Someone get Alec Baldwin a pillow!
The “30 Rock” star scored himself yet another Emmy nomination for lead actor in a comedy with his turn as slick network executive Jack Donaghy. So after a steady stream of nominations (and the occasional win) for his portrayal, how does the 54-year-old celebrate such recognition?
“I sob into my pillow and say, ‘But do they really mean it?' ” Baldwin joked to The Times. "It’s really a muffled sob. And then I go to the mirror and once more ask, ‘but do they really mean it?' ”
Channeling Jack’s enduring thoughtfulness, for a brief moment, Baldwin got serious: "I’m grateful to be nominated,” he said. “You know how people always say it’s an honor just to be nominated — I don’t know about that. I guess it's true. Maybe. But what I know for sure is it is an honor to be nominated every year the show has been on. It’s not something I take lightly.”
