SAG Winner Predictions: Best Female Actor in a Drama Series

The competition: Glenn Close’s vicious lawyer (Damages), Mariska Hargitay’s hard-working cop (Law & Order: SVU), Julianna Margulies’ hard-working lawyer and mother (The Good Wife), Elisabeth Moss’ copywriter ahead of her time (Mad Men) and Kyra Sedgwick’s deputy police chief (The Closer).

For your information: All five women in this category are returning nominees. Margulies won this award last year on her first nomination for her current show, amassing two individual wins for “ER” earlier in her career. Close won a trophy in 2004 for “The Lion in Winter” and has now been nominated three times for her current times. Hargitay is now on nod number six and Sedgwick makes it five, and neither has won before. Moss wasn’t nominated last year but was the year before. Margulies, Moss, and Sedgwick are also nominated this year as members of their ensemble casts.

Who should win: Margulies, Moss, or Sedgwick

Who will win: Unless voters really go “Mad Men” crazy, this may be the time for recent Emmy winner Sedgwick to pick up her first SAG trophy.
