2013 Emmy Comedy Nominees: 30 Rock and Modern Family Take the Lead!

30 ROCK, Tina Fey Ali Goldstein/NBC

The days of 30 Rock may be over, but the show is undoubtedly leaving a lasting legacy on the comedy world. 

The hit NBC series swept this year's Emmy nominations, raking in a total of 13 nods and nabbing a nomination in all of the major comedy categories.

While neither Tina Fey nor Alec Baldwin took home the Outstanding Lead Actor/Actress honors last year, the talented twosome have another change this time around. The funnygal is up against last year's winner, Veep's Julia Louis-Dreyfus while her costar may finally have a shot a reclaiming his Emmy fame after winning in 2008 and 2009 but losing out to Two and a Half Men's Jon Cryer last year.

MODERN FAMILY ABC/Peter "Hopper" Stone

Fan favorite and last year's Outstanding Comedy series winner Modern Family also garnered a slew of nominations, as Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ed O'Neill and Ty Burrell all received noms in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category.

Last year's winner, Eric Stonestreet, didn't make the cut (perhaps because they wanted to give others some love?), however his costar (and last year's Outstanding Supporting Actress winner) Julie Bowen received her fourth nomination.

Sofía Vergara, who is always a fashion favorite on the Emmy's red carpet, also received her fourth Emmy nom for her role on the ABC comedy. The Colombian beauty's been nominated for her performance every year since 2010, but she's never taken home the accolade (perhaps this will be her year?!).

Lena Dunham, Girls HBO

Lena Dunham's Girls also continued its Emmy nomination streak as the show received its second Outstanding Comedy series nom. Lena Dunham and Adam Driver also nabbed noms in the Outstanding Actor/Actress category—Duhnam's second and Driver's first for the hit HBO show (the 27-year-old creator took home the Golden Globe for Outstanding Actress last year).

Other notable nominees include The Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik, who received her second nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category as well as Louis's Louis C.K., who also received his second nom for Outstanding Actor.

Jim Parsons—who won for Outstanding Lead Actor in 2010 and 2011—also garnered another nom, as did Jason Bateman, who was last nominated for his role in Arrested Development in 2005.

Last, but certainly not least, Amy Poehler received her fourth Emmy nomination for her role on Parks and Rec, despite the series being seriously snubbed (again) for Outstanding Comedy series.
