30 Rock Tilts With Emmy, Again main image

For guest actress in a comedy series I have to say Tina Fey, for Saturday Night Live, because the Glee guest turns of Paltrow and others just didn’t do it for me. Glee lost some of its edge this year.  I don’t love Modern Family as much as Emmy voters, but it’s congruent voting at the very least. I really need to catch me some “Downton Abbey”, which I started watching on Netflix. But 30 Rock is the show you wish would release bonus material on pay per view.

Nominations for Emmy up the kazoo on that one. “Californication and CSY New York got sound editing/mixing nods, and what I think of those two shows is about equalled by Emmy voters, apparently. Town joke shows like CSI didn’t get any nominations, bringing the world to its right axis. The serious drama seemed to tilt the way of the cable networks, no surprise there. But 30 Rock is a show with guest actors like Condoleeza Rice and Tim Conway.

When watching Fey on Saturday Night Live as Sarah Palin, I almost wish Palin would get elected and we could exchange her for Fey and sleep at nights. Alec Baldwin wraps a new acting Emmy nod for “Rock” and his season finale episode about how doing TV will end your career as an actor, is one for theall- time capsule of modern media. Elizabeth Banks (30 Rock) also gets a nod for her GOP bunny wife of Baldwin’s character Jack Donaghy, and view the childbirth episode of “Rock” to see her at her best.

About the author tvqueen


I like to watch TV shows from classic eras as well as contemporary drama and comedy. Science Fiction is fun, and shows like the Cape and Fringe keep hope alive that the medium that produced Space 1999 is alive. Comedy such as 30 Rock is usually, good, but not always. I like Survivor but it has so little to do with survivor skills I am disappointed. Appointment viewing is Grey's Anatomy, NCIS LA, The CSI series for New York and Las Vegas and Miami, with a special shout out for the new Hawaii Five O. Gordon Ramsay's Hells Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares are top of the line viewing for the drama comedy Gordon's character and the business lessons they teach.
