SAG Winner Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

The competition: Alec Baldwin’s Conservative TV boss (30 Rock), Ty Burrell’s goofy dad (Modern Family), Steve Carell’s wacky manager (The Office), Chris Colfer’s individualistic high school performer (Glee), and Ed O’Neill’s sarcastic patriarch (Modern Family).

For your information: Baldwin has won this award every year for the past four years. Carell has lost to him for four years in a row. This is the first individual nomination for Burrell, Colfer, and O’Neill. Every performer in this category is also nominated as a member of his ensemble cast.

Who should win: Baldwin’s had his time. Burrell!

Who will win: It’s a tough call. Hopefully all of the “Modern Family” enthusiasm should dethrone Baldwin, but who wins? I’ll go with Burrell since costar Eric Stonestreet isn’t nominated. Back in the day, supporting players like Sean Hayes and David Hyde Pierce regularly won this award.

I don't know. I think Chris Colfer has a pretty good chance to win. I say this because of last night's Golden Globe ceremony. When the TV awards presented, the movie star crowd looked bored. EXCEPT when Chris Colfer won. They seemed to love him. So I think Chris might win this.

You raise a good point. I'll admit that I made this prediction before the Globes ceremony, and Colfer may in fact have a chance to upset. I'm more inclined to root for him because of his wonderful, humble acceptance speech, though I really think the men of "Modern Family" deserve it much more.
