SAG Nominees: Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 2/5, picking only Bowen and Louis-Dreyfus
Who’s missing? Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), Allison Janney (Mom), Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory)

This ranks as one of my worst categories, since I bet on the wrong horses for scientific reasons that didn’t pan out. I think most people were surprised that Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black) scored the lone nomination for her show in this category, especially since Kate Mulgrew would probably have been the best bet if star Taylor Schilling wasn’t going to make the cut. Last year’s nominee Mayim Bialik is out, while Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie) is still in and Emmy winner Allison Janney is nowhere to be found. Julie Bowen (Modern Family) and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) return, and, so fantastically, so does Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), who was snubbed last year after just one previous nomination. This is a fun list, and Poehler definitely still tops it for me.

Who could win? Probably Louis-Dreyfus, but I feel like Aduba could take it too.
