The Emmy Awards 2024 saw the Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie awards being bestowed upon Paul Walter Hauser and Niecy Nash-Betts for their exceptional performances in Dahmer-Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story and Black Bird.
The presenters for the Outstanding Supporting Actress were acting veteran Marla Gibbs and Quinta Brunson, who arrived quite flushed from her Emmy victory earlier tonight. A shocked and overjoyed Niecy Nash-Betts went to the stage, decked in a black, classy gown with a mermaid cut.
Overwhelmed and ecstatic, the actress was relatable and fierce in her thank-you speech, thanking herself for believing in herself and for being her own biggest ally. She cheered gleefully with her award in hand and stated that she accepted the award on behalf of every beautiful black and brown-skinned sister out there who have been and still are ‘unheard and over-policed.’ The actress signed off with an iconic 'Mama, I won’.
The other contenders in the category were Annaleigh Ashford (Welcome to Chippendales), Maria Bello (Beef), Claire Danes (Fleishman is in Trouble), Juliette Lewis (Welcome to Chippendales), Camila Morrone (Daisy Jones & the Six), and Merritt Wever (Tiny Beautiful Things).
As for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, the award was bestowed upon a still-chewing Paul Walter Hauser for his stint in Black Bird, who gave the speech while gulping it down, exhibiting a chill state of mind and self-confidence for a first-time nominee.
The actor thanked the voters, his mom, dad, and wife, Amy. He added a further tribute to his spouse by complimenting her for making his heart strong and his knees weak. The Emmy Awards 2024 is available to stream on Lionsgate Play and OTTplay Premium from January 15, 2024, onward.
