‘Killing Eve’s’ Jodie Comer could join this killer group of back-to-back drama actress Emmy winners

‘Killing Eve’s’ Jodie Comer could join this killer group of back-to-back drama actress Emmy winners

We were guaranteed a new Best Drama Actress Emmy winner before nominations last year with 2018 champ Claire Foy (“The Crown”) out, but that’s not the case this time around. “Killing Eve” star Jodie Comer is currently in fourth place in our odds and is looking to become the first drama actress champ to defend her crown in seven years and the 10th altogether.

Of the 16 women who’ve won this category more than once, nine have done so with at least one successful title defense. Two, Tyne Daly and Barbara Bain, have even three-peated. Here are the nine:

1. Michael Learned, “The Waltons” and “Nurse” (1982)

2. Tyne Daly, “Cagney & Lacey

3. Barbara Bain, “Mission: Impossible” (1967-69)

4. Susan Hampshire, “The Forsyte Saga” (1970) and “The First Churchills” (1971)

5. Sharon Gless, “Cagney & Lacey” (1986-87)

6. Patricia Wettig, “thirtysomething” (1990-91)

7. Kathy Baker, “Picket Fences

8. Glenn Close, “Damages” (2008-09)

9. Claire Danes, “Homeland” (2012-13)
