SAG Nominees: Best Female Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 2/5
Who’s missing: Claire Danes (Homeland), Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: SVU), Mireille Enos (The Killing), Margo Martindale (Justified), Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife), Connie Britton (American Horror Story), Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights)

Boy did I bet on the wrong horses. This is not a good day for Connie Britton, who was snubbed for both of her shows which received mentions for Kyle Chandler in the male actor category and Jessica Lange (American Horror Story) here for her seriously creepy work on the new FX horror show. Kathy Bates (Harry's Law) also managed to pop up in here, which shouldn’t have surprised me given SAG’s category-switching love for “Boston Legal” back in the day. This was a great day for
Glenn Close (Damages), who got nominated here again and stays in the race for the Best Actress Oscar thanks to her mention for “Albert Nobbs.” SAG voters did not follow Emmy cues and snub Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer), despite the omission of that show’s cast, and also included reigning champion Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife).

Who could win? Probably Margulies again.
