SAG Winner Predictions: Best Actor in a Comedy Series

The nominees: Jeremy Piven for “Entourage”, Ricky Gervais for “Extras”, Tony Shalhoub for “Monk”, Steve Carrell for “The Office”, and Alec Baldwin for “30 Rock”.
For your information: Shalhoub has four previous nominations and two wins. Carrell was nominated for his individual performance last year but won two trophies as a member of the ensemble casts of “The Office” and “Little Miss Sunshine”. Baldwin won this award last year and has three previous individual nominations and two ensemble mentions. Piven and his cast were both nominated for the first time last year. This is Gervais’ first nomination. “Entourage”, “The Office”, and “30 Rock” are nominated for Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series this year.
Who should win: Piven, Shalhoub, Carrell, and Baldwin – all fine choices.
Who will win: Beats me. My gut says Gervais, but I would not be surprised by any of these five.
