SUPPORTING ACTRESS DRAMA
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”
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.
