 – In the HBO took the most Emmy noms for 2010 with the big budget Tom Hanks mini-series The Pacific. That was followed by 19 nominations for Fox Glee and 17 nominations for AMC Mad Men. However, it was who didn’t get a nomination that sparked the most interest.

Jay Leno attempted to redefine prime time by replacing many scripted dramas at 9pm with the weeknight NBC talk show The Jay Leno Show. Leno left the flagship NBC The Tonight Show to host his new show. Although the move saved the NBC network a lot of money over the scripted dramas it replaced, the network bowed to affiliates who were seeing their 10pm news ratings crushed by Leno’s weak lead-in.

When Leno returned to The Tonight Show, there was outrage from fans of forced out host Conan O’Brien. Both versions of the show were put up for an Emmy nom. The Television Academy also didn’t nominate Two and Half Men star Charlie Sheen, in trouble with the law for Christmas Day domestic violence with his estranged wife.

Nominations for the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards covering the period of June 1, 2009 through May 31, 2010. Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Chairman and CEO John Shaffner presided over today’s nominations ceremony with ABC Modern Family star Sofia Vergara and NBC Community star Joel McHale. The announcements were broadcast today by the from the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood, California. Vergara found out that she was a 2010 Emmy nominee in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series.
