Elle Fanning is one of the nomination predictions for the 2020 Emmy Awards by Marcus James Dixon on Gold Derby, Elle is 1 out of 7 predictions that they have made.

Confession time: for the most part I agree with the combined Emmy predictions of Gold Derby’s Experts, Editors and Users. No-brainer nominations for folks like Catherine O’Hara & Eugene Levy (“Schitt’s Creek”), Olivia Colman (“The Crown”) and Brian Cox (“Succession”)? Check, check and check. However, on a handful of occasions I’m going rogue and ignoring the herd mentality of your average awards pundit.

Elle Fanning (“The Great”) — Best Comedy Actress
As Catherine the Great, the Empress of Russia, Fanning gives a genre-bending performance that straddles the line between comedy and drama. Emmy-Voters are suckers for these types of characters — just look at recent category winners Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”) and Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”). In Hulu’s “occasional” true story, Fanning gets to show off her range in the many scenes in which her character acts defiantly and breaks the rules, particularly when it comes to overthrowing her husband, Emperor Peter (the equally deserving Nicholas Hoult).

The other 6 predictions are Larry David (“Saturday Night Live”) for Best Comedy Guest Actor, Josh O’Connor (“The Crown”) for Best Drama Supporting Actor, Julie Dretzin (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) for Best Drama Guest Actress, Dean Norris (“Better Call Saul”) for Best Drama Guest Actor, Kerry Washington (“Little Fires Everywhere”) for Best Movie/Limited Actress, and Patti LuPone (“Hollywood”) for Best Movie/Limited Supporting Actress.

Will they earn Emmy nominations today Tuesday, July 28, 2020, despite their lowly racetrack odds?.
