SAG Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Drama Series

Last year’s nominees: Jason Bateman (Ozark), Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), David Harbour (Stranger Things), Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul)

Dinklage and Harbour aren’t eligible this year since their shows didn’t air in 2018. Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us), last year’s winner, is still hot, though missing out on a Golden Globe bid, along with Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), might make them vulnerable, though SAG tends to keep shows and actors around much longer than that organization. Jason Bateman (Ozark) did repeat at the Globes, joined by newcomers Stephan James (Homecoming), Richard Madden (Bodyguard), and Billy Porter (Pose). He won an Emmy and just received his first Golden Globe bid, so maybe it’s time Matthew Rhys (The Americans) earns a SAG nomination for the final season of his show. Supporting Emmy nominee Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid’s Tale) could also be an addition to this lineup, as could lead acting nominees Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us), Jeffrey Wright (Westworld), or Ed Harris (Westworld).

Current predictions:
Jason Bateman (Ozark)
Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us)
Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul)
Matthew Rhys (The Americans)
Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us)
