HOLLYWOOD — When it comes to Emmy noms, Fox has finally broken into the big leagues.

For the first time in the net’s 17-year history, Fox has tallied more noms than one of the Big Three broadcasters. Its kudocount of 37 noms — led by “24,” “American Idol” and “Malcolm in the Middle” — surpassed ABC’s total of 33 noms.

What’s more, Fox’s noms were spread out among a dozen different series (vs. five Alphabet skeins).

Fox programs just 15 hours per week, compared to 22 for the other major networks.

Fox Entertainment prexy Gail Berman said the TV Academy recognition serves as an added validation of the net’s programming strategy.

“This is just an impressive example of the idea we’ve been talking about for years now, which is the need to have a schedule that balances quality programming and commercial (instincts),” she said. “We have quality drama, high quality comedy and this tremendous reality franchise.”

“The emphasis this net puts on quality goes across the board,” Berman added.

Berman said now that Fox has broken through a nom barrier, it’s hoping some of its repeat nominees will strike Emmy gold come September.

“We’d love to see Jane (Kaczmarek) or Bryan (Cranston) win one, and with Kiefer (Sutherland), we think it’s his time,” she said, referring to the stars of “Malcolm in the Middle” and “24.”
