SAG Nominees: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 4/5, missing Scott
Who’s missing? Henry Winkler (Barry), Eugene Levy (Schitt’s Creek), Ben Platt (The Politician), Paul Rudd (Living with Yourself), Ramy Youssef (Ramy)

I predicted last year’s exact lineup, which didn’t happen, but it came close! Honestly, I’m fine with Winkler, who earned a repeat Golden Globe bid on Monday, being replaced by Andrew Scott (Fleabag), who rebounded from an Emmy snub with a very well-deserved mention here and at the Globes. Despite not being nominated by the Globes, last year’s winner in this race, Tony Shalhoub (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) is back, along with another Emmy winner, Bill Hader (Barry), and costars Alan Arkin (The Kominsky Method) and Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method). All five of these men are also nominated as part of their ensembles. I have some catching up to do with the most recent seasons Shalhoub’s show and Arkin’s and Douglas’, but I’m excited about this list.

Who will win? I think maybe Scott wins this for the Hot Priest unless Shalhoub repeats.
