Shailene Woodley wants 'Killing Eve' star Jodie Comer to win the Emmy: 'She's the best f--king actress on this planet!' (Exclusive)

Season 2 of "Big Little Lies" may not be in contention at this year's Emmys, but Shailene Woodley still has some thoughts on who should win on Sunday.

Speaking to AOL's Gibson Johns in support of American Express' #BackOurOceans campaign, the 27-year-old actress said that she hopes Jodie Comer wins in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for her role in BBC America's hit series, "Killing Eve."

"To be honest, all I think about with this year’s Emmys is if Jodie Comer is going to win for 'Killing Eve,' because she better," Woodley proclaimed. "If people don’t vote for her, then there is something fundamentally wrong with our society, because she is the best f--king actress on this planet!"

Also in contention for the award at Sunday's Emmy Awards is Comer's co-star, Sandra Oh, who won a Golden Globe and a SAG Award for her turn in the first season of "Killing Eve," making her the favorite, as well as Emilia Clarke ("Game of Thrones"), Laura Linney ("Ozark"), previous winner Viola Davis ("How To Get Away With Murder"), Robin Wright ("House of Cards") and Mandy Moore ("This Is Us").

The first season of "Big Little Lies" picked up a whopping six awards back in 2017, with Woodley herself being nominated for her performance (she was beaten out by co-star Laura Dern), boding well for season 2's chances at next year's ceremony. 

When we asked Woodley how she's been able to reflect on the experience of filming "BLL," which was such a hit and captured so much of the zeitgeist during its run, she was quick to stress that the project was most rewarding in what it gave her personally in the friendships with her co-stars.

"Every show, every movie is so insular and special that it’s hard to say one was more so than the other, but what that show gave us was a deep, true bond of friends for forever," she told AOL. "That’s something that I’ll always cherish, be in admiration of and treasure, because it’s rare to put any group of human beings together and just assume that they’re going to get along no matter what. Then you add the fact that we’re all women and then you add the fact that we’re all actresses, and we just got really luck that we all admire and care for one another."
