Emmy nominations announced: ‘Glee,’ ‘Mad Men’ among shows receiving nods [SLIDESHOW]
It was a “Glee”-ful morning.
The Fox phenomenon about a high school glee club scored 19 Emmy nominations Thursday morning — the most of any series — including best comedy series and acting nods for Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer.
It wasn’t the only freshman show to catch the eye of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. ABC’s comedy “Modern Family,” about a delightfully dysfunctional clan, earned 14 nominations. Among them: best comedy series, writing, directing and several best supporting actor and actress nominations, including one for Sofia Vergara, who helped to announce the nominations.
