SAG Winner Predictions: Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series

The competition: Uzo Aduba’s hyperactive inmate (Orange is the New Black), Edie Falco’s pill-popping nurse (Nurse Jackie), Ellie Kemper’s impressionable cult escapee (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ sarcastic vice-president (Veep), and Amy Poehler’s dedicated government employee (Parks and Recreation).

For your information: Kemper is the only new addition to this race, and what a welcome one she is. Aduba won this award last year on her first try. This is Falco’s seventh consecutive nomination for this role, and she was previously nominated seven times for “The Sopranos.” She won three times for “The Sopranos.” This is Louis-Dreyfus third consecutive nomination for this role. She was previously nominated twice for “The New Adventures of Old Christine” and five times for “Seinfeld.” She won in 2014 for “Veep” and twice for “Seinfeld.” This is Poehler’s third nomination. Aduba and Louis-Dreyfus are also nominated as part of their shows’ ensembles. Both Falco and Poehler’s shows went off the air this year. This category has a history of repeat winners, so don’t be shocked if Aduba or Louis-Dreyfus prevail.

Who should win: Poehler!

Who will win: I’d love to say it will be Poehler finally, but I’ll go with Aduba again.
