Riz Ahmed and John Turturro are competing for their roles on "The Night Of."

There were a lot of great performances on television in 2017. And that's great, but it also creates a little problem: A lot of actors are nominated 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 cast 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.
