SAG Nominees: Best Female Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 4/5, picking Jones over Hargitay
Who’s missing: January Jones (Mad Men), Patricia Arquette (Medium), Holly Hunter (Saving Grace), Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy)

This lineup really isn’t all that interesting, recognizing some Golden Globe-winning actresses that the Globes have now forgotten all about, like Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: SVU) and Glenn Close (Damages), the newly Globe-minted Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), and of course Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife) and Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer). It’s too bad a branch of actors couldn’t recognize the brilliance of Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy). For the record, Margulies, last year’s winner, is the only one of this crop who has ever won this award.

Who could win? Difficult to say given that no one aside from Margulies has had a terrific year, but maybe Sedgwick finally wins, both because of her Emmy victory this year and because her show still hung on in the Best Ensemble in a Drama Series category.
