Looks like we need an awards thread.

Could 30 Rock possibly win Best Comedy? Well....okay, no. But I've still got my fingers crossed tonight.

Big Yay for 30 Rock winning Best Comedy!

Big Boo for Alec Baldwin losing Best Actor. At least it wasn't Tony Shaloub.

ETA: Best moment was Jack McBrayer's reaction. He was bouncing all over the place. Hee!

Aaaaaaaaaah! Aaaaaaaah! Emmy people, I still hate you with the blazing fire of a thousand suns and your choices make as much sense as blindfolded dogs pitching wildly at a dartboard but I just let out a shriek so loud because they finally got it right. Maybe there's something about the Best Comedy category. This is like Arrested Development and The Office S2 all over again.

I'm happy to be one of their "dozens and dozens" of viewers today. Rock on, Tina & co.

Word to Hello Kitty: "The Office" holds a special place in my heart, and deservedly won it last year, but "30 Rock" was the best comedy series of this season, and good on the (mostly horrible) Emmys for getting their crown jewel category right two years running.

That wasn't him in the white dress, was it? (I'm guessing it was Jane, also bouncing.)

For once, I called it totally wrong, and for once, I am damn GLAD I called it wrong! We were SCREAMING here because we were so excited! (Not a smart move with a sleeping toddler!).

I also love that the clip they played about gay dudes adopting and wanting everyone to drive a hybrid and loving America is my email sig. I recognize greatness. And damn you, 30 Rock, you are GREAT. Let's all go have a Bacon, Beef'n'Cheddar tomorrow to celebrate!

Alec Baldwin was robbed of his Emmy, and thus I held out no hope for 30 Rock as Best Comedy. That made the win so extra wonderful. I screamed a series of "Yes!, Yes!, Yes! ...." and pulled a muscle in my neck. It was worth it.

Happy to be one of the dozens. Congrats Tina and 30 Rock!

ETA: The "What am I, a farmer?" line used in the Best Writing award got a genuinely loud laugh from the audiance (as opposed to the fake, prefunctory laug).

I have nothing of substance to add but that I'm stoked for the emmy win! Also, I concur with EW's blog


11:02 p.m. Dear God, Remember when Arrested Development won the Best Comedy Series Emmy, and then nobody watched it anyway, and then it got canceled? Well, on that note, I'd like you to please smite anyone who refuses to watch 30 Rock in the wake of its Emmy win tonight. I know it's a little harsh, but they'll just be getting what's coming to them. Love, Slezak

My roommates are now deaf from my celebratory shriek as 30 Rock won. I was hoping for it and I'm so glad for this bright spot in a pretty crappy Emmy telecast. Not all bad... I had a lot of second choices win... but this moment was definitely the highlight for me.

I am first and foremost an Office fan, but I am absolutely happy and willing to concede that Season 1 of 30 Rock was better than Season 3 of The Office - TO had its brilliance, but was more uneven for me this year. 30 Rock definitely deserved the Emmy.

I actually woke up my mom in the next room, because I yelled "Yesssssssss!" so loud! But I don't care! I was not expecting them to win after they lost in everycategory today!

I'm so happy, it's ridiculous!

"Thank you to our dozens and dozens of viewers!"

Tina, marry me please!

I had visions of Arrested Development, too, when 30 Rock won (especially when Tina mentioned her "dozens and dozens of viewers", and I flashed to, "There are dozens of us!" Hee!)

But I think that unlike TPTB at Fox, the NBC honchos have shown a lot more willingness to give smart and funny but low-rated shows not only a chance, but also the marketing and promotion that AD never got. Even with the reshuffling at the top at NBC, I have a feeling that 30 Rock may get the chance it deserves.

I agree about NBC. They're pretty good about giving their shows a chance to find an audience if they feel like it's worth it. They aren't perfect but out of the major networks they seem to have a fondness for quality shows.

Yessss! I can't remember the last time I actually cheered during an award show. This is such a well-deserved win. Still chuckle over Tina Fey's line in reaction to all the nominations: "this is an outrage". I hope they're all walking on clouds for weeks ...
