SAG Winner Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Miniseries or Made-for-TV Movie

The competition: Mahershala Ali’s determined investigator (True Detective), Russell Crowe’s controlling executive (The Loudest Voice), Jared Harris’ Soviet scientist (Chernobyl), Jharrel Jerome’s wrongfully imprisoned defendant (When They See Us), and Sam Rockwell’s fervent director (Fosse/Verdon).

For your information: Ali and Rockwell have won the film award for supporting actor the past three years, for “Moonlight” and “Green Book,” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” respectively. Each also took home an ensemble prize for their film work. Rockwell contends this year as part of the “Jojo Rabbit” ensemble. Crowe won in 2001 for “A Beautiful Mind” and received four other individual nominations and six ensemble bids. Harris won in 2009 as part of the “Mad Men” ensemble. Jerome was previously nominated with Ali as part of the “Moonlight” cast. Jerome won the Emmy and the Critics’ Choice Award, and Crowe won the Globe.

Who should win? I only watched all of Crowe and Jerome’s work, and they’re both so fantastic in different ways.

Who will win? I’ll pick Crowe over Jerome, though it could be either of them or even Harris.
