SAG Winner Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

The competition: Alec Baldwin’s TV executive (30 Rock), Ty Burrell’s goofy dad (Modern Family), Louis C.K.’s wry comedian (Louie), Jim Parsons’ stuck-up scientist (The Big Bang Theory), and Eric Stonestreet’s flamboyant father (Modern Family).

For your information: Astonishingly, Baldwin has won this award a staggering six times in a row. This is the third consecutive nomination for Burrell and the second for Stonestreet. Parsons and C.K. are both SAG nominees for the first time. Everyone but C.K. is also recognized as a member of his ensemble cast. The Golden Globe winner in the corresponding category, Don Cheadle, isn’t nominated here.

Who should win: Anyone but Baldwin

Who will win: It’s been six years, why not give him a seventh? This is likely Baldwin’s last shot, since his show will only air five episodes in 2013, so I see no reason why voters would wise up to the existence of any other funny men on TV now.
