Six Feet Under: Art Streiber

For the second year in a row, ”Six Feet Under” dominated the 55th annual Emmy Awards nominations, announced Thursday morning from North Hollywood’s Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre. ”Six Feet” grabbed 16 nominations, while perennial Emmy favorite ”The West Wing” nabbed 15. ”The Sopranos” (absent from last year’s competition), ”Everybody Loves Raymond” and ”Sex and the City” each got 13.

”24” and ”CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” were also honored in the drama series category, while ”Curb Your Enthusiasm,” ”Everybody Loves Raymond,” ”Will & Grace,” and ”Sex and the City” will joust with ”Friends” for best comedy series.

Among the awards’ surprises was a first-time actor in a comedy nod for Tony Shalhoub, who plays the titular obsessive-compulsive detective on ”Monk.” And for the first time in 11 years, ”Law & Order” wasn’t honored for best drama, apparently because ”CSI” bumped it out.

Plus, the oft-stodgy Emmys loosened up with a new category, honoring reality/competition shows. The nominees are ”Amazing Race,” ”American Idol,” and ”Survivor,” plus the one-offs ”AFI’s 100 Years…100 Passions: America’s Greatest Love Stories” and ”100 Years of Hope and Humor.” Surprising no one, HBO was once again the most-nominated network, with 109 nods, followed by NBC with 77. The 55th Annual Emmys will be broadcast on Fox Sept. 21 from L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium.
