SAG Winner Predictions: Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series

The competition: Barry, Fleabag, The Kominsky Method, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Schitt’s Creek

For your information: Three of last year’s nominees are back. “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” which has three performers – Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein, and Tony Shalhoub – nominated, is here for its third season, after winning this award on its first try last year. “Barry” and “The Kominsky Method” return for their second consecutive nominations with one and two actors nominated individually, respectively. “Schitt’s Creek” is in the running for the first time for its fifth season, with actress Catherine O’Hara nominated. “Fleabag,” which won the Emmy, Golden Globe, and Critics’ Choice Award, has two stars, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Andrew Scott, nominated.

Who should win? I mostly enjoyed what I saw of “Schitt’s Creek,” but it certainly wouldn’t be my choice. I don’t know that the whole ensemble of “The Kominsky Method” deserves the same praise as its stars, while “Barry” is a solid choice even if it doesn’t immediately come to mind. Between “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Fleabag,” I’m torn.
Who will win? It’s possible “Fleabag” wins here too, or “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” repeats, but I’m betting on Schitt’s Creek.
