SAG Winner Predictions: Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series

The competition: Uzo Aduba’s excitable inmate (Orange is the New Black), Alison Brie’s wrestler actress (GLOW), Jane Fonda’s retired executive (Grace and Frankie), Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ bitter politician (Veep), and Lily Tomlin’s eccentric artist (Grace and Frankie).

For your information: This is Aduba’s fourth consecutive nomination, and she won in 2014 and 2015. This is the second consecutive nomination for both Fonda and Tomlin, who was previously nominated for “The West Wing.” This is the fifth consecutive nomination for Louis-Dreyfus, who also received five nominations for “Seinfeld” and two for “The New Adventures of Old Christine.” She won twice for “Seinfeld” and twice for “Veep,” in 2013 and 2016. This is Brie’s first nomination. Aduba, Brie, and Louis-Dreyfus are all also nominated as part of their ensembles.

Who should win? Aduba is far from the best performer on her show these days. I like Brie but don’t watch her show. Fonda and Tomlin are both fun, as is Louis-Dreyfus, so I don’t really have a favorite from this list.

Who will win? I think that Louis-Dreyfus will take it again.
