2010 Primetime Emmy nominations announced

Glee2
Thursday morning’s Emmy nominations offered up an interesting mix of suprises — both for what was nominated and what wasn’t nominated. On the one hand, “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” scored four noms — a nice send-off for O’Brien after what happened at NBC. On the flip side, “The Big Bang Theory” shockingly didn’t score an Emmy nom for outstanding comedy, despite a heroic campaign by Warner Bros. TV.

It was also a good day for “Modern Family,” and “Glee,” as many of both shows’ cast members scored noms on top of a nod in the outstanding comedy category. It’s a freshman smackdown!

Glee,” in particular, had a good morning, scoring 19 noms — the most of any series, period. Only “The Pacific,” with 24 nods, scored more.

Here’s a list of the major categories; stay tuned for more updates throughout the morning. Unless excitement over Betty White’s guest actress nomination shuts down the Internet.
