‘Sopranos,’ HBO movie top Emmy list
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES - “The Sopranos,” the mob series that went to its grave with a shockingly inconclusive finale, found a happy ending today with 15 Emmy nominations including best drama.
The made-for-TV movie “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” led all nominees with 17 bids.
“Grey's Anatomy,” which came through a difficult year in which star Isaiah Washington was fired after twice using an anti-homosexual slur, wasn’t hurt when it came to Emmy bids. Besides best drama series, there were nominations for four supporting cast members and two guest actors.
The miniseries “The Starter Wife” also was a top nominee with 10 bids.
The freshman hit “Ugly Betty,” based on a Colombian telenovela, made it into the ranks of best comedy series nominees. It’s joined by “Entourage,”“30 Rock,”“Two and a Half Men” and last year’s winner in the category, “The Office.”
“Ugly Betty‘s” America Ferrera was recognized with a nod for her starring role.
Joining Mr. Gandolfini among lead drama series actor nominees were Hugh Laurie of “House,”Denis Leary of “Rescue Me,”James Spader of “Boston Legal” and last year’s winner, Kiefer Sutherland of “24.” Last year’s top drama series was “24,” but it was snubbed this time.
Miss Falco will compete with Patricia Arquette of “Medium,” Minnie Driver of “The Riches,”Sally Field of “Brothers & Sisters,”Kyra Sedgwick of “The Closer” and last year’s winner, Mariska Hargitay of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
Miss Sedgwick got the news immediately. She helped announce bids for the 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in a brief ceremony at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences‘ Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre.
