Alec Baldwin has yet to lose a SAG Award race for his performance as TV executive Jack Donaghy on NBC's "30 Rock"; he has won Best Comedy Actor six years in a row and our users and editors give him best odds to win his seventh this year, but he's not the only reigning SAG champ who could repeat. All of SAG's TV comedy winners have been the same since 2010.

"Modern Family" has won the Best Comedy Ensemble title for the last two years. The series recently lost its Golden Globe crown to HBO's edgier "Girls," which wasn't nominated by SAG, but the ABC comedy has been hard to beat at industry awards, also winning multiple honors from the Directors Guild, Producers Guild, Writers Guild, and the Emmys, where it is undefeated for Best Comedy Series, winning three in a row. Our predictors currently give it 11 to 8 odds to three-peat at SAG as well.

Betty White has won both of her two bids for Best Comedy Actress for "Hot in Cleveland." The role also earned her a 2011 Emmy bid, which she lost to "Modern Family's" Julie Bowen, but the veteran actress, who turned 91 this month, is beloved by her peers; in addition to her two Comedy Actress wins, she received SAG's Life Achievement Award in 2009.

However, our racetrack odds predict a loss this year for White. She trails Amy Poehler, who is nominated for the first time for playing public servant Leslie Knope on NBC's "Parks and Recreation." It would be the actress's first major honor for the series. She has been nominated twice by the Golden Globes and the Television Critics Association and three times for acting by the Emmys, without a win. She has several other nominations at various awards for writing and producing, but has yet to take her turn in the winner's circle.

To win this time around she'll have to overtake Hollywood's busiest nonagenarian. Can she pull it off, or will SAG's comedy champs repeat yet again?
