Alec Baldwin May Skip Emmy Awards for Tony Bennett Tribute

Share

(Exclusive) Alec Baldwin may be skipping the Emmy Awards again this year. Last year he was a no show, and didn’t win anyway–Jim Parsons from “The Big Bang Theory” took home a statue. Now sources tell me that Alec will likely choose to be at the big gala for Tony Bennett on September 18th at the Metropolitan Opera House instead of attending the Emmy show in Los Angeles.

I can’t blame him–the timing is terrible. And the Bennett night is a once in a lifetime event. Bennett is releasing his “Duets II” album, and many of his collaborators from Aretha Franklin to Lady Gaga to Michael Buble are rumored to be joining the show and the big dinner that accompanies the event. Baldwin won back to back Emmy Awards in 2008 and 2009. But this may be his last season on “30 Rock” anyway if his announcements prove true.

As it is, the Emmys should be giving Steve Carell his Best Actor award this year after seven seasons of great performances on “The Office.”
