SAG Nominees: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 4/6, picking McCormack over David and Maron
Who’s missing? Jeffrey Tambor, Tituss Burgess, Ty Burrell, Eric McCormack, Kevin Bacon,

I didn’t even notice that Burrell missed out on a nod (as did his show) after seven nominations, out along with Burgess and Tambor, making way for a list of mostly returning nominees. Sean Hayes (Will and Grace) is the only member of his cast to return after his show’s long hiatus, and this six-time nominee and three-time winner shouldn’t be underestimated. Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm) is also back after bids in 2005 and 2009, along with his show’s ensemble, which is a bit strange. Two-time winner and reigning champ William H. Macy (Shameless) is back, and how nice it would have been for his show to score an ensemble bid. Anthony Anderson (Black-ish) returns after joining the list last year, and I’m so thrilled for Aziz Ansari (Master of None). And this year’s left-field inclusion is Marc Maron (GLOW), who was interesting in the pilot of that show and who I don’t think anyone expected to show up here. This is a decent list to be sure even if it’s not who I would have picked.

Who will win? I’d go with Hayes over Macy or Ansari.
