SAG Winner Predictions: Best Ensemble in a Drama Series

The competition: The Handmaid’s Tale, The Morning Show, Squid Game, Succession, Yellowstone

For your information: While only “Squid Game” is a freshman series, the only returning nominee in this category is “The Handmaid’s Tale,” which earns its fourth overall nomination after it took last year off the air. It has one performer nominated, while “Squid Game” has two, “The Morning Show” has three, and “Succession” has four. Only “CSI” managed to win this prize, in 2004, with no performers singled out, which is the situation for “Yellowstone” this year. Repeat winners are very common. “Squid Game” is the first non-English series nominated in this category.

Who should win? I haven’t watched “Yellowstone” since the pilot and didn’t finish “Squid Game.” While it’s taken me a while to come around to it, I do think “Succession” is the right choice here, though “The Handmaid’s Tale” would still be a solid choice.

Who will win? It could be “Squid Game,” but I’m sticking with Succession.
