The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences who bring us the Emmys every year have pre-released Top 10 lists of comedy and drama series in contention for the awards. The full nominees list will be out in a few weeks.
Weeds scored a spot on the comedy Top 10, along with HBO shows such as Curb Your Enthusiasm and Entourage, both of which feel pretty irrelevant these days, and network series including Ugly Betty, The Office and Family Guy.
Five finalists from each category are expected to make the official list when the noms announced July 17. The Academy decided to do the pre-release because last year some of the info leaked ahead of time.
