SAG Nominees: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 3/5, missing David and Sheen
Who’s missing: David Duchovny (Californication), Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Jeremy Piven (Entourage)

You read correctly, folks. Fellow actors think that Charlie Sheen (Two and a Half Men) delivers one of the top five male comedy performances on television. When he was last nominated in 2005, it seemed like it might have been a fluke, but no, now he’s back to edge out fan favorites like Jim Parsons and far more talented performers like David Duchovny. It doesn’t make much sense at all. Praising Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm) for his acting also seems a bit bizarre, but at least he’s putting in some effort. Tony Shalhoub (Monk) earns his seventh career nomination for his departed series, while expected nominees Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) and Steve Carrell (The Office) are back for another round. Baldwin is defending champ, having taken home the past three consecutive trophies. Shalhoub won twice, in 2003 and 2004.

Who could win? Give it to the guy going out, Shalhoub.
