Sarah Goldberg Should've Landed an Emmy Nom for Her 'Barry' Performance

The nominations for the upcoming 74th Primetime Emmy Awards were recently announced, and while there were a number of wonderful surprises, such as Sydney Sweeney for both Euphoria and The White Lotus, and Melanie Lynskey for Yellowjackets, there were also some glaring snubs. As expected (and deserved), HBO’s dark crime comedy Barry was recognized for its stellar work both in front of and behind the camera, racking up an impressive 14 nominations. Co-creator and star Bill Hader was nominated for writing and directing in addition to his work playing the titular role, Henry Winkler and Anthony Carrigan secured recognition for acting, and the series itself was nominated alongside other heavy hitters such as Hacks, What We Do in the Shadows, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for Best Comedy Series. But where on Earth is actress Sarah Goldberg’s nomination?

Barry's Sarah Goldberg and Susan Stanley Co-Create, Co-Star in New Dramedy Series

Sally Reed Is ‘Unraveling’ in Barry Season 3. But Sarah Goldberg's In Control.

It’s fitting, in the sick tragicomedy of Barry, that Sally Reed’s triumph should look so much like a meltdown. As played by Canadian actress Sarah Goldberg, Sally is sweetly narcissistic, likable for an unlikable type, so self-involved that she never notices her cheerleader boyfriend—Bill Hader’s Barry—is a sociopathic hit-man addicted to his own trigger finger. In the long-anticipated third season, Sally is finally churning her trauma as a domestic abuse survivor into a Hollywood cash cow; she’s producing, writing, and starring in a show named after her hometown of Joplin, Missouri, all about a mother who coaches her young daughter out of a violent relationship.

‘Barry’ Secret Weapon Sarah Goldberg Takes Center Stage

In its first two highly rated seasons, HBO’s dark comedy Barry successfully deconstructed the masculine tropes and glamorized violence audiences have come to expect on prestige television shows about sad, murderous—or generally terrible—men. In Season 3, the multi-Emmy-winning series extends its queries about morality and power beyond Barry Berkman’s (Bill Hader) job as a hitman into other areas, primarily personal relationships where the violence isn’t necessarily physical, and in Hollywood, as Berkman’s love interest Sally Reed (Sarah Goldberg) adapts her one-woman play based on her past abusive relationship into a show.
