Screen Actors Guild voters made it a clean sweep for Claire Danes ("Homeland), Kevin Costner ("Hatfields and McCoys"), and Julianne Moore ("Game Change"), who all won Emmys and Golden Globes this awards cycle. (Read film report here and see complete list of TV and film winners here.)

Alec Baldwin won as Best TV Comedy Actor for the seventh consecutive time for his role as Jack Donaghy on "30 Rock." Along with another trophy he won as part of the ensemble in 2009, he has now tied the overall record held by Julianna Margulies with eight career SAG Awards.

Baldwin's co-star and show creator Tina Fey prevailed for the fourth time as Best TV Comedy Actress, although she had lost the past two years to Betty White ("Hot in Cleveland"). The NBC comedy series airs its final episodes this Thursday and will no longer be eligible at SAG.

For the third straight year, "Modern Family" was victorious as Best TV Comedy Ensemble. It has not won for all seasons, however, losing to "Glee" on its first try in 2010. The show has also won the Emmy Award for Best Comedy Series the past three years.

The dramatic category winners were spread out over three series. After two consecutive wins by "Boardwalk Empire" as Best TV Drama Ensemble, British import "Downton Abbey" staged a somewhat surprise victory.

Danes prevailed on her first try as Best TV Drama Actress for "Homeland" after not being nominated for the show's first season.

On his fourth individual try, Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad") finally broke through to win his first ever SAG Award in any category. He has previously won three Emmy Awards as drug kingpin Walter White in 2008, 2009, and 2010. He also shared in the Film Ensemble award for "Argo." 

Moore was on hand to accept her SAG trophy as Best TV Movie/Miniseries Actress for her role as Governor Sarah Palin. Costner was not in attendance to accept as Best TV Movie/Miniseries Actor for playing Devil Anse Hatfield.
