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.

Gwyneth Paltrow Wants More Kids

Apple and Moses, make room in the house: Your mother, Gwyneth Paltrow, wants to add to the family.

"I would love to have another child at some point. I feel very, very lucky that I have two healthy, nice ones," the Shakespeare in Love Oscar winner and Iron Man 2 star tells Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Thursday.

Paltrow, who's been married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin since 2003, assures the TV host that, despite their tender ages, her kids are nice and well-behaved – for the most part.

"They're great. They're so sweet," says Paltrow, 37. Then again, she also admits that sometimes her children are given to tantrums, but aren't all children?
