Further Proof as to Why You Should be Watching 30 Rock

The Emmy nominations are in. 30 Rock has 18 of them (If you count the online content one). That's the most nominations that ANY comedy has EVER received. Granted, it won't win all 18 of them because they're up against themselves in a few categories. Take a look:

Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series

Rip Torn as Don Geiss

Will Arnett as Devin Banks

Steve Buscemi as Len

Tim Conway as Bucky Bright

Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series

Carrie Fisher as Rosemary Howard

Edie Falco as Celeste 'C.C.' Cunningham

Elaine Stritch as Colleen Donaghy

Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series

30 RockRosemary's BabyNBC
Jack Burditt, Written By

30 RockCooterNBC
Tina Fey, Written By

The other guest actor is Shelley Berman as Nat David (Curb Your Enthusiasm).

The other guest actresses are Polly Bergen as Stella Wingfield (Desperate Housewives), Kathryn Joosten as Karen McCluskey (Desperate Housewives), and Sarah Silverman as Marci Maven (Monk). If a 30 Rocker doesn't win, Sarah Silverman should.

The other writing competition is Flight of the Conchords, The Office, and Pushing Daisies.

So... good luck to 30 Rock and Tina Fey. I'll actually have something to cheer for in the comedy categories. I'd like for Rip Torn and Edie Falco to win. Or Will Arnett... he was fabulous, too. And Elaine Stritch is hilarious. I just love this show, okay? But the episode entitled "Cooter" was better than "Rosemary's Baby" (surprise, Fey wrote it), so I hope that's the one that wins.

Kinda still on topic news - Kathy Griffin will be back at the Emmys with her two nominations - one for her Bravo special, Straight to Hell, and another for her reality show, My Life on the D-List. She probably won't win for Straight to Hell because that would deny George Carlin a posthumous Emmy, which he probably would've made fun of during his acceptance speech - much like she did last year.

Maybe Kathy can accept it in his honor. That's okay though, she's got her Emmy. She's focusing on a Grammy next.
