Gold Derby can exclusively reveal that Michael Kelly is entering the “House of Cards” series finale episode “Chapter 73” as his 2019 Emmy Awards submission for Best Drama Supporting Actor. This program streamed November 2 and was the eighth episode of the sixth season for the Netflix show.
In this installment, Doug Stamper (Kelly) releases transcripts of Frank Underwood’s recordings where he cut his wife Claire (Robin Wright) out of his will. Doug visits the President in her office and admits to killing Frank. She stabs him with a letter opener and then suffocates him.
It’s the fourth nomination for Kelly in this role. For this year’s contest, he is competing against three-time champ Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), past nominees Jonathan Banks (“Better Call Saul”), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (“Game of Thrones”) and Giancarlo Esposito (“Better Call Saul”), plus rookie contenders Alfie Allen (“Game of Thrones”) and Chris Sullivan (“This Is Us”).
