SAG Winner Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Drama Series

The competition: Steve Buscemi’s Atlantic City gangster (Boardwalk Empire), Bryan Cranston’s meth cooker (Breaking Bad), Michael C. Hall’s kind-hearted serial killer (Dexter), Jon Hamm’s promiscuous ad man (Mad Men), and Hugh Laurie’s quirky doctor (House).

For your information: This is the sixth consecutive nomination for Laurie, who won in 2008 and 2006. Hall won last year on his fourth nomination, and Hamm receives his fourth nod this year. Cranston was nominated last year, and Buscemi receives his first individual nomination this year for his freshman series. Buscemi, Hall, and Hamm are also nominated this year as members of their ensemble casts.

Who should win: Cranston, Hall, Hamm – take your pick

Who will win: I think this is the year that SAG voters, who have recognized his show’s ensemble the past two years, finally honor Hamm, though Cranston is just as likely.
