SAG Winner Predictions: Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series

The competition: Uzo Aduba’s hyperactive inmate (Orange is the New Black), Julie Bowen’s neurotic mother (Modern Family), Edie Falco’s pill-popping nurse (Nurse Jackie), Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ sarcastic vice-president (Veep), and Amy Poehler’s dedicated government employee (Parks and Recreation).

For your information: This is Falco’s sixth consecutive nomination, and she won three individual SAG Awards for her role on “The Sopranos.” Louis-Dreyfus won for this role last year and was nominated seven times before for two other TV roles, and won twice for “Seinfeld.” This is Bowen’s third nomination, and Poehler returns to the lineup for the second time after being snubbed last year. This is the first nomination for Aduba. Aduba, Bowen, and Louis-Dreyfus are also nominated as part of their ensemble casts. The Golden Globe winner in the corresponding category, Gina Rodriguez, isn’t nominated here.

Who should win: Poehler or Louis-Dreyfus

Who will win: I don’t see how it goes to anyone but Louis-Dreyfus since SAG voters like what they like.
