, SAG Awards (TV) 2012 - TV Comedy Actor
A few things are certain every awards season: Meryl Streep will be nominated at the Golden Globes, Maggie Smith will stay at home, and Alec Baldwin will win yet another SAG award.
Baldwin's SAG reign as TV Comedy Actor for "30 Rock" is one for the record books. So far, he's undefeated in his role as Jack Donaghy on the long-running NBC comedy, earning six trophies over the past six years. That doesn't even count the extra ensemble trophy he won in 2009 as part of the "30 Rock" cast.
His individual tally becomes even more impressive when it's taken into consideration that SAG combines the lead and supporting races, making Baldwin the true king of TV comedy. For comparison's sake, over on the TV Drama side, Julianna Margulies ("ER," "The Good Wife") is the reigning SAG champ with only four individual trophies.
Since Baldwin's winning streak began in 2007, he's prevented such popular comic actors as Jeremy Piven ("Entourage"), Steve Carell ("The Office"), Jon Cryer ("Two and a Half Men"), Ty Burrell ("Modern Family") and Eric Stonestreet ("Modern Family") from claiming a SAG award of their own.
This marks the final chance for Baldwin to prevail for his "30 Rock" role since the show will air its series finale this month. According to Gold Derby's Experts, Editors and Users, Baldwin has 14/5 odds to win his seventh award, putting him in second place behind Louis C.K. ("Louie") with 12/5 odds.
Will Baldwin break his own record, or will somebody new finally be rewarded? Find out Jan. 27, when the 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards will air live on TNT and TBS.
