SAG Awards: Who should win Best TV Ensemble?

Posted on

Tomorrow night’s Screen Actors Guild awards show (8 p.m. ET on TNT and TBS) has those “ensemble” categories so that EVERYONE can get a statue. I feel like Mad Men can’t lose in the TV drama category — it’s up against Dexter, The Closer, The Good Wife, and True Blood — unless people write-in their votes for Lost. For the comedy category, I’d like to see Modern Family win best ensemble over 30 Rock, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Glee, and The Office. A best ensemble win for MF would also be a good nod to the writers who facilitate rapid-fire chemistry among actors we knew we loved (Ed O’Neill, Julie Bowen) and those whose capacity to portray familial dysfunction we couldn’t even fathom (Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson). That sentence seems so unfair. I want to keep naming them so I’ll be in the Ensemble Award Spirit, but I’ll stop. No I won’t. Eric Stonestreet. Ty Burrell. Oh, and you know Baby Lily was emoting hardcore when she got locked in the car. Give these people who left their baby in the car an award!

Which ensembles are you rooting for tomorrow night? (TV nominess here; film nominees here.) Check back this weekend for EW’s full coverage of the SAG Awards.
