The flashback finale of Bob Newhart's "Newhart" series is one of the choices in the Emmys' hunt for TV's most memorable momets.

The most memorable moments in television history will be revealed during the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards next month, and it's up to voters to decide which bits should take top honors.

Forty ''moments'' -- 20 dramatic and 20 comedic -- are in the running. Comedy contenders include ''M-A-S-H,'' ''Mork & Mindy,'' ''Sex and the City'' and ''The Cosby Show,'' while ''Buffy the Vampire Slayer,'' ''Miami Vice,'' ''Moonlighting'' and ''The Sopranos'' are among the drama candidates.

After delivering one of the worst performances in the history of the MTV Video Music Awards, Britney Spears has a chance to be crowned this year as the absolute best.

The rebounding pop queen is nominated for video of the year for ''Piece of Me,'' a clip that had fun with her reputation as a tabloid queen. Other nominees included the Jonas Brothers for ''Burnin Up,'' Chris Brown for ''Forever,'' the Pussycat Dolls for ''When I Grow Up'' and newcomers The Ting Tings for ''Shut Up and Let Me Go.''

Other nominees announced today -- Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Slipknot, Linkin Park and Foo Fighters -- were in the category of best rock video.
