Nominations for the 62nd annual Primetime Emmy Awards were announced today, and FOX show Glee and HBO miniseries The Pacific cleaned up, taking 19 and 24 nominations, respectively. And if you were wondering, Emmy voters are clearly Team Coco.

The Emmys have nominated old favorites like Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin for 30 Rock, but also made room for Glee‘s Lea Michele,  Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Mike O’Malley and Chris Colfer. Other newcomers include Julianna Marguiles for The Good Wife and several Modern Family ensemble members.

On Tuned In, TIME’s James Poniewozik applauds the long-overdue recognition for Friday Night Lights (at least in acting categories), but bemoans the Emmys overlooking Community and Parks and Recreation on NBC.

But the person with the last Emmy laugh is certainly Conan O’Brien. For the best variety, music or comedy series category, The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien was nominated. Strikingly absent from the nominees? The Jay Leno Show. The awards will be presented on August 29 with host Jimmy Fallon. Wonder if Fallon feels awkward not being nominated either.

Check out Tuned In for a list of the nominees.
