The Sopranos: Barry Wetcher

Emmy voters rounded up the usual suspects as the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced this year’s nominees Thursday morning. Old favorite ”The Sopranos” swiped the most nominations of any show (22), followed by ”The West Wing” (18). The most nominated sitcom was ”Will & Grace” (12), followed by ”Frasier” (11). The highest-scoring miniseries was ”Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows” (13 nominations), while the most honored TV movie was the baseball drama ”61*” (12). HBO grabbed the most nods of any channel (94), followed by NBC (76), ABC (63), CBS (46), and Fox (40).

Many previously nominated actors and actresses held on to their longtime slots like rent-controlled New York apartments. However, in the drama category ”CSI”’s Marg Helgenberger was one new face, as was ”Homicide” alumnus Andre Braugher for his work on the short-lived ”Gideon’s Crossing.” And among the comedy nominees was first-timer Frankie Muniz (”Malcolm in the Middle”). The 53rd annual awards ceremony will take place September 16 in Los Angeles.
