Hulu submit any of the series regulars from The Handmaid’s Tale who are guest eligible (i.e. appear in less than 50% of the show’s episode count of a season) in guest.
Guest/Supporting has always confused me. The first Emmys I watched was in 1999 when Holland Taylor in The Practice beat Lara Flynn Boyle and Camryn Manheim in the Supporting Actress in a Drama race. Lara Flynn and Camryn were series regulars and Holland appeared in 6 out of 22 episodes that season as a judge. Nancy Marchand of The Sopranos and Kim Delaney of NYPD Blue were the other two nominees. The next year, Stockard Channing in The West Wing got nommed in the same category for appearing in 3 out of 22 episodes of the first season; Allison Janney won though.
Guest Actor/Actress was also around then, so I guess it was just a preferrable name check scenario during the nominations because both instances were certainly Guest Actress. There are a lot of wtf intricacies with the Emmys over the years haha.
