Complete 2009 Emmy nominations coverage: '30 Rock,' 'Grey Gardens,' 'Family Guy' and all the other news, views and photos

'Family Guy': Breaking Emmys' funny bone barrier. It's the first animated show to be nominated in the oustanding comedy series category since "The Flinstones."

'30 Rock' gets record 22 Emmy nominations. HBO's original movie "Grey Gardens" grabs 17 nods, and Seth MacFarlane's animated "Family Guy" gets its first-ever comedy series nom.

Mary McNamara: Seven Emmy nods a good fit. Ties in outstanding comedy and drama series make for interesting choices, something the acting categories could really benefit from. Alas, Denis Leary and the 'Big Love' cast. (Now with video!)

HBO makes a comeback. HBO tops Emmy nominations with "Big Love," movies and miniseries.

AMC's heady times. For the second year in a row, AMC made television history, earning more Emmy nominations Thursday than any other basic cable network. 

Emmy barely commends series at their ends. In their final bows, "ER," "The Shield" and "Battlestar Galactica" did not receive a fond farewell from Emmy voters.

'Fringe' and 'Mentalist' snag viewers not voters. And 'True Blood' is nowhere to be found.

Farrah Fawcett friend: It 'would have meant so much.'  Fawcett did not live to see the nomination that one of her closest friends said would have made her the most proud.
