SAG Predictions: Best Female Actor in a Comedy Series

Last year’s nominees: Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Alison Brie (GLOW), Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Jane Fonda (Grace and Frankie), Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie)

Like the corresponding male category, all five women are eligible again. That said, Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), who took home this award three times out of five nominations, should be back after her show took a year off. Last year’s winner Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) and her costar Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) should both be back, while it’s not as clear that they’ll be room for Alison Brie (GLOW), Jane Fonda (Grace and Frankie), and Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie). It’s all but guaranteed that Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) will make the cut, and she may be joined by Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll) and a past nominee in this category, Christina Applegate (Dead to Me). It’s possible that Olivia Colman (Fleabag) could score here too, but I doubt it.

Current predictions:
Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)
Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)
Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep)
Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll)
Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag)
