The HBO mini-series "The Pacific" picked up the most Emmy nominations on Thursday, but the comedy categories are what everyone's talking about.

The cast of “Glee” has something to sing about – 19 Emmy nominations for the show about the high school misfit choir and its director.

Caustic cheerios cheerleader coach Jane Lynch is nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy.

Newcomer Lea Michelle is nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy, setting up a funny-girl face-off with veteran Tina Fey of “30 Rock.”

Rounding out that category: Amy Pohler, Edie Falco, Julia Louis-Dryfus, and last year's winner Toni Colette.

This year “30 Rock” could be toppled by the determined kids of “glee” for Best Comedy.

The other nominees: “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Modern Family,” “Nurse Jackie” and “The Office.”

Some are calling it the biggest snub of the Emmy nominations this year. “Jay Leno's Tonight Show” was passed over and Conan O'brien, who nominated himself, was given a nod for his short term on “The Tonight Show.”

On the serious side, Best Drama nominations include: “Breaking Bad,” “Dexter,” “The Good Wife,” “Mad Men,” “True Blood” and “Lost.”

“Lost” is hoping for a fond farewell after the show finally sailed into the sunset after six seasons.
