Condoleezza Rice

Tina Fey recently announced that Condoleezza Rice, former Secretary of State, will make a guest starring appearance on 30 Rock. She’ll be playing herself (sort of), as Jack’s ex-girlfriend.

Jack Donaghy, played by Alec Baldwin, stated in season one that he was dating “a high-ranking African-American member of the Bush Administration,” though ultimately the relationship didn’t work out.

No 30 Rock Baby for Jane Krakowski

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, 30 Rock,

Will Forte and Jane Krakowski on 30 Rock

Although one could imagine 30 Rock making Jenna Maroney and her drag queen impersonator/boyfriend (Will Forte) parents, a baby will not be in their future anytime soon.

When news of Jane Krakowski's real-life pregancy was revealed, fans of the NBC series immediately wondered what that would mean for her TV character. Now, we know the answer.

“At this time, we plan to shoot around Jane’s pregnancy, because no child should have Jenna Maroney for a mother," exec producer Robert Carlock and Tina Fey told EW in a statement.

Ouch.

2011 Golden Globe Nominations (TV)

Boardwalk Empire

The Golden Globe contenders for the 2010-11 season were officially announced Tuesday morning in Beverly Hills by Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Blair Underwood.

Last year's Best Comedy Series winner, Glee, lead all television programs with a total of five nominations. Five series -- 30 Rock, Boardwalk Empire, Dexter, The Good Wife and Mad Men -- tied for second place with three nods each.

Here are some of the notable omissions/inclusions from this year's list of nominees:

  • The Good Wife was the only non-cable series to be recognized for Best Drama.
  • The Walking Dead replaced that other horror series (True Blood), giving AMC two nominations in the Drama category.
  • The limitations of the Best Supporting Actor category meant only two acting noms for the cast of Modern Family.
  • Jennifer Love Hewitt has found herself pitted against Claire Danes ... and Dame Judi Dench.

The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards -- hosted again by Ricky Gervais -- will air Jan. 16 on NBC.

(You can find the full list of nominees after the jump. Click here for the film nominations.)

PBS Cuts Sarah Palin Jokes from Tina Fey Speech

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Award Shows, Specials, PBS, Gossip, Video,

Tina Fey was awarded the Mark Twain Prize on PBS last Sunday, but viewers didn’t get to hear all of her speech. Fey made the following comments about conservatism and Sarah Palin:

"And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women -- except, of course, those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape kit 'n' stuff. But for everybody else, it's a win-win. …Unless you're a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years -- whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. …Unless you believe in evolution. You know what? Actually, I take it back. The whole thing's a disaster."
