At Emmys, It's Mob Rule For Final Time

Last season's lowest-rated network was the biggest winner at Sunday night's 59th annual Emmy Awards bash, while last season's top-rated network took only a single trophy. NBC took home seven awards, including best comedy series -- 30 Rock. HBO's The Sopranos won for best drama, best writing and best directing but failed to nab honors for the series' top stars. ABC won six awards, including a Best Actress in a Drama award to Sally Fields for Brothers & Sisters in the show's first year. America Ferrera won the comparable award in comedy for Ugly Betty, while James Spader won for Best Actor in a Drama (Boston Legal). Ricky Gervais took the comedy acting award for HBO's Extras. The Daily Show With Jon Stewart on Comedy Central was named best variety, music, or comedy series. CBS won just one Emmy, with its The Amazing Race taking the award for best reality-competition program (beating American Idol, among other shows in the category; Idol, the highest-rated weekly show, has never won an Emmy). Fox, which broadcast Sunday night's ceremonies, went home empty handed.
