2023 SAG Awards TV Predictions: Best Limited Series Actor
Predicted Winners (in odds order)
1. Evan Peters (“Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story”) — 16/5 odds
Ryan Murphy‘s latest collaboration with Peters broke ratings records for Netflix when it debuted in September. The actor, who is coming off a Golden Globe victory, is at his career-best as the titular serial killer, particularly when he’s sharing scenes with fellow nominee Niecy Nash-Betts (as his suspicious neighbor) as well as Richard Jenkins (as his caring father). This marks Peters’ second career SAG Award bid after “Mare of Easttown.”
Experts predicting: Ben Travers (Indiewire), Christopher Rosen (Gold Derby), Clayton Davis (Variety), Debbie Day (Rotten Tomatoes), Eric Deggans (NPR), Jazz Tangcay (Variety), Joyce Eng (Gold Derby), Keith Simanton (IMDb), Nikki Novak (Fandango), Peter Travers (ABC), Susan Wloszczyna (Gold Derby), Thelma Adams (Gold Derby), Tim Gray (Variety)
2. Paul Walter Hauser (“Black Bird”) — 39/10 odds
After critically acclaimed roles in feature films like “Richard Jewell” and “I, Tonya,” Hauser is finally a solo SAG Award nominee thanks to “Black Bird.” (He previously contended as part of the “Da 5 Bloods” ensemble cast). Hauser undergoes a complete transformation as he takes on the real-life role of convict Lawrence “Larry” Hall, a serial killer and rapist, who is caught off guard by a friendly new inmate.
Experts predicting: Susan King (Gold Derby)
3. Taron Egerton (“Black Bird”) — 9/2 odds
Former SAG Award nominee Egerton (“Rocketman”) portrays James Keene, a rising football star who goes to prison for drugs and illegal weapons, and then becomes involved in a sting operation in which he has to obtain a confession from Hauser’s character. This Apple TV Plus entry is based on Keene’s 2010 autobiographical novel “In with the Devil: a Fallen Hero, a Serial Killer, and a Dangerous Bargain for Redemption.”
Experts predicting: None
4. Steve Carell (“The Patient”) — 9/2 odds
Carell is a three-time SAG Award winner for “The Office” cast (2007 and ’08) and the “Little Miss Sunshine” ensemble (2007). However, he’s never won a solo trophy … until now? In the FX on Hulu miniseries he plays Alan Strauss, a therapist who’s kidnapped by a serial killer, Sam Fortner (Domhnall Gleeson), who wants to use Alan’s psychiatry abilities to stop murdering helpless victims.
Experts predicting: None
5. Sam Elliott (“1883”) — 9/2 odds
This “Yellowstone” prequel stars Elliott as Shea Brennan, a Civil War veteran who’s now a member of the Pinkerton Agency. He serves as the leader of a wagon train that embarks from Tennessee and travels through Texas and Montana on its way to Oregon. The actor has yet to win a SAG Award, though he did recently reap his first two career bids (supporting actor and ensemble) for “A Star Is Born” (2018).
Experts predicting: None
