2. “Only Murders in the Building” — 4/1 odds

Together, they try to solve a brand new murder within the walls of their ritzy apartment complex. The rest of the nominated ensemble members are Michael Cyril Creighton, Cara Delevingne, Jayne Houdyshell and Adina Verson.
Experts predicting: None

3. “The Bear” — 4/1 odds
One of the year’s most critically acclaimed comedies is hoping SAG Awards voters say “Yes, Chef!” on its first at-bat. Solo acting nominee Jeremy Allen White stars on the FX on Hulu show as Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto, a young chef who returns home to Chicago to work at his family’s Italian sandwich shop following the death of his brother. The other actors contending for the ensemble bid are Lionel Boyce, Liza Colón-Zayas, Ayo Edebiri, Abby Elliott, Edwin Lee Gibson, Corey Hendrix, Matty Matheson and Ebon Moss-Bachrach.

Reigning SAG Award champ Jean Smart stars as an aging Las Vegas comedian, Deborah Vance, who struggles with having a young new writer by her side, Ava Daniels, played by Hannah Einbinder. The series lost last year’s ensemble prize to “Ted Lasso,” but can it prevail this year? The relatively small cast for the HBO Max laffer is rounded out by Carl Clemons-Hopkins, Paul W. Downs, Mark Indelicato and Megan Stalter.
Experts predicting: None

5. “Barry” — 9/2 odds
HBO’s hitman-turned-actor comedy is now on its third SAG Award nomination for Best Comedy Ensemble, after losing to “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” for both of its first two seasons. “Barry” surprised awards pundits by scoring two individual acting bids this year for Bill Hader (as Barry Berkman) and Anthony Carrigan (as NoHo Hank). The other actors recognized in the ensemble are Sarah Burns, D’Arcy Carden, Turhan Troy Caylak, Sarah Goldberg, Nick Gracer, Jessy Hodges, Michael Irby, Gary Kraus, Stephen Root and Henry Winkler.
