Los Angeles Times - - THE ENVELOPE -

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.”
