    When it comes to the SAG awards its hard to argue with playing it safe–especially on the Comedy Side. I’ve been burned so many times thinking they would finally stop repeat voting that I’ve decided to repeat; Modern Family, Burrell, and Dreyfus. I just haven’t yet been convinced that OISTNB has the heat to beat Modern Family—and the love to repeat in the comedy races–remember Baldwin and his long reign as champ.

    On the Drama side it seems like GOT’s time has come. McConaughey seems like the obvious winner but, I believe if anyone is going to pull of the upset its Dinklage, I could see a backlash of the “movie star slumming” it on tv and he seems the most likely to benefit.

    My one big go for broke prediction is Cummberbatch for Movie/Mini actor–he’s up for 3 awards and will likely loose the two on the film side. They may use this as their opportunity to award him. Keep in mind the first time Cranston won Best Actor was the year he received three nominations (Actor, Ensemble for BB, & Ensemble Argo). I could see voters not wanting him to leave a 3 time loser and this is his best chance.

    What categories are you playing it safe in? Which ones are you going for broke in?

    We all learned last year not to rule out Dame Smith.

    Nothing annoys me more awards wise than the slumming nonsense (except maybe “actor playing himself”). There’s nothing wrong with actors going to television for good roles.

    I completely agree with the comedy races. Modern Family keeps winning SAG ensemble, and I won’t predict anything else until it loses. No reason for Louis-Dreyfus to lose either. And since Burrell was the one who finally broke Baldwin’s streak, I see no reason why not to predict him, especially since Parsons hasn’t won here. As for Dinklage and Cumberbatch, I really hope they upset. Cumberbatch could definitely do it without McConaughey in his category. A win for Dinklage would be so deserved, but McConaughey has the heat right now. If McConaughey loses, I think it will go to Spacey. I’m betting Game of Thrones will win ensemble, so Dinklage may yet walk away with something. If Dinklage does beat McConaughey, he’ll join an exclusive club of drama actors who have won the triple crown of TV acting (GG, SAG, and Emmy): Dennis Franz, James Gandolfini, Kiefer Sutherland, and Bryan Cranston. And he’ll be the only supporting actor of the group, as well as the only one to win for a genre series.
