SAG Nominees: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 3/5, missing Macy and Stonestreet
Who’s missing? Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent), Don Cheadle (House of Lies)

So much for Amazon being the new Netflix. Tambor and his show are nowhere to be found, which is a shame, but another deserving actor - William H. Macy (Shameless) - joins the bunch, but it’s a shame that he’s finally being recognized for comedy when his show is actually now a drama. Last year’s nominee Cheadle is bumped for Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family), returning after a year off for his third nomination, to join costar Ty Burrell (Modern Family), who finally dethroned Alec Baldwin last year. Louis C.K. (Louie) is back after his show was on hiatus for a year, and Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) is back for nomination number three. Not much to say here – this is a fine if not exactly current list.

Who could win? I think Burrell will triumph again, but three-time Emmy champ Parsons might win here for the first time.
