SAG Awards predictions secret: Size matters for comedies like ‘Orange is the New Black,’ ‘Glee,’ ‘Desperate Housewives’ …
When it comes to rewarding the best comedic cast on television, the SAG Awards often simply go with the biggest cast. Recent winners like “Orange is the New Black” (2014-2016), “Glee” (2009), “Desperate Housewives” (2004-2005) and “Ally McBeal” (1998) all prevailed thanks in part to having the most cast members on the voting ballot. Interestingly enough, all four of these were also hour-long dramedies, which suggests SAG voters are more apt to give the prize to large casts when they’re also in large productions.

What does this statistic mean in terms of predicting the 2018 SAG Awards? “Orange is the New Black” once again boasts the biggest comedy cast with a record-setting 45 men and women nominated for the Netflix prison series. That’s up from 37 cast members in 2016, 34 in 2015, and 40 in 2014. Of this year’s other nominated ensembles, Netflix’s “Glow” consists of 18 cast members, followed by HBO’s “Veep” at 15, ABC

18 Actors Who Were Almost Marvel's Star-Lord

18 Actors Who Were Almost Marvel's Star-Lord
Guardians of the Galaxy was considered a risky proposition for Marvel Studios, even after the runaway success of their cinematic universe building films like Iron Man and The Avengers. These characters hang around in outer space! There are aliens on the team! There's a talking raccoon! So it was nothing short of incredible when Guardians of the Galaxy earned nearly $800 million and a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes. A big part of James Gunn's action-comedy masterpiece depends upon the charisma of Chris Pratt, who leads the team as Peter Quill, the film's relatable half-earthling who rocks badass tunes in his headphones while kicking ass as Star-Lord. But it almost didn't happen that way. As there were plenty of other big names vying for the coveted role.

It may seem crazy to think about now, but at the time, Pratt was mostly known as lovable doofus and Mouse Rat frontman Andy Dwyer on NBC's Parks and Recreation.

‘Graves’ Season 2 Teaser: Nick Nolte Returns with Good Advice and More Presidential Hijinks — Watch
We really can’t have enough political comedies to infuse some laughter into the current cultural climate, and with “Veep” done for the season (and soon gone for good) the necessity for a replacement is dire. Fortunately, Epix’s original comedy “Graves” is coming back for Season 2 next month, and it’s ready to satisfy our satiric withdrawals.

Golden Globe nominee Nick Nolte returns as former president Richard Graves, who’s presidential legacy is put to question when he looks back at how his decisions might have negatively affected the country 25 years after the end of his administration. His performance during the first season garnered Nolte a nod from the HFPA for Best Leading Actor in a TV Series (Musical or Comedy).

Exclusive: 'Glow' Breakout Britney Young Talks Cast’s Sisterhood and ‘Intimate’ Stunts
Glow may stand for Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, but for Britney Young, the Netflix series represents something different.

Born in Tokyo and raised in Alaska, the actress walked an untraditional path to Hollywood success (assuming there's such a thing as a traditional one). Though at the time she lived there there was only one English-speaking television program airing in Japan, Young says she was a natural-born performer, forcing her parents to put her in plays in Tokyo (her mom, a preschool teacher, put on many of her shows as a toddler), and gravitating toward her father's ‘80s movie collection for "research."

The 20 Best TV Episodes of 2017 (So Far)
