NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. � JULY 19, 2007 � NBC was proud as a peacock this morning as the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced nominees for the 59th Annual Emmy Awards. NBC came out the second-leading broadcast network, only one behind ABC, with 69 nominations that include outstanding series nods for two of its freshmen series, "Heroes" and "30 Rock." The network tally represents a 71 percent increase over last year's nominations and includes nominees in virtually all scripted comedy and drama categories.

"I am absolutely thrilled with the number of nominations earned by our veterans and newcomers at this morning's Emmy announcement," said Ben Silverman, Co-Chairman of NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios. "It's a testament to the popularity of our shows and our network as well as a validation of the strength of our programming in all genres. I congratulate all our nominees on both sides of the camera."

"Once again, TV Academy members have made a very powerful statement about the quality of programming and individual achievements at NBC," said Marc Graboff, Co-Charman of NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios. "I am extremely pleased with not only NBC's performance but the incredible accomplishment of Universal Media Studios which has recorded a new, personal best with 60 nominations. On behalf of everyone at NBC, I want to extend our sincerest best for such well-deserved recognition by our industry peers."

Leading the charge for NBC is the freshman comedy series, "30 Rock," which picked up 10 nominations including Outstanding Comedy Series as well as lead actor (Alec Baldwin), lead actress (Tina Fey), writing and directing.

Last year's comedy winner, "The Office" scored well with nine including Outstanding Comedy Series, lead actor (Steve Carell), supporting actor (Rainn Wilson), supporting actress (Jenna Fischer), writing and directing.

NBC's comedy writing dominated the scripted series category with four out of the five nominees as "30 Rock" picked up two and "The Office" also picked up two.

Freshman drama series, the critically acclaimed talk of the industry, "Heroes," came out of the gate with an impressive eight nominations including Outstanding Drama Series and also a nod to Golden Globe nominee Masi Oka who has been nominated for supporting actor.

Last year's Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, Mariska Hargitay, picked up her fourth nomination for her work on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

Patricia Arquette, who was twice-nominated for Golden Globe Awards and scored an Emmy win for Lead Actress in a Drama Series in 2005, was again nominated in that category for her starring role on "Medium." This is her second Emmy nomination.

Jaime Pressly, who was nominated last year for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy for "My Name is Earl" has earned another nomination in that category.

On the late night front, "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" was again nominated for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series. The show also picked up its 11th nomination for writing.

The Primetime Emmy Awards will be held on Sunday, Sept. 16, live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The Creative Arts Emmys will be handed out the week before, on Saturday, Sept. 8, also at the Shrine Auditorium.
