AWARDS PREDICTION COMMENTARY: As the young Homer, Chase W. Dillon, 11 (9-years-old during filming), makes a profound impression in Barry Jenkins’ captivating adaptation of Colson Whitehead’s novel, “The Underground Railroad.” If nominated, he’ll join a very short list of young actors who have received Emmy recognition and also become the youngest male acting nominee in Emmy history, beating Fred Savage, who was nominated for “The Wonder Years” at age 13, and the second youngest overall behind Keshia Knight Pulliam, who was 6-years-old when she was nominated for “The Cosby Show.” Dillon will face stiff competition from his co-star William Jackson Harper for one of the six spots, though. Harper’s talents, which were recognized last year in the supporting comedy actor race for NBC’s “The Good Place,” could be one of the few year-over-year noms across all acting categories. 

There are also the veterans in play like Brendan Gleeson (“The Comey Rule”) and the SAG nominated Bill Camp (“The Queen’s Gambit”) eyeing his first career win.

The eligibility period ends on May 31 before nomination-round voting begins on June 17, concluding on June 28. The Primetime Emmy nominations will be announced on July 13, 2021.
