Emmy Nomination Preview 2013 - Outstanding Comedy Series
Can anything dethrone 'Modern Family'?
"30 Rock," NBC
Nomination Status: Could a departing classic be the show to dethrone "Modern Family"?
In Its Favor: "30 Rock" has been nominated in all six years of eligibility and with three wins, it ranks among the classics. And this past season saw "30 Rock" end its run nearly as good as it ever was. Once you accept that there's no chance that "30 Rock" won't be nominated, it then it becomes a very real possibility that it could win, especially since I really don't think anybody will claim this was "Modern Family" at its very best. I love many other shows that are likely to be both nominated and snubbed, but I would have no complaints if Emmy voters decide "30 Rock," Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin deserve a last salute.
Working Against It: Like I said: For a nomination? Nothing. I'd be astounded if "30 Rock" doesn't get its seventh nod in this category.
