Currently at Gold Derby, seven of our 10 Experts from major media outlets predict that Season 2 of “The Bear” will sweep the comedy races at the 2024 Golden Globes. These savvy prognosticators have it cooking up wins for Best Comedy Series, Jeremy Allen White as Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto for Best Comedy Actor and Ayo Edebiri as Sydney Adamu for Best Comedy Actress. If they’re right, that would put “The Bear” on the same exotic menu as “30 Rock” (with leads Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin) and “Roseanne” (with leads Roseanne Barr and John Goodman), both of which claimed the comedy trifecta in 2009 and 1993, respectively.

The seven Experts predicting the FX show to sweep the top three comedy races are: Christopher Rosen (Gold Derby), Eric Deggans (NPR), Joyce Eng (Gold Derby), Nikki Novak (Fandango), Peter Travers (ABC), Ray Richmond (Gold Derby) and Wilson Morales (BlackFilmandTV). Season 2 continued the story of Carmy and his crew redesigning his late brother’s beef restaurant into a high-end locale called “The Bear.”

As for the other pundits, both Jazz Tangcay (Variety) and Susan Wloszczyna (Gold Derby) are going with “The Bear” for series and White for actor, but pick Quinta Brunson (“Abbott Elementary”) over Edebiri for actress. Finally, Susan King (Gold Derby) also predicts Brunson for actress, with “Ted Lasso” being her choice for series and Jason Sudeikis (“Ted Lasso”) for actor.

“The Bear” competes against “Jury Duty,” “Only Murders in the Building,” “Abbott Elementary,” “Ted Lasso” and “Barry” in the comedy series race. White’s co-nominees are Sudeikis, Bill Hader (“Barry”), Martin Short (“Only Murders in the Building”), Steve Martin (“Only Murders in the Building”) and Jason Segel (“Shrinking”). And Edebiri faces off against Brunson, Natasha Lyonne (“Poker Face”), Selena Gomez (“Only Murders in the Building”), Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) and Elle Fanning (“The Great”).

Also nominated this year from “The Bear” are Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Richard “Richie” Jerimovich for Best TV Supporting Actor and Abby Elliott as Natalie “Sugar” Berzatto for Best TV Supporting Actress. None of our Golden Globe Experts are currently predicting either of them to prevail in the catch-all categories that combine comedies, dramas, limited series and TV movies. Fun fact: the last time a comedy series took both of the supporting races was “Glee” in 2011 for stand-outs Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch.

At last year’s Golden Globes, Season 1 of “The Bear” lost Best Comedy Series to “Abbott Elementary,” but it did claim the Best Comedy Actor award for White. Edebiri was snubbed for that first season, but that was back when she was competing as a supporting actress. FX promoted her to a lead actress for Season 2, and she was promptly rewarded with a nomination.
