Before Modern Family came and took over the comedy awards circuit, NBC's 30 Rock was unbeatable at every major television accolades event, from the Primetime Emmys to the Golden Globes. And for good reason—overseen by the brainy, sexy, and undeniably funny Tina Fey, this satirical look at a fictional variety show, not unlike Fey's old Saturday Night Live stomping grounds, fires hilarious quotables at viewers with tireless ferocity. Many come from Alec Baldwin, whose work as the wonderfully egotistic, Lorne Michaels-like executive has evolved into one of this generation's top sitcom characters. —MB
