'Into the West' garnered 16 Emmy nominations

LOS ANGELES, California -- Stalwart suspense drama "24" and "Grey's Anatomy," the hit hospital drama that focuses as much on its interns' love lives as medicine, were among the top nominees announced Thursday, July 6 for the "58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards."

The leading nominee, with 16 bids, was the miniseries, "Into the West." In a major reversal from last year's awards, neither "Lost" or "Desperate Housewives" repeated their best series nominations. "Lost" went on to win the 2005 trophy.

"Honey, I got nominated. It's hilarious, it's unbelievable," Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who helped announce the bids that included her own for "The New Adventures of Old Christine," told her husband, writer-producer Brad Hall, over the phone.

"My skin feels like it's buzzing," she told The Associated Press, in an interview following her duties as co-announcer for the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy Award nominations. "Or maybe that's from all the coffee I've been drinking since 1 a.m."

A number of acting bids went to stars of shows that have left the air, including Frances Conroy and Peter Krause for "Six Feet Under," Geena Davis for "Commander in Chief" and Martin Sheen, Allison Janney and Alan Alda for "The West Wing."

"Will & Grace," which ended its eight-year run last season, received a warm farewell with 10 nominations, the most for a comedy series. Among the nominated reality series were ratings phenemenon "American Idol" and "The Amazing Race."

"24," with what many considered its strongest season, led all series with 12 nominations, followed by "Grey's Anatomy" with 11. Both received best drama series bids and were joined in the category by "House," "The Sopranos" and "The West Wing."

For "24," Kiefer Sutherland received a best actor bid. Among the "Grey's Anatomy" stars recognized were Golden Globe winner Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson, with supporting actress nominations. The show was shut out of the best actress and actor categories.

"I'm so happy for our show. My family is here, so I got hugs right away, and the cast is here, so we're hugging on each other. Maybe we can go have a really expensive dinner," Wilson said in a phone call from Milan, Italy, where she and the cast are promoting the show.

The comedy series nominees were "Arrested Development," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "The Office," "Scrubs" and "Two and a Half Men." Among the networks, longtime Emmy powerhouse HBO was the front-runner with 95 nominations, followed by ABC with 63, CBS with 47, NBC with 47 and Fox with 41.

The stars of "Desperate Housewives," which lost its status as critical darling in its sophomore season although it held its ratings, were missing this year from the lead acting category. The stars of "Lost" met the same fate.

Besides Sutherland, other best actor nominations for a drama went to Peter Krause for "Six Feet Under," Denis Leary for "Rescue Me," Christopher Meloni for "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and Martin Sheen for "The West Wing."

Joining Conroy, Davis and Janney in the best drama series actress category were Mariska Hargitay of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and Kyra Sedgwick for "The Closer."

The nominees for best actress in a comedy series were Stockard Channing for "Out of Practice," Jane Kaczmarek for "Malcolm in the Middle," Lisa Kudrow for "The Comeback," Debra Messing for "Will & Grace" and Julia Louis-Dreyfus for "The New Adventures of Old Christine."

Louis-Dreyfus, who won previously for "Seinfeld," was joined by another past Emmy winner, "Everybody Loves Raymond's" Brad Garrett to announce nominations in the top categories in a brief televised ceremony Thursday, July 6 at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre.

Nominees for lead actor in a comedy series were Steve Carrell of "The Office," Larry David of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," Kevin James of "The King of Queens," Tony Shalhoub of "Monk" and Charlie Sheen of "Two and a Half Men."

"This is a very exciting moment for everyone involved with the show. We are all extremely honored. I'm also additionally overjoyed by being personally recognized as well," Carrell said.

Showing the flag for "Desperate Housewives" was series newcomer Alfre Woodard, who received a bid as best supporting actress in a comedy. Joining her were Cheryl Hines of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," Jaime Pressly of "My Name Is Earl," Elizabeth Perkins of "Weeds" and Megan Mullally of "Will & Grace."

Actors nominated in the supporting category in comedy were Will Arnett of "Arrested Development," Jeremy Piven of "Entourage," Bryan Cranston of "Malcolm in the Middle," Jon Cryer of "Two and a Half Men" and Sean Hayes of "Will & Grace."

For drama series, best supporting actor bids went to William Shatner for "Boston Legal," Oliver Platt for "Huff," Michael Imperioli for "The Sopranos," Gregory Itzin for "24" and Alan Alda for "The West Wing."

"It's totally bittersweet. Bittersweet is the order of the day. But we'll take the sweet," said Platt, whose series was canceled after its second season. Besides Oh and Wilson, actresses in the supporting category, drama, were Candice Bergen for "Boston Legal," Blythe Danner for "Huff" and Jean Smart for "24."

Top nominees in the movie and miniseries field, besides "Into the West," included "Elizabeth I," "Mrs. Harris" and "Bleak House." Besides "Mrs. Harris," the made-for-TV movie nominees were two September 11-based dramas, "Flight 93" and "The Flight That Fought Back." Also nominated were "The Girl in the Cafe" and "Yesterday."

Best miniseries bids went to "Sleeper Cell" as well as "Bleak House," "Elizabeth I" and "Into the West." Nominated lead actresses in a miniseries or movie include Gillian Anderson for "Bleak House," Kathy Bates for "Ambulance Girl," Annette Bening for "Mrs. Harris" and Judy Davis for "A Little Thing Called Murder."

Actors nominated for their miniseries or movie performance were Andre Braugher for "Thief," Charles Dance for "Bleak House," Ben Kingsley for "Mrs. Harris," Jon Voight for "Pope John Paul II" and Donald Sutherland, joining his son, Kiefer, in the Emmy race, for "Human Trafficking."

The Emmy Awards are scheduled to air on Sunday, August 27 on NBC, with Conan O'Brien as host of the Shrine Auditorium ceremony. The awards, traditionally held in September at the start of the TV season, were moved up because of NBC's addition of Sunday Night Football to its schedule.

There are 94 Emmy categories, including four to be announced later this month. Other Emmy honors, including those for technical achievement and guest actors and actresses in series, will be given at the creative-arts ceremony on August 19.

Penn & Teller to Host 2006 Creative Emmy Awards

16_las_penn1.jpg

Penn & Teller

Penn & Teller will host the 2006 Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony. The two "defy labels and their genre of magic and offbeat humor will no doubt provide us with one mind-boggling show," Spike Jones Jr., the show's producer, said on Tuesday, August 1.

Penn & Teller have been mixing comedy with magic since they teamed up in 1975. The duo regularly performs in Las Vegas and has appeared on numerous TV shows, including their own Showtime program that debunks pop-culture myths and pop-psychology theories.

The 2006 Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony will present trophies in 73 categories, including those for technical achievement and guest actors and actresses in series. The ceremony will be held on Saturday, August 19. The prime-time Emmys are scheduled for Sunday, August 27.

My thoughts on last night's Emmy Awards ceremony:

Best: Conan O' Brien!

Seeing Dick Clark again (what an amazing man!)

Hugh Laurie and Helen Murran monologue

video montage of Jon Stewart show, etc.

Worst: Farrah Fawcett...I'm sure the memories of every 40-something man who had a crush on her were ruined.

Best dressed: Evangeline Lilly and Helen Mirren. All I can say is class, class, CLASS!

Worst dressed: Candace Bergen - what in the heck was that that she had on anyway???

and Gillian Anderson

I'd love to hear others takes on last night... :)

I enjoyed this award show more than most which surprised even me! I'm not a big Conan O'Brien fan and I thought his opening was impeccable entertainment . . . perfect blend of satire and self-mocking. I even enjoyed his opening musical finale with the rewording of "Trouble" from "The Music Man." An emcee job worthy of even the great Billy Crystal himself.

I actually found myself laughing out loud and then crying from pure sentiment over segments for Dick Clark, Aaron Spelling and In Memoriam. I thought the Dick Clark tribute was tasteful and not overdone for a change. Say what you will about Barry Manilow but he actually performed on two bad hips for his friend before going under the knife the next day for hip repair.

And, apparently what we didn't see on camera was when Barry Manilow went over to Dick Clark at the end of the tribute to help his old friend off stage and Dick Clark erupted into tears at the sheer emotional overload of it all. My tear ducts couldn't have stood seeing that on camera. Healthy wishes Dick Clark!

I enjoyed the rapport and banter between Jon Stewart and Steve Colbert especially (speaking of Barry Manilow) when Colbert lamented about losing to the music man in his category. I also thought Hugh Laurie and Helen Mirren had a great segment but Laurie is known in his native England as a brilliant comedic talent.

I was saddened by the distance between the Spelling family during the tribute to Aaron Spelling's great contribution to television. Personally, I enjoyed the "Charlie's Angels" reunion. It was nice to see the "old" girls back together again.

I enjoyed Jeremy Piven's emotional acceptance speech but the one I enjoyed the most was the winner who paid tribute to those who he didn't want to thank. That was a hoot and extremely clever!

I got a kick out of Julia Louis-Dreyfus' complete ignorance of why the audience was laughing because she couldn't see the fabulous directing of camerawork to compliment her almost forgetting to thank her husband. The cherry on that sundae was having Debra Messing (after losing to her in the category) being the one who helped her out by yelling a reminder to her from the audience.

Fashion is so subjective but I thought my favorite color, purple, was well-represented on the red carpet. There were so many great fashions so it's hard for me to pick out just one. Helen Mirren finally moved off the worst dressed list to a vision of pure perfection . . . color, style and age-appropriate.

I also enjoyed Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Katherine Heigl, Debra Messing and Evangeline Lilly but I think one of my favorites was Portia de Rossi. I loved the dress, the way it draped, her perfect hair and makeup especially the bright red lip tint.

On the minus side, I normally adore Sandra Oh's sense of style but I thought she was over-accessorized. I agree Candace Bergen was dreadful. Simon Cowell's open shirt to the waist was a bit over the top for the event. However, my worst dressed goes to Vanessa Minnillo. It was dreadful from neck to knee. Unfortunately, once again, I have to put Paula Abdul on that list as well.

There are quite a few awards to this entire Academy so please be patient. I should have all the nominees and winners highlighted by the upcoming weekend. In the meantime, you can see the complete list of winners alone above. See ya at the next awards show!

I try year after year to watch the entire show, but find myself a quarter of the way through the red carpet changing the channel while making gagging noises. I watched about 20 minutes of Ryan Seacrest's interviews and I have one question, "Why didn't he have two black eyes?" He basically called Kyra Sedwick fat and her dress ugly. The look on her face was awesome. I was hoping her husband would come up and go Footloose on him, but alas, no. The uncomfortable feeling from everyone who was within a 3 foot radius of that man (including Jamie Presley) could be felt through my television. Someone fire him.

I really can't say anyone or show was robbed, because unlike the past few years, the nominations were REALLY good. With maybe the exception of the Winter Olympics winning over George Carlin (but I'm partial to George and truly believe he deserves the lifetime achievement award).

I thought Conan was great and it's fun to watch someone as wonderful as Conan really become mainstream. Dido for Steven and John.

I watched a few fashion reviews and can really only comment on what I saw. I loike Portia de Rossi's dress and thought she physically looked better than I've seen her in a while. Is Vanessa Minnillo the young woman who looks like a Brook Burke clone? Blueish dress, plunging neckline, looks like she swallowed two grapefruits whole? I wasn't a fan of Debra Messing's dress with the layered white puffs. But when they said that Mariska had given birth three weeks ago, she took the prize for me. Absolutely beautiful.
