30 Rock, Grey's Anatomy in Contention for Emmy Awards



Could 30 Rock pick up the Emmy for outstanding comedy series for the second year in a row?




The final nominations will not be announced for another three weeks – but the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has offered a preview in advance of the July 17 announcement. In an unprecedented move, the organization revealed the top 10 finalists in this year's comedy and drama competition, TV Week is reporting.

Comedies in consideration include: Curb Your Enthusiasm, Entourage, Family Guy, Flight of the Conchords, The Office, Pushing Daisies, Two and a Half Men, Ugly Betty and Weeds.

The drama finalists are: Boston Legal, Damages, Dexter, Friday Night Lights, Grey’s Anatomy, House, Lost, Mad Men and The Tudors.

Last year, in its final season, The Sopranos took the outstanding drama series trophy. This year, AMC's Mad Men is considered a frontrunner in that category; the '60s-era drama won the Golden Globe for best dramatic television series earlier this year.

Academy officials are expected to whittle down each list of possible nominees to five selections, though if voting is close, as many as six or seven shows could be nominated. Academy officials say they decided to reveal finalists this year because information leaked early last year.

How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris and Pushing Daisies star Kristin Chenoweth will announce the final nominees at 8:40 a.m. ET on July 17 in North Hollywood. The Emmys ceremony will air live from Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre on Sept. 21.

Bret Michaels: I Still Love Ambre Lake

Poison frontman Bret Michaels will be looking for Miss Right again when VH1’s Rock of Love Bus starts shooting next month, but future contestants be warned: he’s still not over season 2 winner Ambre Lake.

“I still love her,” Michaels told people on his luxury tour bus Tuesday night moments before stepping onstage at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey. “I’m not really over her yet. We still hang. She was just out with me a couple days ago and we were having a great time. She’s really got it. I think she’s great.”

Season 1 winner Jessica Rickleff dumped the rocker soon after the show ended. In April, Michaels thought he had found love again in 37-year-old Lake. But in July, people reported that they broke up because of their conflicting work schedules.

“The reason for destruction of all my relationships is that I’m passionate about being on the road and making music,” he says. “I have great relationships. But the women I date don’t realize that I spend between 6 and 8 mont…
