UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- July 8, 2010 - The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences today announced nominations for its 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards and NBC walked away with 48. NBC Universal's Universal Media Studios scored big, leading all television production companies with 50 nominations.

"It is very rewarding to see the work of so many of NBC Universal's artists honored with Emmy Award nominations today," said Jeff Gaspin, Chairman, NBC Universal Television Entertainment. "We congratulate them and look forward to a great night when the Emmy Awards are broadcast on NBC August 29."

"It is so gratifying to receive this incredible recognition from the TV Academy for so many of the shows we produce and air on NBC," said Angela Bromstad, President, NBC and Universal Media Studios. "We send congratulations and heartfelt thanks to our creative artists on the shows and entire team at the network and studio who work passionately and tirelessly to produce such outstanding programming."

Leading the charge is NBC's highly honored, 14-time Emmy-winning comedy series "30 Rock," which again flexed its Emmy muscle by garnering 15 nominations including it fourth-consecutive nod in the Outstanding Comedy Series category. The critically acclaimed series holds the distinction of winning the coveted Outstanding Comedy Series Emmy for the past three years and also stands as the TV Academy's all-time, single awards year nomination record holder for a comedy series with last year's tally of 22. The show's 2008 haul of seven statuettes earned "30 Rock" a place in the comedy series record books tying the previous record holder, "All in the Family," which set the record in 1972.

"30 Rock's" tally is spearheaded by Alec Baldwin, winner for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for the past two years, who was again nominated for his role as Jack Donaghy. This is the ninth overall Emmy nomination for the Oscar-nominated actor ("The Cooler") and the fourth for his work on "30 Rock." Tina Fey, a 16-time Emmy nominee with seven wins including five for "30 Rock" (Executive Producer, 2007; Writing, 2008; Executive Producer, 2008; Lead Actress, 2008; Executive Producer, 2009), has also picked up another nomination for Lead Actress for her role as Liz Lemon. Further, she is nominated for a guest-starring role hosting an episode of "Saturday Night Live." Jane Krakowski was also nominated for her Supporting Actress role on "30 Rock."

In Outstanding Guest Star categories, 2007 "30 Rock" guest actress winner Elaine Stritch is in the running again in that category. Other "30 Rock" Guest Star nominees include Jon Hamm and Will Arnett. Tina Fey and Betty White grabbed Guest Actress nominations for their roles on "SNL." On the drama side, Ann-Margret was nominated for her guest-starring role on "Law & Order: SVU."

Emmy voters also turned out in force for other Universal Media Studios programs that gathered a combined industry-leading 50 nominations and once again proclaimed the production company the leader among all television studios. Besides "30 Rock," another Universal Media Studios contender resonating favorably with TV Academy voters is previous Outstanding Comedy Series winner "The Office" (2006) which scored with four nominations including another series nod. That brings to 35 its career total with four wins. This year's nominations include seven-time nominee Steve Carell (five for acting, two for producing) who will compete in the Lead Actor category again. The series also picked up a writing nomination as well as a sound mixing nom.

Other Universal Media Studios highlights include 25-time Emmy winning "Saturday Night Live" which set a new TV Academy nomination record for most nominations for any program. This year's 12 nominations, including a 15th for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series (it previously won two - 1976, 1993), and brings its total to 126 over its illustrious 34-year run. The previous record holder was NBC's "ER" which had 124 career nominations.

"The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien," who has 14 consecutive writing nominations for his "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and one win in 2007, pulled in four nominations including Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series.

Additionally, "Law & Order: SVU's" Mariska Hargitay, a Lead Actress winner in 2006, picked up her seventh consecutive nomination, and "House" title star Hugh Laurie nailed his fifth consecutive shot as Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

"Parks and Recreation" leading actress Amy Poehler, a two-time nominee in a supporting role on "SNL" (2008, 2009), picked up her first nomination in a Lead Actress role.

NBC Sports was nominated for four Primetime Emmy Awards for its coverage of the Opening Ceremony of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. The nominations were for Directing, Lighting Direction, Musical Direction and Outstanding Special Class Programs.

In the interactive category, NBC Universal rang up four nominations including three for NBC.com for "The Biggest Loser Digital Experience" (Interactive Media - Nonfiction), "The Jimmy Fallon Digital Experience" (Interactive Media - Nonfiction) and "30 Rock: Webisodes" (Outstanding | Programs).
