People are calling this Emmy race “one of the closest ever”, but my Emmy source (that spilled this delicious blind item) has sent me a cheeky little email stating otherwise.
‘It’s not as close as anybody thinks it will be,’ he says. ‘[name omitted] is cert to win. [gender omitted] hasn’t won before, so [they’ll] get it.’
So, tell me, Gossipers:
Who is our winner?
What is our race?
Nicole Kidman & Best Actress in a Movie or Limited Series
Blind Item Posting: 24/07/17
Popular Guesses: Nicole Kidman / Jessica Lange
Nicole Kidman vs Jessica Lange was called the closest Emmy race of the year by GoldDerby and The Gossip Life’s very own, Scott, but my Emmy source contacted me almost two months ago to tell me the blind item above.
Kidman ended up lifting the Emmy last night, beating Lange, Susan Sarandon, Carrie Coon and co-star Reese Witherspoon, even though she initially trailed Lange in the predictions for the award.
It’s Kidman’s first ever Emmy Award after 2 previous nominations. Lange is an Emmy favourite and has won 3 in the last 10 years.
