This is a list of winners of the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie. Prior to 1975, supporting actors in miniseries and movies were included in either the comedy or drama categories along with regular series. From 1975 to 1978, the award was called Outstanding Single Performance by a Supporting Actor in a Comedy or Drama Special. Despite the category's name, appearances in multiple episodes of miniseries, such as first winner Anthony Quayle's in QB VII, were included. In 1979, the award was renamed Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or a Special, then Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Special in 1986, then the current name in 1998.
