James Woods, actorIt's been a long road for the deserving It's a Paycheck Award nominees; the honor of just being nominated, balanced with the drive to win it all. The backstabbing, the name-calling, the public humiliation. And that's just what the team here at TV Squad went through to choose the winner.

I jest, but it was a tight race between the two nominees you readers thought should win. So who came out on top -- Alec Baldwin, who successfully reinvented himself as a comedic TV actor, or James Woods, the essentially big screen actor who uncharacteristically starred in his own TV series? The envelope please ...

And the winner is ... James Woods!

The It's a Paycheck Award nominees

TV Squad Awards logoHere it is, the moment you've all been waiting for ... drumroll, please ... the announcement of The It's a Paycheck Award nominees. The esteemed actors who have been carefully chosen as nominees for this award have shown themselves to be most worthy movie actors slumming it on TV.

Now people, some of the comments on the intro post intimated that you all took this award slightly more seriously than it was intended. Being on TV certainly isn't really slumming it in this era; however, the actors that made the cut showed an interesting, shall we say, transition from movies to TV. Here they are in alphabetical order:

1. Alec Baldwin (30 Rock)
Wait a minute, how could Alec Baldwin get nominated for this award? He's been on TV for years! This is true, but no one does it better than Baldwin. Like most actors seem to, he started in TV, doing soap operas. He became known for serious roles on the big screen, like in Hunt for Red October, Malice, and Glengarry Glen Ross. When the box office career just wasn't as lucrative as it had been, Baldwin reinvented himself as a comedic actor. Since he had been making fun of himself on Saturday Night Live for years, it sure wasn't a stretch. 30 Rock marks a defining comedic role for Baldwin.
