14 of 19: Margaret Cho of '30 Rock' on being nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series:

'Im so excited to have been nominated for an Emmy, especially for 30 Rock, which is an incredible show and also for playing a deranged and deceased world dictator who has divided the small country of my origin in two. That's the best part. I think that's what I'd call iron curtain irony,' the actress said in a statement obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.

This is Cho's first Emmy nomination. She played a satirical version of Kim Jong-il in the comedy series.
