‘The Crown’ dominates the acting categories.


By John Koblin

“The Crown” is widely regarded in the entertainment industry as the gold standard in television thanks to its lush production values and great cast.

But it is 0 for 3 in the best drama race, and most of its Emmy wins have been in smaller categories like production design and costumes.

“The Crown” is the heavy favorite this year to finally win best drama for the show’s fourth season, and its cast overwhelmed the acting categories. Seven performers — Josh O’Connor (lead actor in a drama) as Prince Charles, Emma Corrin (lead actress in a drama) as Princess Diana, Olivia Colman (lead actress in a drama) as Queen Elizabeth II, Gillian Anderson (supporting actress in a drama) as Margaret Thatcher, Helena Bonham Carter (supporting actress in a drama) as Princess Margaret, Emerald Fennell (supporting actress in a drama) as Camilla Parker Bowles and Tobias Menzies (supporting actor in a drama) as Prince Philip — landed nominations. This will be their last chance to win Emmys for their roles; the next season of “The Crown” will feature a new cast.
