In an unprecedented move designed to head off the kind of cyberspace leaks that have played havoc with the nomination process the past two years, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences on Thursday opted to release onto its Web site the top 10 finalists for nominations for the 60th annual Primetime Emmy Awards in the outstanding comedy series and drama series categories.

The lists represent voting from the entire TV Academy membership and comprise 50 percent of the nomination tally. The other 50 percent will be determined this weekend during Blue Ribbon Panel screenings of submitted episodes before a collection of judges. The final list of nominees will be revealed July 17.
