SAG Winner Predictions: Best Ensemble in a Drama Series

The competition: The Crown, Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things, This Is Us

For your information: This is the sixth nomination for “Game of Thrones” and the second for both “The Crown” and “Stranger Things,” which won last year. Sophomore series “This Is Us” and freshman series “The Handmaid’s Tale” are new to the race. Only “Stranger Things” has two performers nominated; the rest all have one. Multiple wins for one show are common in this category: “Downton Abbey” won three times, “Boardwalk Empire” won twice, and “Mad Men” won twice in recent years.

Who should win? I like “The Handmaid’s Tale” is strongest but I’d be fine with “Stranger Things” or “Game of Thrones” too.

Who will win? I think that we’ll see a repeat of Stranger Things though it could be “This Is Us” or “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
