Mount will face some stiff competition in the category, especially from the Marvel Cinematic Universe shows on Disney+. Other nominees include Tom Hiddleston on Loki, Oscar Isaac on Moon Knight, and Anthony Mackie on Captain America & The Winter Soldier.
Fan-Favorite Couple Spock/Chapel Actors Nominated for Saturns
For his role as Science Officer Spock, Ethan Peck was nominated for Supporting Actor in a Streaming Series. The character originated in the same episode of TOS, where he was played by Leonard Nimoy, a role he would continue to play throughout all three seasons of the show and reprise for both seasons of Star Trek: The Animated Series, two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, in all six of the Star Trek movies featuring the original Enterprise crew, and in several of the Kelvin timeline Trek movies.
Peck will face competition from the MCU as well, thanks to Ethan Hawke’s nomination for his performance as the antagonist in Moon Knight. However, Netflix’s Umbrella Academy provided a nomination-worthy platform for Elliot Page, and Apple TV+ has both Zach Cherry and John Turturro of Severance and Joel Kinnaman of For All Mankind delivering nomination-worthy performances, as well.
And for her performance as Nurse Christine Chapel, Jess Bush was nominated for Supporting Actress in a Streaming Series. The character was originated by Majel Barrett-Roddenberry on TOS, and she continued to play the role throughout TAS and in several of the Trek movies featuring the original Enterprise crew. As far as Bush’s competition goes, the other nominees in the category include Kathryn Hahn’s scene-stealing turn as Agatha Harkness in WandaVision. Also nominated in the category is Moses Ingram, who had everyone on social media abuzz after her appearance in Obi-Wan Kenobi.
