Gold Derby can exclusively reveal that Rachel Brosnahan is entering “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” episode “Thank You and Good Night” as her Emmy submission for Best Comedy Actress. This installment streamed November 29 and was the eighth and final episode of the first season for the Amazon show.
In this segment, Midge (Brosnahan) and Susie (Alex Borstein) drink away their troubles after Midge’s tirade on stage against comic Sophie Lennon (Jane Lynch). While hungover the following day, Susie reads the bad headlines to her over the phone. Midge gets ready for her son’s birthday party while her parents are fighting. Her ex-husband wants to reunite and move to California.
It’s the first nomination in this category for Brosnahan after a previous bid as Best Drama Guest Actress in “House of Cards” (2015). For the 2018 ceremony, she is up against previous champions Pamela Adlon (“Better Things”), Allison Janney (“Mom”) and Lily Tomlin (“Grace and Frankie”), past nominee Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”) and first-timer Issa Rae (“Insecure”).
