‘Glee’ earns a whopping 19 Emmy nominations

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: A year ago, only a single episode of Glee had aired on Fox as a preview of the show’s fall kickoff. But it was clear from just that one episode that the show was something special.

Earlier today, Glee added to its solid ratings, gigantic music sales and critical acclaim by earning more Emmy nominations – 19 – than any other series on television.

Glee’s tally came close to the record 22 accumulated by 30 Rock last year.

The series was nominated for outstanding comedy series and stars Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele got nods in the leading comedy actor and actress categories, respectively. Breakout star Jane Lynch, who plays cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, got the first Emmy nomination of her career in the supporting actress category. Chris Colfer, who plays a gay teen Kurt Hummel on show, was nominated in the supporting actor category.
