SAG Nominees: Best Female Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie

My predictions: 4/5, missing Burstyn
Who’s missing? Allison Tolman (Fargo)

It’s sad to see that deserving young actresses like Tolman are often ignored in favor of more established veteran actresses like Ellen Burstyn (Flowers in the Attic). That said, I haven’t seen her performance, but it’s a shame to see Tolman passed over. Joining Burstyn are Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Honourable Woman), Frances McDormand (Olive Kitteridge), Julia Roberts (The Normal Heart), and Cicely Tyson (The Trip to Bountiful). Since I watched just the first hour of Gyllenhaal’s miniseries, my investment in this category is considerably diminished, but maybe I’ll have the chance to watch more before the ceremony at the end of January.

Who could win? I think McDormand will beat Roberts and Tyson.
