Emmys writers & directors: Helmer’s POV – Allen Coulter

One nomination for "The Sopranos" in 2000

Inspirations: “Certainly ‘ER’ and ‘NYPD Blue’ in their early days and, of course, ‘Twin Peaks.'”

Influences: “The usual suspects, Roman Polanski, Hitchcock and Fellini.”

Moments: “I’d say there were a couple of ‘Sopranos’ sequences I was very pleased with. The scene where the priest gives Carmela communion. And I was very happy with the segment in which Richie Aprile is killed. I also really liked an episode of ‘Sex and the City’ I did called ‘Freak Show.’ Liked the whole thing.
