SAG Nominees: Best Female Actor in a Drama Series

My predictions: 2/5, missing Garner, Linney, and Oh
Who’s missing? Thandie Newton (Westworld), Yvonne Strahovski (The Handmaid’s Tale), Keri Russell (The Americans), Julia Roberts (Homecoming)

I got so excited when I heard Julia Garner (Ozark) announced as a nominee. Even though I’m not a fan of that show, I did think she was excellent in the brief bit of season one I watched (this is for season two), and I’m happy to see a great young actress (she’s only 24) get recognized, joining last year’s nominated costar Laura Linney (Ozark). I guess Garner took the only supporting slot, bumping Newton and Strahovski, which is a shame. Russell also missed out but got in as part of her ensemble. Sandra Oh (Killing Eve) made the cut for a new series, once again without her costar Jodie Comer, which is unfortunate. Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) saw her show pretty well-received again, even if this category could have been populated by 80% of stars from her show. And rounding out the category we have the final bid for Robin Wright (House of Cards), who is aggravating me incredibly along with her show as I reach the midpoint of its last season.

Who will win? Something tells me this will be a farewell party for Wright.
