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

My predictions: 3/5, missing Hopkins and Pullman
Who’s missing? Benedict Cumberbatch (Patrick Melrose), Jonah Hill (Maniac), Daniel Bruhl (The Alienist)

I have little investment in this category, especially since the two less expected nominees are from projects I haven’t seen at all: Anthony Hopkins (King Lear) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner), an interesting inclusion given that the season one star of his anthology series, Jessica Biel, wasn’t honored last year by SAG. Hill missed it even while his costar Emma Stone got in. Antonio Banderas (Genius: Picasso) and Hugh Grant (A Very English Scandal) are here on their own, while Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) is accompanied by one female costar, Penelope Cruz, in the corresponding race.

Who will win? I’ve seen just one episode of Criss’ work and all of Grant’s, but of course I’d love to see the latter rewarded. My guess is Criss.
