Los Angeles Times - - THE ENVELOPE -

Uzo Aduba, “Or­ange Is the New Black” Mil­lie Bobby Brown, “Stranger Things” Anne Dowd, “The Hand­maid’s Tale” Chrissy Metz, “This Is Us” Thandie New­ton, “West­world” Samira Wi­ley, “The Hand­maid’s Tale”

Win­ner: Metz

Analysis: This is a su­perb set of nom­i­nees, mak­ing for a wide-open race. “Stranger Things,” as I’ve al­ready men­tioned, has a lot of fans, and Brown bril­liantly cap­tured her char­ac­ter’s con­flicted emo­tions mostly with­out words. New­ton was the fan fa­vorite of a show that earned 22 Emmy nom­i­na­tions. But I’m lean­ing to­ward Metz at the mo­ment, as her “This Is Us” story line packed such an emo­tional wal­lop and her own late-bloom­ing story res­onates.
