SAG Nominees: Best Female Actor in a Miniseries or Made-for-TV Movie

My predictions: 3/5, missing Clarkson and Cruz
Who’s missing? Regina King (Seven Seconds), Connie Britton (Dirty John), Emma Thompson (King Lear)

The nominees here aren’t surprising at all, though I wasn’t confident about both Patricia Clarkson (Sharp Objects) and Penelope Cruz (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) making the jump up from the supporting race to this catch-all one. I’m happy that Emma Stone (Maniac) got in for a miniseries that I’ve found to be moderately worthwhile after missing out at the Golden Globes and with costar Jonah Hill still snubbed here. With King left off, Stone joins Amy Adams (Sharp Objects) as a double nominee in this race and the film supporting actress one. Rounding out the list is Patricia Arquette (Escape at Dannemora), making the cut even without any other support for her limited series.

Who will win? I’ve only sampled these performances, but I think that Adams is far enough out ahead.
