SAG Winner Predictions: Best Female Actor in a Drama Series

The competition: Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show), Jung Ho-yeon (Squid Game), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), Sarah Snook (Succession), Reese Witherspoon (The Morning Show)

For your information: Aniston won this prize on her last nomination for season one of this show. She has three additional previous nominations. Her costar Witherspoon has three previous nominations, with one win, for “Walk the Line” in 2005. This is Moss’ fourth nomination for this role, and she has three additional bids, for “Mad Men” and “Top of the Lake.” This category has had multiple nominees from a single series on many occasions, often leading to a victory for one of those actresses. Ho-Yeon is the first actor from a non-English show to be nominated in this category. All three represented series also have their ensembles nominated.

Who should win? Witherspoon actually impressed me quite a bit this season, and Snook would also be a good choice.

Who will win? It feels like Snook may actually be likeliest to win this.
