Cherry 'Bummed' About Not Being Nominated For Emmy
DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES creator MARC CHERRY is 'bummed' his hit TV show was snubbed by the Emmy awards and won't be attending the ceremony next month (AUG06) - because he wasn't even invited. The show won 15 Emmys last year (05) in its first season, but only received one nomination this year for ALFRE WOODARD as Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. He refused to confirm rumours the rest of the cast, including leading ladies TERI HATCHER, MARCIA CROSS, NICOLLETTE SHERIDAN and EVA LONGORIA, would also be skipping the show because of the lack of nominations. Cherry says, "I would assume that FELICITY (HUFFMAN) will go to present an award because it's a tradition for the previous winner to present that award. "But I don't know for sure. I haven't asked the girls if they're going." He admits he was upset about not receiving more nominations after the hoopla surrounding the wins last year, saying, "Am I a little bummed out? Sure. "To me, the shocker was LOST (not being nominated for Outstanding Drama after winning last year). I thought that was odd to the point of 'What the heck is going on with the Academy?'" Cherry insists he'd rather stay home than go through the stress of sitting through the ceremony. He adds, "I was very honoured to be nominated last year, but to sit there and lose twice...was excruciating. Then you go to the parties and everyone comes up to you and says, 'You were robbed.' "So I was like, 'This is the most annoying evening of my life.' I will be happy to sit at home and watch other writers go through that!"
