Rochelle Slovin, the Museum's director, said in a previous statement, "The Museum of the Moving Image is proud to be honoring one of our great friends and supporters, as well as a terrific actor, activist and consummate New Yorker. His work in film, television and theatre is outstanding — he just received his fifth SAG Award the other night. He is a diverse and entertaining man, and it is fitting that Alec Baldwin becomes our 26th Honoree."
