Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon will battle for the same Emmy on Monday, and so will a bunch of other costars

There were a lot of remarkable performances on television in 2017. And that’s great, but it also creates a little problem: A lot of actors are nominated for Emmys in the same categories as their costars, who are, when you really think about it, coworkers.

This makes the competition even more intense, since it becomes a question of who was better on the same show.

With amazing performances from the casts of “Big Little Lies,” “The Night Of,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Saturday Night Live,” “Feud: Bette and Joan,” and more, these are all the actors competing with their costars for an Emmy this year.

The 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Stephen Colbert, air live on Monday from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles. And here’s how to stream them.
