Then: Robert Blake, star on cop show "Beretta," scooped the first-ever PCA for Favorite Performer in a New TV Program in 1976. The 42-year-old actor went onstage to pick up his trophy, carrying an unlit cigarette.
Now: These days, Robert is more likely to be found in court than on TV. In 2004, he was tried and acquitted for the 2001 murder of his wife, Bonnie Lee Bakely. However, later that year, he was found liable for her death in civil court and fined $30 million, an amount that was later cut in half. The bankrupt star, now 78, was hit with a tax lien for $1 million in 2010.
