SAG Winner Predictions: Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series

The competition: Black-ish, Curb Your Enthusiasm, GLOW, Orange is the New Black, Veep

For your information: “Orange is the New Black” has won this award the past three years. “Veep” is on its fifth consecutive nomination, and “Black-ish” is on its second. “Curb Your Enthusiasm” was nominated previously in 2005 and 2009. Freshman series “GLOW,” which is actually the only show with two performers rather than one nominated, rounds out the list. Four years ago and beforehand, “Modern Family,” “Glee,” and “The Office” won this award.

Who should win? I don’t watch “Black-ish” and didn’t see more than the pilot of “GLOW.” I don’t think that the ensemble on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” should really be here, and I’m not quite as gung-ho about “Veep” as everyone else but wouldn’t have a problem with it finally winning. SAG seems to be the only awards body still paying attention to “Orange is the New Black,” which honestly deserves this award just as much this year as it did the last three.

Who will win? I do think that a change is coming, and Veep seems likely to dethrone “Orange is the New Black” this year.
