(CNN) - "Glee" really has something to cheer about now.
The Fox series about a misfit-filled glee club earned 19 nominations Thursday morning as the picks for the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards were announced.
Among the nods: best comedy series, best actor in a comedy series for Matthew Morrison and best actress in a comedy series for Lea Michele.
"What an amazing year it's been! I never could have wished for more! Thank you all so much!" said "Glee" cast member Chris Colfer, who was nominated for best supporting actor, in a Twitter message.
"The Pacific," the HBO miniseries about Marines in World War II's Pacific theater, topped all entrants with 24 nominations.
The nominations, often criticized for picking the same names every year, welcomed several new entries along with "Glee."
"The Good Wife," the CBS show starring Julianna Margulies as a lawyer whose husband is derailed by scandal, earned nominations for best drama and best actress in a drama. "Modern Family," the breakout ABC comedy, earned a bid for best comedy series. And two members of the "Friday Night Lights" cast - Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton - earned acting nods for their work on the much-praised but low-rated series.
"Congrats to our entire cast and crew. Ed O'Neill deserves a BIG award," said "Modern Family" producer Steven Levitan on Twitter. "Modern Family" earned 14 nominations.
Old standbys also were recognized, including "Saturday Night Live," which earned 12 nominations and has now surpassed "ER" as the most nominated show in Emmy history. The late-night show, which recently concluded its 35th season, has received 126 nominations in its history.

I have been writing to anyone who will listen. I recently watched the documentary "The Cove". How is it that no one is talking about this and getting the news out. Every year 23,000 dolphins are killed for absolutely no reason......what is going on in this world????? Why are our politicians not helping????? so many celebrities bragging about their homes and lifestyles on cribs and our world is just crumbling.....I will continue to write until someone has the balls to take this on. Not only for me but for generations to come.
