The 2010 Emmy nominations were revealed Thursday morning. The 2010 Emmy nominations are for the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards Show that will air on Sunday, August 29, 2010. This is the 62nd annual Emmy Awards Show, and it could mark an extremely competitive year for the awards. Joel McHale from the NBC comedy Community and Sofia Vergara from the ABC comedy Modern Family presented the 2010 Emmy nominees with Television Academy chairman and CEO John Shaffner early Thursday morning. The trio presented the announcement of the show as well as the nominees from the major categories that will be awarded in August.
The following is the full list of Emmy nominees that were presented on the morning of Thursday, July 8 in the main categories of these Emmy Awards. There appears to be some very stiff competition in a number of the categories, and quite possibly some repeat winners with many of the nominees being rewarded for great work again.
