SAG Winner Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Drama Series

The competition: Steve Buscemi’s Atlantic City gangster (Boardwalk Empire), Peter Dinklage’s talkative heir (Game of Thrones), Woody Harrelson’s carefree cop (True Detective), Matthew McConaughey’s harrowed cop (True Detective), and Kevin Spacey’s corrupt politician (House of Cards).

For your information: This is Buscemi’s fifth consecutive nomination. He won for the first and second seasons of the show. Dinklage and Spacey are both back after being nominated last year. Harrelson and McConaughey are new to the race, each earning their second career nominations. Harrelson was nominated in 2012 for TV movie “Game Change,” and McConaughey won last year for the film “Dallas Buyers Club.” Buscemi, Dinklage, and Spacey are also nominated as part of their ensemble casts.

Who should win: All great choices – I’d probably give it to Dinklage or Spacey.

Who will win: Without Bryan Cranston or “Fargo” in the way, it’s McConaughey vs. Golden Globe winner Spacey. I’ll give the edge tentatively to the former.
