‘Sopranos,’ ‘Raymond’ Aim for Emmys
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ ``The Sopranos″ will try to stop the three-year winning streak of ``The West Wing″ on Sunday night at the Emmy Awards.
``The West Wing″ has never lost in the best drama category; ``The Sopranos″ has never won. ``Six Feet Under,″ which leads with 16 nominations, is also up for best drama. Other competitors for the top drama award are ``CSI″ and ``24.″
Among comedies, ``Everybody Loves Raymond″ and ``Sex and the City″ each have a leading 13 nominations. ``Raymond″ has never won best comedy. It’s up against last year’s winner, ``Friends,″ previous winners ``Sex and the City″ and ``Will and Grace,″ and HBO’s ``Curb Your Enthusiasm.″
The Emmy Awards will be carried by Armed Forces Radio & Television to more than 800 military bases worldwide.
TV academy Chairman Bryce Zabel, in making the announcement this week, said he hoped the show ``will bring a little bit of home″ to servicemen and women.
This year, troops will see both the 55th annual prime-time Emmy Awards, to be held Sunday, and the creative arts Emmys, which were held last weekend to honor technical achievements.
