Pin it

Viacom's recently announced Comedy Awards — an attempt to provide the comedy world with its own answer to the Oscars, Grammys, Emmys, etc — has just released its first set of nominees, and most of them are on 30 Rock. Among "Comedy Actress" nominees, 30 Rock's Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski take two of the five spots, with Eastbound and Down's Danny McBride sneaking onto the "Comedy Actor" list next to 30 Rock's Alec Baldwin and Tracy Morgan. For "Best Comedy Series," the nominees include Eastbound And Down, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Modern Family, The Office, and… 30 Rock. Does this mean Tracy Jordan will have to try for a CEGOT? (Hmm, this comedy business is hard.) Nominees were chosen by a panel of famous people including Jon Stewart, Conan O'Brien, Joan Rivers, Stephen Colbert, et al (see a full list here); the winners, as chosen by a larger group of 1,000 industry types, will be revealed on an April 10 telecast.
