Emmy nominations: steve carrell nominated for emmy for The Office

Emmy Nominations have been announced today and the Emmy Nominees are….

Emmy nominees were announced just this morning. Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”) and Kristen Chenoweth (“Pushing Daisies”) are announced as contenders this year.

America Ferrara made the list again for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series for her performance on “Ugly Betty,” which earned her the Emmy last year. She is joined by other funny women, Mary Louise Parker, (“Weeds”) Tina Fey, (“30 Rock”) Christina Applegate (“Samantha Who?”) and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“The New Adventures of Old Christine”).

The funny guys for emmy nominations include Tony Shalhoub (“Monk”), hilarious Steve Carrell (“The Office”), Lee Pace (“Pushing Daisies”), Alec Baldwin (“30 Rock”) and Charlie Sheen (“Two And A Half Men”).

The top 10 comedies that were previously announced include “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Entourage,” “The Office,” “30 Rock” and “Two And A Half Men” made the cut.

In the drama category, “Boston Legal,” “Damages,” “Dexter,” “House,” “Lost” and “Mad Men” took the top slots.

Taking top nods with 23 bids is HBO’s historical drama “John Adams.” Paul Giamatti, who played Adams, is up for best lead actor.

“30 Rock” followed with 17 noms, “Mad Men” with 16, “Pushing Daisies” with 12, “Recount” with 11, “Bernard and Doris” with 10, “Tin Man” with 9, the mini-series “Cranford”, “Dancing with the Stars” and “The Office” with 8 nominations each.

This year, for the first time, there will be an Emmy award for Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program. Ryan Secreast, Tom Bergeron, Howie Mendel, Heidi Klum, and the cute dimpled Jeff Probst have been honored with first nominations in the reality category.

In a surprise move, both Neil and Kristen were told they’re nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actor/Actress categories! They’re joined by Jeremy Piven (“Entourage”), Kevin Dillon (“Entourage”), Rainn Wilson (“The Office”), Jon Cryer (“Two And A Half Men”), Jean Smart (“Samantha Who?”), Amy Poehler (“Saturday Night Live”), Holland Taylor (“Two And A Half Men”) and Vanessa Williams (“Ugly Betty”).

Best actor in a drama nominees are Gabriel Byrne (“In Treatment”), Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”), Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”), Hugh Laurie (“House”) and James Spader (“Boston Legal”). “Dexter,” which originated on Showtime, earned a short run on CBS following the writers strike.

The nominees for best actress in a drama are Glenn Close (“Damages”), Sally Field (“Brothers and Sisters”), Mariska Hargitay (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), Holly Hunter (“Saving Grace”) and Kyra Sedgwick (“The Closer”).

Sarah Silverman earned three nominations, all for different programs: one for a guest shot on “Monk,” another for contributing to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and a third for producing her own “Sarah Silverman Program”

Kristin Chenoweth, Neil Patrick Harris and TV academy Chairman John Shaffner announced the nominations. Chenoweth was particularly bubbly, throwing in a non sequitur about once dating “Survivor” host Jeff Probst and declining to sing “Happy Birthday” because “the Emmys can’t afford me to sing that song” due to licensing arrangements.

The Emmy Awards ceremony will be held September 21 and broadcast on ABC.
