Emmys: Gillian Anderson to Campaign for Guest Actress as ‘American Gods’ Sets the Rest of Its Category Slate

The relevant extracts are posted below!

Starz has announced their For Your Consideration category slate for “American Gods,” bringing some order to a significantly stuffed ensemble.

The network confirmed what we’d already suspected: Gillian Anderson’s role as Media will officially be submitted in the Guest Actress in a drama category.

Jumping into the Supporting Actress fray this year would have meant going up against some other formidable first-year opponents. With Chrissy Metz and Thandie Newton getting their first shot at a nomination on extremely popular shows, Anderson might have a better shot in a more open field, her impeccable Lucille Ball and David Bowie impressions aside.

Anderson’s last nomination was for her leading role in 2006’s “Bleak House” adaptation, despite her work on “American Gods” showrunner Bryan Fuller’s previous TV effort, “Hannibal.”
