COMEDY SUPPORTING ACTOR
Alec Baldwin, “Saturday Night Live” Louie Anderson, “Baskets” Brian Tyree Henry, “Atlanta” Tony Hale, “Veep” Tituss Burgess, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” Ty Burrell, “Modern Family” Prime contenders: Laurence Fishburne, “black-ish”; Matt Walsh, “Veep”; Andre Braugher, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”; Timothy Simons, “Veep”; Lakeith Stanfield, “Atlanta”; Adam Driver, “Girls” Analysis: “What a season this has been … for me ... ,” Baldwin joked recently on the season finale of “Saturday Night Live.” Indeed, the current edition of “SNL” will be remembered mostly for the work of recurring guest stars Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy than anything the cast (save for McKinnon) did. Baldwin’s attention-grabbing turn as Donald Trump is sure to land him a nomination and probably the win, though it pales in comparison to the affecting work last year’s winner, Anderson, did on the superb second season of “Baskets.” Week in and week out, Anderson broke your heart. That’s tougher to do than an impression.
ALEC BALDWIN had quite the season as President Trump on “SNL.”
