“30 Rock”
“Hot In Cleveland”*
“The Office”

*Kudos to the Guild for acknowledging “Cleveland.” I don’t think it’s the best traditional comedy, but it’s nice to see a traditional comedy on the list. I’m actually rooting for it.

Male Actor in a Comedy Series:
Ed O’Neill, “Modern Family”

*Kudos to the Guild for acknowledging the outstanding year Betty White had. Since this is actors voting for actors, is there any way she can lose this? I mean, would you vote against her?

The SAG Awards will air January 30th on both TNT and TBS.
