2008 Emmy Nominations Announced and 30 Rock Rocks

Nominees for this year’s primetime Emmy Awards were announced this morning — and Tina Fey’s hit NBC comedy 30 Rock is the clear favourite with nods in multiple categories including best Comedy Series. 

The 2008 Primetime Emmy Awards will be broadcast on September 21, 2008 in Los Angeles. Here is the complete list of nominees.

This year’s Emmy nominations were announced this morning by Kristin Chenoweth and Neil Patrick Harris. They were so adorable together that we certainly hope some Broadway producer is already planning a musical starring the two of them.
