SAG Nominees: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 3/5, picking Parsons and Stonestreet over Colfer and O’Neill
Who’s missing: Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family), Matthew Morrison (Glee), Thomas Jane (Hung)

I’m beginning to seriously take issue with all these mentions for Chris Colfer (Glee). For one thing, unlike the Golden Globes, this name of this category only covers comedies and not musicals (the same is true of the Emmys). He may be good in his role, but I don’t think he’s comparable to the likes of Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Steve Carell (The Office), or the fantastically recognized Ty Burrell (Modern Family). I’m also very pleased to see Ed O’Neill (Modern Family) – who I predicted for a Globe nod instead – get a nomination after being the only adult cast member snubbed at the Emmys. And, interestingly enough, especially after the strong Globes showing on Tuesday, Emmy winner Jim Parsons does not break into the race here.

Who could win? Baldwin has won this category for the past four years in a row. Maybe Carell or Burell finally dethrones him this year?
