Into The West Leads Emmy Primetime Nominations

STEVEN SPIELBERG's historical mini-series INTO THE WEST leads the nominations for August's (06) Primetime Emmy Awards with 16 nominations KIEFER SUTHERLAND-starring action series 24 has scooped 12 nods, while GREY'S ANATOMY is up for 11 awards, with both shows named in the coveted Best Drama Series category. Despite ruling the roost last year, both LOST and DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES have failed to receive nominations for Best Drama Series - but now defunct comedy WILL + GRACE scooped 10 nods. Grey's Anatomy and 24 face stiff competition from HOUSE, THE SOPRANOS and THE WEST WING in the Best Drama Series category, while the US remake of hit RICKY GERVAIS show THE OFFICE leads the way the Best Comedy Drama Series category.
