SAG Predictions: Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series

Last year’s nominees: Barry, Fleabag, The Kominsky Method, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Schitt’s Creek

I did a very intensive deep-dive on this category for AwardsWatch back in November. There’s only one nominee from last year that could return this time, and that’s sure thing Schitt’s Creek. Curb Your Enthusiasm was nominated the last time it was eligible, and past nominees like Modern Family, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Will and Grace, and Black-ish could all feasibly be honored again. I think that What We Do in the Shadows will place here even if it’s hardly a guarantee in other categories. I would absolutely love if The Great or Ted Lasso made the cut, but I don’t know that either is too likely. The same goes for The Flight Attendant, Dead to Me, Ramy, Insecure, and The Politician. Even though it only aired five episodes in 2020, The Good Place getting a farewell nod feels very much in keeping with recent SAG trends.

Current predictions:
The Good Place
The Great
Schitt’s Creek
Ted Lasso
What We Do in the Shadows
