Last year, Margo Martindale triumphed in this category with her turn on “The Americans,” a show that has been woefully underrepresented at the Emmys. While she could repeat this year, she will have to battle some fierce competitors in the form of previous winners.
Both Allison Janney [“Masters of Sex”] and Carrie Preston [“The Good Wife”] have won for their roles before. And several potential nominees are previous winners. Diana Rigg was previously nominated here for her work on “Game of Thrones”; she scored a win in 1997 for “Rebecca.” Ellen Burstyn [“House of Cards”] is an Emmy winner in this category for “Law & Order: Svu,” and has seven noms and two wins total. [Don’t forget Burstyn is beloved; she was famously nominated for her work in “Mrs. Harris,” which consisted of fewer than 20 seconds of screen time.] Laurie Metcalf has three Emmys from “Roseanne,” but her work as the ex-wife of Louis C.K. in “Horace and Pete” is unlike anything we’ve seen her in before. Stockard Channing has won two Emmys, both in 2002, and could score a third for the final season of “The Good Wife. »

The episode, sensitively written by Toni Graphia and directed by Metin Hüseyin, exemplifies why “Outlander” stands head and shoulders above the majority of other primetime dramas, especially when it comes to portrayals of rape and loss. While it’s often hard to stomach the violence that human beings inflict on each other, “Outlander” takes pains to explore the emotional aftermath of its physical cruelties, »
