SAG Winner Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

The competition: Ty Burrell’s goofy dad (Modern Family), Louis C.K.’s wry comedian (Louie), William H. Macy’s depraved patriarch (Shameless), Jim Parsons’ stuck-up scientist (The Big Bang Theory), and Eric Stonestreet’s flamboyant music teacher (Modern Family).

For your information: “30 Rock” is gone, but the one man who ever beat Alec Baldwin – Burrell – is back. This is his fifth consecutive nomination. Stonestreet, who wasn’t nominated last year, is back with his third overall nomination. Parsons is also on his third nomination. C.K. wasn’t eligible last year but was nominated the year before that. Macy has been nominated once for film work three times for TV movie and miniseries work. He won in 2002 for “Door to Door.” Burrell, Parsons, and Stonestreet are all nominated as part of their ensembles. The Golden Globe winner in the corresponding category, Jeffrey Tambor, isn’t nominated here.

Who should win: Burrell or Macy

Who will win: It will probably be Burrell again, though multiple Emmy winner Parsons could break through too.
