SAG Winner Predictions: Best Ensemble in a Drama Series

The competition: Boardwalk Empire, The Closer, Dexter, The Good Wife, Mad Men

For your information: This is the fourth consecutive nomination for “Mad Men,” which has won this award the past two years. “The Closer” is on its fifth nod, while “Dexter” is on its third and “The Good Wife” is on its second. Freshman series “Boardwalk Empire” joins the ranks this year. Only one freshman series has ever won this award, and that was “The Sopranos” when it dethroned four-time champ “ER” in 1999.

Who should win: All great, though “Dexter” isn’t quite in the same league in terms of all its players.

Who will win: The circumstances this year – one new HBO show up against four previously-nominated series – are a bit too familiar to count out “Boardwalk Empire,” but I think the cast of The Good Wife could steal the spotlight.
