    I’d say The Morning Show. Her role essentially has the same focus in the writing as Rose Byrne’s did in the later seasons of Damages in the sense that she is more or less the secondary lead. In Big Little Lies she is on level with Kidman.

    Rose Byrne played the main character of Damages, at least early on.

    Sorry I meant in terms of the later seasons where Close became more of a primary lead than her.

    If I’m honest Close should have gone Supporting for season 1 at least. I can understand her being Lead for season 2 and she was a primary lead from season 3 onwards.

    Season one of BLL is focused most on Witherspoon. Then I’d say season two is focused more on Kidman, with Witherspoon being the second lead.

    Have yet to see The Morning Show. I’ve boycotted Amazon.

    It’s on AppleTV+ not Amazon.

    Witherspoon is more supporting in BLL, but that show doesn’t need ANOTHER supporting actress contender. TMS only has Mbatha-Raw, and while she’s very deserving and should totally be nominated, the fact that her story is basically confined to the last three episodes (with many viewers likely not making it through the frankly bad first half of the season), means that she’s an outsider dark horse at best. It would give her even less of a chance of being nominated if Witherspoon was also in supporting, but it gives Reese a better shot for both shows if she goes in different categories.

    I still think Witherspoon is being nominated in lead for BLL though.

    Is she allowed to submit for both though?

    I have already heard from both companies that she is lead. You can be on the ballot in the same category for multiple shows. There was once a rule against it many years ago but not any more.

    But I assume there is still a rule preventing you from getting nominated for both?

    If only she went Supporting for one of them, then I’d predict 3 nominations for her.

    I find the people saying she go supporting for Big Little Lies baffling. I mean yes she had less material than the first season but she still had more material than anyone else for all of the first three episodes of season two with the premiere being the most lines any of the cast has had in a single episode of either season. She dipped off towards the end but that’s just the reverse of Kidman in both seasons.

    The difference with The Morning Show is that whilst she obviously a co-lead still, she is not only definitively given less to do than Aniston from the word go but even misses an episode.

    I’ll say to the very end that tactically she should have gone supporting for The Morning Show because she could have won there. I can understand why she didn’t though because she is such a lead of both shows.

    No.

    So wait she can get double nominated? Poor Reese because she’s going to vote split anyway with herself but if I was an actress who just missed an Emmy nomination this year and Reese Witherspoon got two in one category I wouldn’t be so happy.
