SAG Nominees: Best Male Actor in a Miniseries or Made-for-TV Movie

My predictions: 3/5, picking Sheen and Strathairn over Goodman and Stewart
Who’s missing: Michael Sheen (The Special Relationship), David Strathairn (Temple Grandin), Idris Elba (Luther), Ian McShane (The Pillars of the Earth)

SAG voters do love their Shakespearean actors, which is probably a big part of the reason that Patrick Stewart (Macbeth) got in. Globe-snubbed John Goodman (You Don’t Know Jack) takes the one supporting spot filled by the oddly omitted David Strathairn (Temple Grandin), joining fellow cast member Al Pacino (You Don’t Know Jack). Globe nominees Dennis Quaid (The Special Relationship) and Edgar Ramirez (Carlos) round out the list.

Who could win? Either Stewart or Pacino.
