SAG Nominees: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 4/5, picking Parsons over Burgess
Who’s missing: Louie Anderson (Baskets), Donald Glover (Atlanta), Thomas Haden Church (Divorce), Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory)

So at least my theory held here. We had three of last year’s nominees - Ty Burrell (Modern Family), William H. Macy (Shameless), and Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent). One nominee, Parsons, was dismissed, but his show is still up for the ensemble prize. In his place we got two new nominees, both from shows that are not in their first eligible years – hence snubs for Anderson and Glover. Anthony Anderson (Black-ish) is in with his show also nominated in the ensemble race, and Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) is here along with costar Ellie Kemper, and I think those are both fun choices. This is a solid list.

Who could win? Last year it went to Tambor, and I think he’ll take it again this year.
