A moment of ’30 Rock’ nostalgia: ‘Rural Juror’ gets Emmy nod

You didn’t think I was going to let this pass without comment, did you? The late, lamented “30 Rock” got 13 Emmy nominations yesterday — and one of them was for Original Music and Lyrics, for “The Rural Juror.” This was, of course, the unpronounceable title of a Jenna Maroney film, and later became a song for Jenna, on which note the series ended. Here is a lovely interview with Jeff Richmond, nominated with co-writers Tina Fey (show creator, and his wife) and Tracey Wigfield, in which he promises they will accept the award in three-part harmony, should they win. (He also notes that he looks forward to drinking mimosas poolside with Marc Shaiman, to which I add, wouldn’t we all?) “The Rural Juror” is up against two songs from “Smash,” one from “Nashville,” one from “The Neighbors,” and one from last year’s Tony Awards. Could they possibly compare to this?

These really were the best days of our flerm.
