SAG Winner Predictions: Best Actress in a Mini-Series or TV Movie

The nominees: Anna Paquin for “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee”, Vanessa Redgrave for “The Fever”, Ellen Burstyn for “For One More Day”, Queen Latifah for “Life Support”, Debra Messing for “The Starter Wife”, and Gena Rowlands for “What If God Were The Sun?”.
For your information: Redgrave has one previous nomination and one win. Paquin received a nomination in the ensemble category for 2000’s “Almost Famous”. Burstyn was nominated for the 2000 film “Requiem for a Dream”. Latifah was nominated for “Chicago” in 2002 and won as part of the ensemble, and is nominated as part of the ensemble of “Hairspray” this year. Rowlands was nominated for the 1996 film “Unhook the Stars”. Messing was nominated five years in a row for her work in the ensemble of “Will & Grace”, winning the first year and picking up two individual nominations along the way.
Who should win: Out of the performances I have seen – Paquin, Latifah, and Messing – … no one.
Who will win: I have no idea. Perhaps Messing?
