COO of the Television Academy Alan Perris announces the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards Nominations at Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre on July 8, 2010 in North Hollywood, California.

The Primetime Emmy Awards has a new set of contenders this year, with the musical comedy series Glee earning 19 nominations. Other new shows to get recognition include Modern Family and Nurse Jackie, while popular programs like The Big Bang Theory were shut out of a nomination. Which nominees did and didn't deserve a nod? Will the newcomers beat out perennial winners like Mad Men and 30 Rock?
