SAG Nominees: Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 3/6
What’s missing? Girls, New Girl, Parks and Recreation, Veep

This year, SAG got better about honoring new shows, but this category contains only series that are four years old or more. It’s most lamentable because shows like Glee and The Office have been discarded by other organizations because of fading quality but continue to take spots from much more deserving fresher series. I won’t argue against 30 Rock and Modern Family because those were expected, and I’m puzzled about Nurse Jackie, which for some reason was now nominated for the first time. The Big Bang Theory is a fine choice, and it’s a shame that a fellow older series, Parks and Recreation, couldn’t have been mentioned. This category needs a serious modern update.

What could win? I think Modern Family takes it again.
