Alec Baldwin has never lost at the SAG Awards for his performance as Jack Donaghy on “30 Rock.” He has won Best TV Comedy Actor seven years in a row and will most likely contend one last time this coming January. The guild ruled last month that “30 Rock” was eligible despite falling one short of airing the required six episodes in 2013.
While bestowing separate prizes for lead and supporting film performances, SAG combines them into one category on the TV front. That increased competion kept Jim Parsons out of the SAG race till last year, despite two previous Emmy wins (2010, 2011) for his starring role on “The Big Bang Theory.”
While he lost to Baldwin at SAG, Parsons edged him out at the Emmys. That win gave him three trophies to Baldwin’s two (2008, 2009) at those top TV kudos.
Among their Emmy competition, Louis C.K. (“Louie”) and Matt LeBlanc (“Episodes”) are not eligible at SAG. And Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development”) and Don Cheadle (“House of Lies”) are likely to be bumped by some of the supporting fellows from “Modern Family” (Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ed ONeill and Eric Stonestreet) and/or returning TV vets Michael J. Fox (“The Michael J. Fox Show”) and Robin Williams (“The Crazy Ones“).
