Rhea Seehorn, Carol Burnett Compete for the Emmy spotlight in ‘Better Call Saul’

Rhea Seehorn, Carol Burnett compete for the Emmy spotlight in 'Better Call Saul'

Rhea Seehorn, the award-winning actress from “Better Call Saul,” is set to submit her nomination for the  supporting drama actress category in the Primetime Emmy Awards. The star, who plays Kim Wexler, Saul Goodman’s wife and confidante, will join co-star Carol Burnett in the race for the prestigious award. Despite being shut out for six seasons, “Better Call Saul” is hoping to take home some trophies this year. The AMC spin-off series is eligible for this year’s Emmys, despite airing last summer.

Rhea Seehorn submits nomination for the supporting drama actress category for the Primetime Emmy Awards for her role in “Better Call Saul”.

Seehorn’s team was reportedly undecided over whether to submit her for lead or supporting actress, but has opted for the latter. Burnett, on the other hand, has to submit in the supporting category but appeared in over 50% of the season’s episodes. The decision to submit in the supporting actress category is a smart one, as the competition in the lead category is fierce, with strong contenders such as Emma Corrin and Olivia Colman of “The Crown.”

In addition to Seehorn and Burnett, AMC is also submitting in various categories including drama series, lead drama actor (Bob Odenkirk), supporting drama actors (Jonathan Banks, Giancarlo Esposito, Pat Healy), guest drama actors (Bryan Cranston, Tony Dalton, Mark Margolis, Michael McKean, Aaron Paul), guest drama actress (Betsy Brandt), directing, and writing.

This year’s Emmy submissions are due on May 9th, and category confirmations have been pouring in. Actors from shows such as “Succession” and Jennifer Coolidge’s turn in “The White Lotus” will also compete against Seehorn and Burnett. Emmy voting is set to begin on June 15th, so it won’t be long before we find out who will take home the coveted award.

It’s worth noting that while “Better Call Saul” has been consistently praised for its writing, acting, and production design, it has never won an Emmy. The show has been nominated for 39 awards, but has never taken home a statuette. Fans are hoping that this year will be the one where the show finally gets the recognition it deserves
