SAG Nominees: Best Ensemble in a Drama Series

My predictions: 2/5, picking only “Downton Abbey” and “Game of Thrones”
Who’s missing: Better Call Saul, House of Cards, Mr. Robot, Ray Donovan

So much for SAG trends in the drama races this year. It’s the final year for Downton Abbey, and Game of Thrones is at the height of its popularity. Instead of other fan favorites, we get three new shows that are immensely hot right now. I opted not to even watch the pilots of The Crown and Stranger Things for different reasons, and I’m regretting that decision now, especially after both series earned two individual acting nominations. I’ll have to revisit those as soon as I’m finally caught up on the shows I do watch. And we also have Westworld, a formidable inclusion in this race.

Who could win? I haven’t seen two of the shows, but I still think that Downton Abbey will make it three in a row.
