SAG Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

Last year’s nominees: Aziz Ansari (Master of None), Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Sean Hayes (Will and Grace), William H. Macy (Shameless), Marc Maron (GLOW)

Both Ansari and David won’t be back since their shows didn’t produce new episodes this past year. William H. Macy (Shameless) won this award three out of the past four years, and it’s unlikely that he’d be snubbed now given SAG voters’ love for the familiar, even if he did miss out on a Globe nomination this year. The same goes for Sean Hayes (Will and Grace), while the return of Marc Maron (GLOW) is less certain. The past two Emmy winners, Donald Glover (Atlanta) and Bill Hader (Barry), are likely to be recognized by SAG for the first time this year. New Globe nominees Jim Carrey (Kidding) and Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method) both stand a chance even though freshman series are rarely welcomed into this category, and, though he missed out on a Globe nomination, Ted Danson (The Good Place) seems like a friendly face to join this field. Supporting actors Alan Arkin (The Kominsky Method) and Henry Winkler (Barry) might also find themselves honored.

Current predictions:
Ted Danson (The Good Place)
Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method)
Bill Hader (Barry)
William H. Macy (Shameless)
Henry Winkler (Barry)
