SAG Nominees: Best Male Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 5/5
Who’s missing: Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom), Clive Owen (The Knick)

I’d be a whole lot prouder of myself if this had been the first category announced. Pretty much only here and in the Best Drama Series race did my theories hold (to both positive and negative effect elsewhere). Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire), who has been abandoned by Emmy and Golden Globe voters, still earned himself a nomination here for the fifth and final time. Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) and Kevin Spacey (House of Cards) are returning nominees, and Woody Harrelson (True Detective) and Matthew McConaughey (True Detective) are representing their show, which missed out on a Best Ensemble bid. This is a solid list, and all actors are worthy of nominations even if some important people did miss out.

Who could win? Here, I think McConaughey could manage it, but Spacey might swoop in for the win.
