Glee is taking the Emmy Awards by storm! The hit show just received 19 nominations for the annual awards show, coming in second in number of nods behind behind World War II miniseries The Pacific, which has the potential to win 24 statues. Both shows are up against some stiff competition, though.

Glee goes head-to-head against Curb Your Enthusiasm, Modern Family, The Office, 30 Rock and Nurse Jackie in the Best Comedy Series category, giving it the opportunity to break 30 Rock’s three year run of wins.

Mad Men, the tale of an advertising agency in the 1960s, picked up 17 nominations, including Best Drama Series against Breaking Bad, Lost, True Blood, The Good Wife and Dexter.

Tina Fey joked about her selection in the Best Comedy Actress category for her role in 30 Rock, saying: “This is great and exciting news. Also, this seems like an appropriate time for me to announce to NBC that I will not be renewing my contract – with my gym.”

A number of British stars also received nods – both Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith will compete for the prize in the Best Actress in a Miniseries category for their roles in Cranford and Capturing Mary respectively, while Sir Ian McKellen has been nominated in the equivalent male category for his performance in The Prisoner.

Jimmy Fallon will host this year’s awards, which will broadcast live from Los Angeles on August 29.
