In the TV series categories, SAG members largely stuck to their choices from last year, repeating 5 of the 6 series winners from 2011. Alec Baldwin and Betty White appear primed to “own” the lead comedy actor and actress titles for as long as they’re on TV, which, given the fact that Baldwin is signed for another season of 30 Rock and that White shows no signs of slowing down at 90, could be awhile.
