A slimmed down Baldwin attended Sunday (Jan. 29) night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards and picked up an Outstanding Male Actor in a TV Comedy Series statue for his role as Jack Donaghy on the NBC comedy “30 Rock.”

Earlier on the red carpet he revealed to “Entertainment Tonight’s” Nancy O’Dell that he was diagnosed as being pre-diabetic last May and has subsequently changed his diet. In addition to staving off the dreaded Type 2 diabetes, he’s lost 30 pounds.

Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
