SAG Awards pit ‘Hacks’ leading lady Jean Smart against supporting player Hannah Einbinder

SAG Awards pit ‘Hacks’ leading lady Jean Smart against supporting player Hannah Einbinder

Immediately after she was named the best comedic TV actress of 2020 by the Screen Actors Guild, Catherine O’Hara praised her “Schitt’s Creek” costar Annie Murphy as “a beautiful soul” and stated, “I share this with [her].” The on-screen mother-daughter duo were placed in direct competition here less than seven months after they both triumphed at the Emmys, where O’Hara was deemed a lead while Murphy was classified as supporting. Since SAG does not separate TV performers by role size, showdowns like this are fairly common. Indeed, there has been at least one instance in this category ever year since 2017, and Hannah Einbinder and Jean Smart of “Hacks” are now looking to continue the tradition.

HBO Max’s “Hacks,” the first season of which concluded in June, focuses on struggling Las Vegas stand-up comedian Deborah Vance (Smart) and her new writing partner Ava Daniels (Einbinder) as they navigate their working relationship and personal lives.
