Now in its 10th season, “Big Bang Theory” continues to be a popular staple of network television, and SAG voters have a history of rewarding successful, money-making sitcoms. “Seinfeld” won the prize three times in 1994, 1996, and 1997. It’s streak was briefly interrupted by a “Friends” victory in 1995. “The Office” won back-to-back awards in 2006 and 2007, while “Modern Family” had a three year winning streak from 2010-2012. Sometimes they’re late to the game, like with Emmy favorites “Frasier” in 1999, “30 Rock” in 2008, or “Everybody Loves Raymond” in 2002.
