    Until very very recently, television work was often considered as the ugly step-sister when compared to film and theatre. In fact, notable film performers doing a series was often seen as a “career ender” and “slumming it”.

    I bring this because at the 91st Academy Awards, all four winners could be considered TV stars with all of their most notable work coming in the medium as opposed to their film work.

    • Rami Malek (Mr. Robot)
    • Olivia Colman (Broadchurch, Fleabag, Crown)
    • Mahershala Ali (Luke Cage, House of Cards, Ramy, True Detective)
    • Regina King (227, Boondocks, Southland, Leftovers)

    Malek notably took a season off from his Emmy-winning role in Mr. Robot to film Bohemian Rhapsody, Colman was Emmy eligible in ceremony before (Broadchurch S3) and after (Fleabag) her win, is a darling of British TV and couldn’t Even campaign because of prior commitments filming The Crown, Ali was literally on a HBO drama during that awards season & King was double nominated at all the winter awards for both Beale Street and her cancelled Netflix show.

    What’s even more interesting is throughout the decades, thespians who have won/been nominated for Oscars while appearing on a regular television series (no miniseries or TV movies & show must be actively on air, Adam Driver wouldn’t qualify as Girls had ended it’s run) had remained relevantly stead until the 2010s, when more active TV performers were Oscar nominated than the previous 5 decades combined.

    Actually no. The third season of American Crime aired in 2017 and she won the Oscar in 2019.

    You can argue much of Reginas goodwill to win the award came from her American Crime success and Emmy rise so I kinda count that.

    Art Carney

    John Travolta

    Travolta already in the OP, didn’t include MTM & Carney because while they still had to overcome the TV Stigma of the 1970s, neither of them had any active shows on the air come Oscar time.

    Yeah. She definitely was on a super hot streak. She still is actually

    She’s really been iron hot since Southland and really hasn’t stepped a bad foot forward (even a flop like Seven Seconds still got her an Emmy).

    That’s why I mentioned American Crime because that is what really lit her up to the point she is now

    Sally Field for “Brothers & Sisters”

    Didn’t included as Brothers & Sisters as it was cancelled during the 2010-2011 TV season. Only included thespians who had a a show competing at either the prior Emmy ceremony in September before the Winter wards (Like Malek & King at the 2018 Emmys) or at the following Emmy ceremony after (Ali & Arquette).

    • Hilary Swank — Beverly Hills 90210

    Swank had already left 90210 in early 1998 before Boys Don’t Cry was even made.

    If Colman Domingo gets nominated for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”, he’ll be on the Emmy as a main cast member on two different shows (“Fear the Walking Dead” and “Euphoria”) and another as a guest anthology (“The Twilight Zone”).
