Emmy For Simpsons Star

THE SIMPSONS star HANK AZARIA has won his fourth EMMY award.

The actor, who plays bartender MOE, police chief WIGGUM and shop keeper APU in the show, received his prize ahead of the actual Emmy ceremony as honours for animation work were announced in advance.

Azaria, who has won two previous Emmys for his Simpsons performances, is also in the running for an Emmy for his role as a guest star on the sitcom FRIENDS.

The actor, who appeared recently in London in stage play SEXUAL PERVERSITY IN CHICAGO, also won an Emmy for a 1999 television drama, TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, in which he starred alongside legend JACK LEMMON.

The primetime Emmy awards will be handed out in a ceremony at the SHRINE AUDITORIUM in Los Angeles on 21 September (03).

Comedy drama SIX FEET UNDER leads the Emmy awards race, with 16 nominations.
