The raucously hilarious NBC comedy series 30 Rock has been off the air for six years now, but we almost returned to that absurd world created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock in the form of a spin-off that would have followed Alec Baldwin reprising his role as Jack Donaghy.

By this point in the awards race, it’s usually pretty clear who the frontrunners are. Most of the guilds have already thrown their support behind a few favorite films, which typically then go on to fare well at the Academy Awards.
