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

The competition: Idris Elba (Luther), Ben Kingsley (Tut), Bill Murray (A Very Murray Christmas), Ray Liotta (Texas Rising), and Mark Rylance (Wolf Hall).

For your information: This is Kingsley’s fifth career nomination. He won this award in 2001 for “Anne Frank: The Whole Story.” Liotta was previously nominated once before, in this race in 1998 for “The Rat Pack.” Murray was nominated once before, for “Lost in Translation.” This is the first nomination for Elba and Rylance, and both of them are also nominated for their supporting film work this year too.

Who should win: I’ve seen a grand total of none of these performances.

Who will win: Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac isn’t here, so I’d give the edge to Rylance over Elba since I can’t imagine any of the others winning.
