Grey Gardens, starring Drew Barrymore in a breakout performance, leads the TV Movie noms with 17, trailed by the Winston Churchill biopic Into the Storm, with 14.

For Outstanding Comedy, Musical or Variety Series, the nominations are The Colbert Report, The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, Late Show With David Letterman, Real Time With Bill Maher and the resurgent Saturday Night Live.

CBS, which has a lock on the Grammys, will air the Emmys this year. The show will be telecast Sept. 20 from the Nokia Theatre, with Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted this year’s Tony Awards, handling the emcee chores.
