SAG Winner Predictions: Best Female Actor in a Miniseries or Made-for-TV Movie

The competition: Claire Danes’ Temple Grandin (Temple Grandin), Catherine O’Hara’s kindly aunt (Temple Grandin), Julia Ormond’s determined mother (Temple Grandin), Winona Ryder’s supportive wife (When Love is Not Enough), and Susan Sarandon’s civil rights worker (You Don’t Know Jack).

For your information: Only Sarandon has been nominated for an individual SAG award before, winning in 1995 for her lead role in the film “Dead Man Walking,” and receiving two additional nominations, one for the film “The Client” in 1994, and the other in this category two years ago for “Bernard and Doris.” The last and only time three women from the same project were nominated in this category was in 2003 with “Angels in America,” when Meryl Streep beat Mary-Louise Parker and Emma Thompson.

Who should win: I haven’t seen a single one of these performances, sadly.

Who will win: It’s hard to image it not being Danes.
