Sterling K. Brown
Sterling K. Brown is already a three-time Emmy winner, and he’ll be competing for his fourth award this year. Brown is nominated in the outstanding lead actor in a drama series category for “This Is Us.”
From season three of the show on, Brown has reportedly been earning $250,000 per episode, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Olivia Colman has been nominated for three Emmys in previous years but has yet to take home an award. This year, she is nominated for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for “The Crown.” Colman will be facing off against her co-star Emma Corrin in the category.
Longtime television star Kaley Cuoco earned her first-ever Emmy nomination this year — she is nominated in the outstanding lead actress in a comedy series category for “The Flight Attendant.”
Although Cuoco is reportedly no longer earning her $1 million salary from her “Big Bang Theory” days, she’s certainly still racked up an impressive net worth.
“Saturday Night Live” cast member Kate McKinnon now has a total of nine Emmy nominations and two wins under her belt. She’ll be competing in the outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series category this year.
Lin-Manuel Miranda earned two nominations for the Disney+ version of “Hamilton” this year. He’s up for outstanding variety special (pre-recorded) and outstanding lead actor in a limited or anthology series or movie.
“Hamilton” has made Miranda a very rich man — as of 2016, he was earning $6.4 million per year from the show, The New York Times reported.
Elizabeth Olsen earned her first Emmy nomination this year for her portrayal of Wanda Maximoff in “WandaVision.” Olsen is nominated in the outstanding lead actress in a limited or anthology series or movie category.
Billy Porter has previously earned two nominations and one win — in 2019, he won the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama series for “Pose.” He is nominated once again in the same category for his performance on the show — will he go two for three?
“Ted Lasso” star Jason Sudeikis is nominated in multiple categories this year: outstanding lead actor in a comedy series, outstanding writing for a comedy series and outstanding comedy series. Sudeikis reportedly earned roughly $400,000 per episode for season one of the show.
