SAG Awards TV predictions: ‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Modern Family,’ Alec Baldwin …

The Screen Actors Guild Awards tend to echo the Emmys when it comes to their TV kudos with two surprising caveats — the guild does not differentiate between lead and supporting performances on the small screen, though they do on the big one. And Alec Baldwin has won the Comedy Actor prize SEVEN years running for his work on “30 Rock” and we don’t expect that streak to end this year for the final five episodes. 

Below, our predictions for Wednesday’s nominees in the eight TV races. Our forecasted champs are in gold while potential spoilers for nominations are in italics.

  1. I am so sick of Baldwin in every fucking way, they are way too gaga over him and I don’t get it. He played a misogynist asshole for 7 years and is also one in real life he needs to anger management
