barack » from an episode hosted by Chance the Rapper.

The multiple Emmy winner Jean Smart experienced her first time as a double nominee in the acting categories. Smart received a nomination for her starring role as legendary Las Vegas comedian Deborah Vance in HBO Max’s hit comedy Hacks. She also received a nomination for supporting actress in a limited or anthology series or film for her role as Mares mother Helen in HBO’s Mare of Easttown, also nominated for the highly competitive Limited Series race that includes HBO’s I May Destroy You and Netflix, The Queen’s Gambit, Amazon’s The Underground Railroad and Disney’s first Marvel series WandaVision.
