This Just In, “30 Rock” Nominated For Supreme Court Justice, Miss America, & Finalist On “American Idol”

Once again, the Emmy voters have decided to shower the average, moderately funny “30 Rock” with nominations. So much so this time, that it now has more nominations in one year than any other show in history. Think about that one folks…more than any show ever. That means more than “Cheers”, “The Cosby Show”, “Seinfeld”, “I Love Lucy”, “The Sopranos”…every show ever. Even if you like “30 Rock” (which I definitely do not), you have to see the flaw in that new statistic…don’t you?

Here are my initial thoughts on the nominees…

  • No problems with the Best Drama or Best Comedy nominees. It’s easy to be okay with the choices since they nominate every show on TV for these awards…I mean, isn’t seven a few too many? Of course, I’m pulling for “Lost” and…
  • “Flight of the Conchords”! The voters showed a lot of love for what has become the funniest show on television. Jemaine Clement was nominated for Best Actor, Comedy…but I am sad for Bret McKenzie, who is equally as brilliant on the show. Get rid of Chuck Sheen or the overrated Tony Shalhoub to make room for Bret and you have yourself a great category there.
  • The Emmy voters again give the majority of the “Lost” cast the shaft. Hopefully, Michael Emerson will finally get his Supporting Actor, Drama trophy this year…but how screwed over are Josh Holloway and Elizabeth Mitchell this time around?
  • Stop nominating “Saturday Night Live” for things. It wasn’t even remotely close to funny this past year and it is only good if you DVR it so you can zip through the crappy skits.
  • So “Family Guy” is nominated for Best Comedy but not Best Animated Series? That’s a bit insane to me.
  • “30 Rock” has too much stunt casting. It’s a bit much that “Extra, #6” was nominated for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series isn’t it?
  • Craig Ferguson…your show was totally hosed, you hilarious Scottish son of a bitch you.

    Three cheers for Jemaine Clement! I can’t get enough of this mutton-chopped comedian, who is the best thing about “Flight of the Conchords” besides Rhys Darby (I like you, Bret, but I LOVE Jemaine). Jemaine has a way with understatement that just kills me every time. I’ll be rooting for him!
