'Angels in America' leads Emmy nominations with 21

By Lynne Elber, Associated Press | July 15, 2004

LOS ANGELES --"Angels in America," the surreal HBO miniseries adapted from a Pulitzer Prize-winning play about New Yorkers affected by the AIDS crisis in the 1980s, received a leading 21 Emmy nominations Thursday.

"The Sopranos" was the leading nominee among series, with 20.

In a year that saw changes in Emmy rules intended to broaden the field beyond familiar nominees, newcomers included Fox's critically acclaimed sitcom "Arrested Development" and CBS' drama "Joan of Arcadia."

TV Academy members gave a fond farewell to HBO's "Sex and the City" with a best comedy series nod for its final season, but didn't nominate two other departing series, "Friends" and "Frasier."

Along with "The Sopranos," which has yet to win a best drama series award, and "Joan of Arcadia," other nominees in the best drama series category include "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "24," and last year's winner, "The West Wing."

Joining "Arrested Development" and "Sex and the City" in the best comedy series category: "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Will & Grace" and last year's winner, "Everybody Loves Raymond."

HBO received a dominant 124 nominations, nearly twice that of runner-up NBC with 65 bids. CBS received 44 nominations; ABC had 33, Fox 31 and PBS 27.

John Ritter, the "8 Simple Rules" comedy star who died last year, received a posthumous nomination as best lead actor in a comedy series. Also nominated in the category are Larry David of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," Kelsey Grammer of "Frasier," Matt LeBlanc of "Friends" and Tony Shalhoub of "Monk," who was last year's winner.

Jennifer Aniston of "Friends" was nominated for best lead actress in a comedy series, along with Patricia Heaton of "Everybody Loves Raymond," Bonnie Hunt of "Life with Bonnie," Jane Kaczmarek of "Malcolm in the Middle" and Sarah Jessica Parker of "Sex and the City."

In the acting category for dramas, nominated lead actresses include last year's winner Edie Falco of "The Sopranos," Jennifer Garner of "Alias," Mariska Hargitay of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," Allison Janney of "The West Wing" and Amber Tamblyn of "Joan of Arcadia."

"It's far too nerve-racking at this hour of the morning," said Falco, who got up in the middle of the night as she also announced the nominees Thursday morning.

James Gandolfini of "The Sopranos," who was named best lead actor in a drama series last year, was nominated again. He's joined by Anthony LaPaglia of "Without a Trace," Martin Sheen of "The West Wing," James Spader of "The Practice" and Kiefer Sutherland of "24."

"The Reagans," which was bounced from CBS to cable's Showtime after some protested its portrayal of President Reagan, received seven nominations including outstanding made-for-TV movie. James Brolin and Judy Davis, who played Ronald and Nancy Reagan, received acting nods.

Other nominees in the TV movie category: "And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself," "Something the Lord Made," "Ike: Countdown to D-Day" and "The Lion in Winter."

"Angels in America," based on Tony Kushner's play which combines harsh reality and fantasy, was nominated as outstanding miniseries and earned acting nods for stars Emma Thompson, Al Pacino and Meryl Streep.

Other nominated miniseries: "American Family: Journey of Dreams," "Horatio Hornblower," "Prime Suspect 6: The Last Witness" and "Traffic: The Miniseries."

Nominees for the reality series category were Donald Trump's hit "The Apprentice," "The Amazing Race," "American Idol," "Last Comic Standing" and "Survivor."

"I really didn't know" the show would get nominated, Trump told cable TV's E! in an interview from Lake Tahoe, Nev. "The show is just really good. The characters worked and 'Apprentice 2' is going to be equally amazing. It's something we all love very much -- we worked hard on it and it hit a chord, it hit a note in the country."

Nominees for best supporting actor in a comedy series include Jeffrey Tambor of "Arrested Development," Brad Garrett and Peter Boyle for "Everybody Loves Raymond," David Hyde Pierce for "Frasier" and Sean Hayes for "Will & Grace."

The comedy series supporting actress bids went to three "Sex and the City" stars, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, along with Doris Roberts of "Everybody Loves Raymond" and Megan Mullally of "Will & Grace."

For supporting actress in a drama series, nominations went to Robin Weigert of "Deadwood," Tyne Daly of "Judging Amy," Drea de Matteo of "The Sopranos" and Janel Moloney and Stockard Channing of "The West Wing."

Drama series supporting actors who received nominations include Victor Garber of "Alias," Brad Dourif of "Deadwood," Michael Imperioli and Steve Buscemi of "The Sopranos" and John Spencer of "The West Wing."
