Best Supporting Actress in a Shakespeare Production (2011)

Kathleen McCall

Emilia is Iago's wife in Othello, and no one can ever quite figure out how complicit she is in his murderous deceptions. Emilia has to know that something's badly askew when she hears Othello castigating Desdemona for having lost the handkerchief she herself picked up earlier and gave to her husband, but she says nothing — despite the fact that she cares for Desdemona. Kathleen McCall's complex, moving performance in the Denver Center Theatre Company's production shed light on this riddle, showing how Emilia's longing to do what was right warred continually with her pained love for Iago.
