Members of the Screen Actors Guild love Tina Fey. They love the show 30 Rock. Even though the soon-to-be-finished NBC comedy rarely wins honors at any of the other major award shows, the high-profile cast has apparently managed to schmooze their fellow members of the acting community into enough of a daze to continue to pick them as the winners.

During the festivities last night, 30 Rock stars Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey both won the top honors for their respective categories. For Baldwin, it was his seventh time in a row winning the award for best actor in a comedy series. He previously won one other SAG Award.

For Fey, it was her fourth award in a row and fifth win overall for her career.

The cast of Modern Family also did well, having won the award for best comedy ensemble, and Downtown Abbey took home the trophy as the coveted best drama ensemble winner.

The rest of the victories were scattered, with Bryan Cranston winning the best drama actor title for his performance in Breaking Bad, Claire Danes winning the equivalent female award for Homeland, and Kevin Costner and Julianne Moore winning their respective awards for best performance in a miniseries or TV movie.

For the most part, this was a very different outcome than the Golden Globe Awards held earlier this month, where 30 Rock and Modern Family didn't win any awards.

As for the film categories, Lincoln was the only movie to win two awards (best lead actor, Daniel Day-Lewis; and best supporting actor, Tommy Lee Jones). Argo won the award for best ensemble, Silver Linings Playbook's Jennifer Lawrence took home the award for best lead actress, and Anne Hathaway won in her category of best supporting actress, for Les Miserables.
