Emmys Emmy Awards Alec Baldwin 30 Rock Bill Maher TV news

Alec Baldwin is tipped to take home his third Best Comedy Actor Emmy this year for the final season of "30 Rock." 

While that trophy will, no doubt, look good on his already-crowded mantle, the bigger reward for the 54-year-old comes in the form of a recent study that concluded Emmy champs live longer. And with Baldwin's bride expecting their first child, this news couldn't come at a better time. 

Researchers at Columbia University determined that Emmy winners lived almost three years longer than nominees. At age 57, Bill Maher, who has lost a record 28 Emmy bids, may want to reconsider his long-term career plans.

Baldwin, who has expressed political ambitions in the past, should take note that the study also found that American presidents see their lifespan reduced by two years due to the demands of the job.
