'The Sopranos' among winners at Emmy Awards
Longtime HBO mainstay 'The Sopranos' walked home with the last award of the night, outstanding drama miniseries, at the annual Primetime Emmy Awards this evening in Los Angelas, CA. The glamorous ceremony recognizes excellence in television programming and was anticapated this year largely because of 'The Sopranos.' Many nominees even admitted they were sure they weren't going to win if they were in the same category as a 'The Sopranos' nominee, as Denis Leary, who was nominated for outstanding male lead in a drama with James Gandolfini of 'The Sopranos' said "I don’t expect to win, It’s my favorite show. I think it will win everything" before the program. The hit series concluded this season after 10 years with HBO.
The ceremony was hosted by Ryan Seacrest, and other winners consisted of Jeremy Piven, also from a HBO program, 'Entourage', who won the award for outstanding male acting in a comedic series, and NBC's '30 Rock', who won the award for outstanding comedy series.
