Here are all the TV category predictions
Outstanding Performance By An Ensemble In A Drama Series
■ BETTER CALL SAUL
■ THE CROWN
■ LOVECRAFT COUNTRY
The SAG-AFTRA love THE CROWN. They gave the ensemble a win for this last year, for a season that didn’t win too many awards otherwise. And the season in the running this year is an awards darling, so I’d be shocked if they award any other ensemble instead. Additionally, THE CROWN has already dominated the nominations in the individual actor categories, so there.
Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Drama Series
Gillian Anderson ■ THE CROWN
Olivia Colman ■ THE CROWN
Emma Corrin ■ THE CROWN
Julia Garner ■ OZARK
Laura Linney ■ OZARK
This is a tough one. I would have picked Emma Corrin, who’s won a lot for her turn as Lady Diana this awards cycle. However, with no supporting category, room had to be made for Gillian Anderson. And Anderson is a SAG-AFTRA favorite. She’s won twice before and has had six previous nominations in this category. So I think I’m going to go out on a limb here and predict her Iron Lady for the win.
Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Drama Series
Jason Bateman ■ OZARK
Sterling K. Brown ■ THIS IS US
Josh O’Connor ■ THE CROWN
Bob Odenkirk ■ BETTER CALL SAUL
Regé-Jean Page ■ BRIDGERTON
I think Josh O’Connor’s winning this one. Brown and Bateman have already won. Odenkirk hasn’t been lucky here with SAUL, and Page—please! And O’Connor’s Charles has won him a bunch already this season, so this will be another.
Outstanding Performance By An Ensemble In A Comedy Series
■ DEAD TO ME
■ THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT
■ THE GREAT
■ SCHITT’S CREEK
■ TED LASSO
SCHITT’S CREEK is winning this one. They have a four individual nominations among a total of 10. Now if that doesn’t indicate the ensemble win, I don’t know what does! Besides, the show’s swansong has been an awards favorite without a doubt.
Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Comedy Series
Christina Applegate ■ DEAD TO
Linda Cardellini ■ DEAD TO ME
Kaley Cuoco ■ THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT
Annie Murphy ■ SCHITT’S CREEK
Catherine O’Hara ■ SCHITT’S CREEK
This is Catherine O’Hara’s year. She’s been winning even where the show itself has been missing out, and I think this streak will continue for her farewell turn as Moira Rose.
Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Comedy Series
Nicholas Hoult ■ THE GREAT
Daniel Levy ■ SCHITT’S CREEK
Eugene Levy ■ SCHITT’S CREEK
Jason Sudeikis ■ TED LASSO
Ramy Youssef ■ RAMY
This one is between the Levys and Sudeikis. I might have gone for SCHITT’S, if there was only one Levy here. However, I think the show’s votes will get split in the process, and the equally strong contender from TED LASSO will be the winner.
Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Tv Movie Or Limited Series
Cate Blanchett ■ MRS. AMERICA
Michaela Coel ■ I MAY DESTROY YOU
Nicole Kidman ■ THE UNDOING
Anna Taylor-Joy ■ THE QUEEN’S GAMBIT
Kerry Washington ■ LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE
Anna Taylor-Joy’s been enjoying her reign at one awards show after another. And this will continue at the SAGs. Michaela Coel could be the upset here though, since she’s been praised quite heavily and hasn’t had a major nomination until this one.
Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Tv Movie Or Limited Series
Bill Camp ■ THE QUEEN’S GAMBIT
Daveed Diggs ■ HAMILTON
Ethan Hawke ■ THE GOOD LORD BIRD
Hugh Grant ■ THE UNDOING
Mark Ruffalo ■ I KNOW THIS MUCH IS TRUE
He’s won the Emmy and the Golden Globe for this, along with a couple of others. This is Mark Ruffalo’s category in this awards cycle. He’s winning this.
