LOS ANGELES — Freshmen series ‘‘Heroes’’ and ‘‘Ugly Betty’’ are on the Emmy-nominations short list, according to a Web site that tracks entertainment awards. Judges screening potential Emmy Award nominees for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences last weekend in Beverly Hills came up with 10 top contenders each for the best drama and best comedy series categories, TheEnvelope.com has reported. ...

The site quoted unidentified judges.

Five nominees ultimately will be chosen, based on a combination of the panelists’ votes and polling of the general academy membership.

The drama finalists, according to the Web site, are ‘‘Heroes,’’ ‘‘Friday Night Lights,’’ ‘‘Boston Legal,’’ ‘‘Dexter,’’ ‘‘Grey’s Anatomy,’’ ‘‘House,’’ ‘‘Lost,’’ ‘‘Rome,’’ ‘‘The Sopranos’’ and ‘‘24.’’
The comedy contenders as reported by The Envelope are ‘‘Ugly Betty,’’ ‘‘Desperate Housewives,’’ ‘‘Entourage,’’ ‘‘Extras,’’ ‘‘My Name Is Earl,’’ ‘‘The Office,’’ ‘‘Scrubs,’’ ‘‘30 Rock,’’ ‘‘Two and a Half Men’’ and ‘‘Weeds.’’

The TV academy declined to confirm the accuracy of the information but noted that all academy members taking part in the judging process are asked to sign a confidentiality agreement.

‘‘The Primetime Emmy nomination process should not be compromised by premature disclosure of nominations information prior to the announcement of the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards nominees on July 19,’’ the academy said in its statement Monday.

It had no comment on ‘‘any violations of that agreement or on any speculative reporting of nomination data,’’ the academy said.
