Glee, the spunky TV musical comedy about high school misfits and the teachers who shepherd them, was a top Emmy nominee Thursday with 19 bids, including for best comedy series and stars Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele.

The leading nominee was the gritty, unsparing World War II drama, The Pacific, with 24 nominations.

Conan O'Brien is gone from The Tonight Show but his short tenure as host is not forgotten — the late-night show with him at the helm nabbed a nomination as best variety, music or comedy series, while resurrected Jay Leno was snubbed in the category.

The final season of Lost garnered nominations for best drama series and a nod for star Matthew Fox and supporting nominations for Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson.

Saturday Night Live received 12 nominations for a total 126 nominations during its run, surpassing the ER all-time record of 124 bids. — AP
