The 2010 Emmy nominees have been announced -- and the leading nominees tackle very different subjects.

The HBO miniseries "The Pacific," focusing on World War II, earned a total of 24 nominations this year, including nods for outstanding miniseries, direction, and writing.

The television comedy "Glee," whose cast takes on a different musical artist each week, racked up 19 nominations. Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele were nominated in the lead actor and actress categories.

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will also give special honors to eight programs that provide "Television with a Conscience." Those honorees include "CSI," "Glee," and documentaries exploring autism and Alzheimer's disease.

The 62nd annual Primetime Emmys will be broadcast live from California on August 29th.
