Will Win - Millie Bobbie Brown "Stranger Things"
Could Win - Chrissy Metz "This is Us" or Thandie Newton "Westworld"
Should Win - Chrissy Metz "This is Us" or Millie Bobbie Brown "Stranger Things"
Commentary - If the popular ballot reflects the cultural zeitgeist then Millie Bobby Brown, who has been campaigning like its going out of style will win, plus at such a young age, her performance is astonishing. But in this wide-open race with all new contenders, this really is a three-way race, and child actors have never had the best luck with Emmy voters. Chrissy Metz is the breakout star of This is Us, which is clearly beloved by the actors, and Thandie Newton could be the big win for Westworld, which got loads of support, much of which was unexpected, across the categories. All of that being said, I am sticking with Brown. She is working the circuit, her character immediately became iconic, and Stranger Things is going to win at least one big award that night.
