SAG Predictions: Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series

Last year’s nominees: Black-ish, Curb Your Enthusiasm, GLOW, Orange is the New Black, Veep

Two of last year’s nominees, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and champ “Veep,” won’t be back since they didn’t air new episodes in 2019. Three-time winner Orange is the New Black has fallen out of favor with almost every other awards body, and it may be time for that to happen here too. Black-ish could just as easily return as it could not, while GLOW stands a good chance of repeating. Two previous nominees, The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family, could easily return with spots open, but I expect other comedies could take their place. The underappreciated The Good Place seems like a fitting bet for one spot, and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which this group didn’t embrace in its infancy at this time last year, shouldn’t have any trouble getting nominated this time around. Barry is another likely contender, though Atlanta, which didn’t earn any bids for its first season, could find itself honored too. Two Golden Globe-honored shows, Kidding and The Kominsky Method, might also show up.

Current predictions:
The Good Place
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
