Elle Fanning, Toni Collette Among Actresses Who Could Land Double Emmy Noms

Through the years, there have been countless creators, producers, directors and actors who have gone without an Emmy Award. And then there are those lucky enough to earn multiple kudos for different projects — in the same year.

That could be the case for numerous stars leading up to the 2022 Emmys, with more than a dozen actors with multiple projects on the bubble. Elle Fanning is Hulu’s shining star this year, with both “The Great” and “The Girl From Plainville” in the conversation; not only does she lead the comedy and the dark drama, she also serves as an executive producer on both.

“I only had two weeks in between to go from ‘The Great’ to ‘The Girl From Plainville.’ So it was a complete 180 for sure,” says Fanning of wrapping the second season of the period comedy and heading into the true-crime story. “‘The Girl Form Plainville’ was a project that I knew was kind of looming. During filming ‘The Great,’ I knew that it was a project I had signed on to do. It was that daunting thing in the back of your head that you’re nervous about and actually don’t quite know what you’re going to do with the character yet. Honestly, during ‘The Great,’ I was really suppressing thinking about Michelle [Carter].”

During those two weeks, Fanning had to do the research to discover the real person past what the media knew about Carter, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2017 after encouraging her boyfriend to take his own life.

“There’s not a lot on her. There’s a lot of photographs and there are YouTube videos of her in court just sitting. She never testifies, she never speaks,” Fanning says. “It was really from the ground up.”

While she was hesitant to sign on as so many of those involved are still alive and affected, becoming a producer helped that skepticism.

“It, of course, adds more of a responsibility, but I felt that having a part of that control could contribute to telling the story in a thoughtful way,” she adds. “Luckily, everyone on the team, we all felt the same and how we wanted to bring sensitivity to this and show the story from an unbiased approach.”

Though “The Great” was nominated for two Emmys — one writing and one directing — in 2020, Fanning has yet to be recognized for her role of Catherine the Great; her co-star Nicholas Hoult has also been looked over in past years.

With “The Girl From Plainville,” Fanning is only the start of possible double nominees. Chloë Sevigny could earn two supporting noms — one for her role as the late Conrad Roy’s mother in the limited series and one for her supporting part as Lenora in Netflix’s “Russian Doll.” Meanwhile, “Plainville” co-showrunners Liz Hannah and Patrick Macmanus also have other shows in the mix. While Hannah served as an EP on Hulu’s “The Dropout,” Macmanus created “Dr. Death.”

Macmanus was beginning the writers’ room on the Peacock true crime series in 2019 when he received the article “Plainville” was based on. Fanning was attached and Hannah joined, and he went to begin prep for “Dr. Death,” which quickly paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Liz and I wrote the pilot for ‘Plainville’ in April 2020 and sold it to Hulu around May. The room opened in August as prep on ‘Death’ started. That was running concurrently. ‘Death’ wrapped in March 2021. I finished post on ‘Death,’ and the next day, I flew to Savannah to start prep on ‘Girl From Plainville,’” says Macmanus, who humbly notes that all the credit goes to Hannah and the team — the “majority” of the “Dr. Death” writers came over to “Plainville.”

With so much high quality content this year, it’s no surprise that other stars could also dip their toes in multiple categories. [Source]
