Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Glee and American Idol are all up for awards at this year’s Emmy Awards. Glee received more nominations than any other music-oriented program or artist, with 12 nods including Best Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Jane Lynch, who will host the awards ceremony on September 18th. American Idol was just behind with 10 nominations including Outstanding Host for Ryan Seacrest and Outstanding Reality Competition Series.
Lady Gaga’s live HBO special Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden is nominated for five awards including Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special and a handful of technical categories. Justin Timberlake’s appearance on Saturday Night Live in May earned the singer three nods – one for Outstanding Guest Actor and two in the Outstanding Original Music category for his “Not Gonna Sing Tonight” monologue tune and his Lonely Island team-up “3-Way (The Golden Rule).” (Lady Gaga also appeared on the “3-Way” song, but was not nominated because she did not have a writing credit.)
