SAG AWARDS 2019: TV PREDICTIONS

Maybe we’ll see a lot of repeat wins, maybe it’ll be MAISEL’s and VERSACE’s year, or maybe the SAG Awards will mix it up this year. Here’s what I think will happen


Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series
THE AMERICANS
BETTER CALL SAUL
THE HANDMAID’S TALE
OZARK
THIS IS US

I hope it’s not THIS IS US, but the SAG-AFTRA do tend to repeat winners, a lot, so I think the Pearsons, etc. will be up to collect their Actors again.

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series
Julia Garner, OZARK
Laura Linney, OZARK
Elisabeth Moss, THE HANDMAID’S TALE
Sandra Oh, KILLING EVE
Robin Wright, HOUSE OF CARDS

They could finally give this one to Moss, who lost out to Claire Foy over the last two years. However, I think it will be Sandra Oh.

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series
Jason Bateman, OZARK
Sterling K. Brown, THIS IS US
Joseph Fiennes, THE HANDMAID’S TALE
John Krasinski, Tom Clancy’s JACK RYAN
Bob Odenkirk, BETTER CALL SAUL

There don’t seem to be any strong frontrunners, so I think they’ll give it again to Sterling K. Brown. The SAG-AFTRA love repeat wins (remember when Alec Baldwin won seven consecutive years for 30 ROCK?). So even though I don’t think Brown deserves it, he will most likely win.


Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series
GLOW
ATLANTA
BARRY
THE KOMINSKY METHOD
THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL

I think thus is MAISEL’s year, especially after it wasn’t recognized last year.

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series
Alison Brie, GLOW
Alex Borstein, THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL
Rachel Brosnahan, THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL
Jane Fonda, GRACE & FRANKIE
Lily Tomlin, GRACE & FRANKIE

Rachel Brosnahan was overlooked last year too. I think the SAG-AFTRA have to more than make it up to her for that. And she definitely deserves it for season two also.

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series
Alan Arkin, THE KOMINSKY METHOD
Michael Douglas, THE KOMINSKY METHOD
Bill Hader, BARRY
Henry Winkler, BARRY
Tony Shaloub, THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL

The SAG-AFTRA like Tony Shaloub. He won twice for MONK. But since he didn’t even make the cut last year, I think they’ll give it to Michael Douglas instead.

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a TV Movie or Limited Series
Amy Adams, SHARP OBJECTS
Patricia Clarkson, SHARP OBJECTS
Patricia Arquette, ESCAPE AT DANNEMORA
Penélope Cruz, THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE: AMERICAN CRIME STORY
Emma Stone, MANIAC

I think it’ll be Patricia. Which one? Arquette.

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a TV Movie or Limited Series
Antonio Banderas, GENIUS: PICASSO
Darren Criss, THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE: AMERICAN CRIME STORY
Hugh Grant, A VERY ENGLISH SCANDAL
Anthony Hopkins, KING LEAR
Bill Pullman, THE SINNER

This is Darren Criss’ year. He’s taking this one home, just as he did with the Emmy and the Golden Globe.
