'30 Rock'

September 17, 2013

With a total of 90 nominations for six seasons, 30 Rock also holds the all-time record for most nominations for a comedy series in a single year, with the 22 nods the show received in 2009.

However, 2009 has served as a landmark year for the wrong reasons for the series. Although 30 Rock -- starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin -- has gathered 41 nominations since then, the show has yet to take home an Emmy since 2009.

The emergence of Modern Family as an Emmy comedy powerhouse has overtaken 30 Rock as Outstanding Comedy Series, which it won from 2007 to 2009.

Nevertheless, the fact that it is the final season for 30 Rock, may persuade the Academy to bestow the show with a handful of awards.
