Good news, Alec Baldwin: Winning Emmys makes you live longer
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.
