Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has announced nominees for this year's Primetime Emmy Awards in full on Thursday, July 16. NBC's comedy series "30 Rock" led the pack with a total of 22 nods. The amount of nominations the show has received marks the most nods that a TV show has ever collected in history.

Beside scoring Best Actress in Comedy nomination for its leading actress Tina Fey, "30 Rock" also earned Best Actor in Comedy nomination for its leading actor, Alec Baldwin. Outstanding Comedy Series, Best Supporting Actor in Comedy, as well as Best Supporting Actress in Comedy were some other nods that the show got. In addition to those, "30 Rock" brought Jennifer Aniston a gong for Outstanding Guest Actress In a Comedy Series, thanks to her guest starring role as Claire.

Also nabbing multiple nominations was "Mad Men." The AMC's drama series earned 16 nods all at once, just one count less than those collected by HBO's "Grey Gardens." The show's leading cast, Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss, both scored a nod for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series respectively.

Among the nominations that HBO's TV movie "Grey Gardens" nabbed were Outstanding Made for Television Movie, Outstanding Lead Actress for Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange, and Outstanding Supporting Actor for Ken Howard. Partial list of Primetime Emmys' nominees is made available after the news, while the complete list is on Emmys.tv.
