SAG Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

Last year’s nominees: Ty Burrell (Modern Family), Louis C.K. (Louie), William H. Macy (Shameless), Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), and Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent).

The rundown: Four of the five nominees from last year were holdovers from the year before, with Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family) swapped out for Tambor, who was snubbed for his show’s first season. C.K. is out because his show didn’t air this past year. I wouldn’t count on other supporting players to pose real threats, but it’s possible that Donald Glover (Atlanta) may be just what SAG voters have in mind. Anthony Anderson (Black-ish) could show up too, and maybe a contender snubbed by the Globes, Thomas Haden Church (Divorce), could show up too, even though SAG voters don’t tend to love freshman series. Louie Anderson (Baskets) won a supporting Emmy, but I’m not sure I see him showing up in this race.

Current predictions: Anderson, Burrell, Macy, Parsons, Tambor
