Tiffany Haddish won the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for hosting Saturday Night Live, while Katt Williams won Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for his appearance on Atlanta. Ron Cephas Jones won Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for This Is Us after being nominated for the second year in a row, while Samira Wiley won Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for The Handmaid's Tale.
