Cherry Jones (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) wins Emmy for Best Drama Guest Actress over favorite Phylicia Rashad
Cherry Jones won Best Drama Guest Actress for “The Handmaid’s Tale” at the Creative Arts Awards on Sunday night, September 15. She prevailed for the episode “Holly,” in which she played Elisabeth Moss‘s crusading mother. But if it weren’t for a few orphans, Jones might not have been eligible for the Emmy at all. Check out the complete list of Sunday’s Creative Arts winners here.

“The Handmaid’s Tale” didn’t air its third season in time to compete for the 2019 Emmys, but the last three episodes of season two aired too late to be considered for Emmys in 2018. So the television academy ruled that those “orphaned episodes” would be eligible to compete in 2019, though the show would not be eligible for Best Drama Series or series-regular acting categories. Other prizes were up for grabs, and it paid off with 11 nominations for the show.
