- Patrika Darbo initially won this category for her performance as Mickey Walker on Amazon's The Bay The Series. The win was vacated after it was determined that Darbo appeared in a prior season of The Bay and entered scenes from multiple episodes for judging, both violations of the TV Academy's submission guidelines. An award was not given to runner-up Jennifer Bassey, portraying Beverly Newman on YouTube series Anacostia, because she too submitted scenes from multiple episodes. Thomas Calabro, nominated for his role as Arthur Tobin on The Bay, also had his nomination in this category rescinded for appearing in a prior season.
