SAG Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Comedy Series

Last year’s nominees: Nicholas Hoult (The Great), Dan Levy (Schitt’s Creek), Eugene Levy (Schitt’s Creek), Jason Sudeikis (Ted Lasso), Ramy Youssef (Ramy)

Two of last year’s nominees are eligible this time around, and it’s a good bet they’ll be back: Nicholas Hoult (The Great) and Jason Sudeikis (Ted Lasso). While I’d love to see a few of the former’s costars here too, I think it’s much more likely that we’ll get Brett Goldstein (Ted Lasso), who could also be joined by any of the three men nominated with him at the Emmys. Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method) is a good bet since he was a nominee for his show’s first two seasons, and he could be joined by a handful of past nominees who are eligible: Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), and William H. Macy (Shameless). Kenan Thompson (Kenan) was an Emmy nominee, and Matt Barry (What We Do in the Shadows) and Kayvan Novak (What We Do in the Shadows) could benefit from enthusiasm from that awards body for the previous season of that show. Steve Martin (Only Murders in the Building) and Martin Short (Only Murders in the Building), both cited by the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Association, seem like good bets.

Current predictions:
Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method)
Nicholas Hoult (The Great)
Steve Martin (Only Murders in the Building)
Jason Sudeikis (Ted Lasso)
Martin Short (Only Murders in the Building)
