SAG Winner Predictions: Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series

The competition: Edie Falco’s pill-popping nurse (Nurse Jackie), Tina Fey’s nerdy TV writer (30 Rock), Jane Lynch’s tyrannical cheerleading coach (Glee), Sofia Vergara’s Colombian wife (Modern Family), and Betty White’s wise-cracking scene-stealer (Hot in Cleveland).

For your information: Despite being crowned with a life achievement award last year, White, who will be 89 at the time of the ceremony, has never received a SAG nomination before. Fey has won this category for the past three years running. Falco was nominated last year for this role, and has won three SAG awards for her performance on “The Sopranos.” This is the first individual nomination for both Lynch and Vergara. Fey, Lynch, Vergara, and White are also nominated as a member of their ensemble casts.

Who should win: Fey has won so many times, so Vergara deserves it this year.

Who will win: It’s never a good idea to bet against Betty White.
