In the Emmy race for Best Drama Supporting Actress, Golden Derby reports exports they talked to from major media outlets predict that we’ll see both “Stranger Things” supporting ladies nominated: Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven and Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers. Thirteen-year-old Brown is undoubtedly TV’s breakout star of the year thanks to Netflix’s 1980s-set sci-fi drama. An Emmy victory for Brown would make her one of the youngest recipients in TV history, but she must watch out for Ryder, a two-time Oscar nominee for “The Age of Innocence” (1993) and “Little Women” (1994).
Golden Derby polled 18 TV journalists from top media outlets for their Emmy picks, and two of them predict Brown will prevail: Pete Hammond (Deadline) and Peter Travers (Rolling Stone). Meanwhile, one journalist — Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby) — forecasts a victory for Ryder.
Season two of the Netflix series is scheduled to premiere this Halloween.
