SAG Nominees: Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 5/5
Who’s missing? Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black), Kristen Bell (The Good Place), Debra Messing (Will and Grace), Issa Rae (Insecure)

I’m thrilled to have predicted exactly one category correctly, and this is it! Though they’re not contending for Golden Globes, Jane Fonda (Grace and Frankie) and Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie) are back here for the third year in a row, joined by sophomore nominee Alison Brie (GLOW), continuing to go strong after her Emmy snub. They weren’t honored here last year but both won Emmys, and now Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) and Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) will be competing against each other in this race. This is a fun list, and though I’m sad that Bell couldn’t be here, I’m all for it. Her show continues to be good, but Aduba was no longer the right representative from it to be its sole nominee.

Who will win? I think Brosnahan will triumph.
