SAG Winner Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Miniseries or Made-for-TV Movie

The competition: Adrien Brody’s master escape artist (Houdini), Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock), Richard Jenkins’ companion (Olive Kitteridge), Mark Ruffalo’s gay writer (The Normal Heart), and Billy Bob Thornton’s devious troublemaker (Fargo).

For your information: This is the first TV nomination for these five men, but we have two double nominees represented here this year – Cumberbatch and Ruffalo, who are also recognized for film roles. All but Cumberbatch have been nominated once before for film work, and Thornton was nominated twice before. Cumberbatch won the Emmy and wasn’t nominated for the Golden Globe, which went to Thornton.

Who should win: I’ve only seen Thornton.

Who will win: I think this will go to Cumberbatch, but it could be Thornton too.
