Gold Derby can exclusively reveal that Samira Wiley entering “The Handmaid’s Tale” episode “Vows” as her 2021 Emmy Awards submission for Best Drama Supporting Actress. This program streamed May 19 and was the sixth episode of the fourth season for the Hulu show. It’s now officially what she wants Emmy voters (all members of the academy’s acting and casting branches) to view as a sample of her best acting work from this latest season.
In this installment, Moira (Wiley) convinces June (Elisabeth Moss) to escape the chaos of Chicago for asylum in Canada. Her girlfriend Oona (Zawe Ashton) ends their relationship to not cause any further damage to their mission work.
This year marks her fourth career Emmy nomination with one previous win. For this 2021 contest, she is competing against co-stars Madeline Brewer, Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski, “The Crown” co-stars Gillian Anderson, Helena Bonham Carter and Emerald Fennell, plus Aunjanue Ellis from “Lovecraft Country.”
