NBCU topped the U.S. nominees for Monte Carlo TV Festival Awards with two, while ABC's Lost, in its last hurrah, got a nod for best drama.

Both of NBCU's nods were in the best comedy category for 30 Rock and The Office, with HBO's Hollywood buddy series Entourage getting the third comedy series nomination.

Cable shows took two of the three drama categories, with AMC's highly decorated retro ad series Mad Men (produced by Lionsgate) and Showtime's serial killer show Dexter joining Lost.

The winners will be announced June 10 during the festival in Monte Carlo.
