Cabler HBO dominates with a record 109 noms

See nomineesThis article was updated at 9:57 p.m.

HBO buried the competition as never before in this year’s Emmy nominations, with “Six Feet Under” officially surpassing “The Sopranos” as the cabler’s kudos king.

After last year’s near-revolutionary shakeup of several categories, voters returned to playing it safe: Comedy contenders were the same as 2002, while the only shift in the drama competish saw “The Sopranos” replace “Law & Order.”

“Six Feet Under” again led the pack with 16 noms, down from last year’s 23 but still one ahead of NBC’s “The West Wing” (noms include a final writing shout-out for departing scribe Aaron Sorkin).

The tally for “Six” was particularly impressive — and a bit of a shocker — since this year was the first the skein faced competish from stablemate “The Sopranos,” which was ineligible for consideration in 2002.

Overall, HBO scored a massive 109 noms, blowing away all other competitors and setting a record for its most ever total noms as the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced nominees for the 55th annual Emmy Awards on Thursday. HBO’s triple-digit tally also ranks as the most mentions for a broadcast or cable outlet since cablers entered Emmy competish 15 years ago; cabler’s previous record was 94 in 2001.

NBC — with 77 noms, down from 89 last year — led the broadcast pack, followed by CBS (59), Fox (37) and ABC (33).

Cabler piles it on

HBO has four skeins with double-digit nom tallies, with “The Sopranos” and “Sex and the City” scoring 13 each, tied with CBS’ “Everybody Loves Raymond” (which is co-produced by HBO). Other double-digit nominees include NBC’s “Will & Grace” and the TNT telepic “Door to Door” with a dozen; “Alias” and “Friends,” 11; and Fox’s “24″ and HBO telepic “Live from Baghdad,” 10.

Biggest eye-opener of the day was Larry David’s improv-style HBO laffer “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which quintupled its nom count to 10 — including David’s first-ever nom for lead actor in a comedy. His TV wife, Cheryl Hines, scored her first-ever Emmy mention, while the skein has a virtual lock on the comedy directing category: It snagged four of five nominations.

“The truth is, we always look at nominations as a real indication of how our programming is being received by our peers,” HBO chairman-CEO Chris Albrecht said. “It’s incredible to get this kind of validation for such a broad cross-section of our stuff. And we all know that the world is a better place when Larry David can be nominated in the best actor category.”

“Six” exec producer and creative force Alan Ball was unavailable for comment, but exec producer Bob Greenblatt — who now serves as prexy of Showtime — said he and the HBO show’s other producers were glad to see it still recognized in its third season.

“There’s some extraordinary work going on at every level of that show,” he said.

“Curb” exec producer Robert Weide, who himself snagged a directing nom for the instant classic “Krazee-Eyez Killa” episode, said he only found out Wednesday that noms were being announced Thursday.

Work its own reward

“When we’re working on the show, the last thing we’re thinking of is awards or nominations,” he said during a break in production on “Curb’s” fourth season. “The real reward is being able to work on something that’s unique and that people seem to enjoy. When these things happen, it’s icing on the cake.”

Weide said David, who shuns interviews, is very happy and proud of the show’s noms but likely “embarrassed and apologetic” about his own mention for acting.

Though hardly chopped liver, 13 noms for “The Sopranos” ranks as the weakest showing ever for the mob drama, which had previously never earned fewer than 18 (its first-season tally). In addition to “Six Feet Under,” “Sopranos” and “West Wing,” the other contenders for outstanding drama are “24″ and the Eye’s “CSI.”

By contrast, 13 noms rep the best tally for the cabler’s “Sex and the City” and the first time the skein has ranked as the most-nommed comedy (tied with “Raymond”). Also facing off in the yuks category: “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Raymond,” “Friends,” “Sex” and “Will & Grace.”

It was a heartbreaking morning for record-seekers, as two Emmy vets were denied precedent-setting nomination glory.

NBC’s “Law & Order” failed to get what would have been its 12th consecutive nom for drama, a feat that would have allowed it to surpass “MASH” and “Cheers.” And “Frasier’s” Kelsey Grammer will not compete in the comedy thesp category for the first time in nearly a decade (though “Girlfriends,” the sitcom he produces for UPN, did snag a cinematography nom).

End of streak

“L&O” creator Dick Wolf admitted that it was a day of disappointments but preferred to look forward. “It is an honor to be nominated once, and to be nominated 11 times in a row is a testament to the incredible work that the writers, actors and everyone on the team has done and will hopefully continue to do for years to come,” he said in a prepared statement.

Surprisingly, two critical darlings — HBO’s “The Wire” and NBC’s “Boomtown” — got virtually no love from the Academy. “Boomtown” earned just one nom — for its theme song; “Wire” was shut out.

Voters continued to ignore NBC’s much-praised “Scrubs,” while critic-friendly web the WB had just two noms, continuing a tradition of being overlooked.

ABC’s landmark drama “NYPD Blue,” once an Emmy powerhouse, was completely shut out this season, while NBC’s “ER,” another onetime contender, earned just four noms.

And syndication continues to fade as a force. With firstrun scripted syndie fare a dying breed, Emmy voters overlooked the category completely. (Syndie gabfests are honored by the Gotham-based NATAS.)

On a more upbeat note, “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” — which will mark its 10th anniversary in September — snagged its first-ever nom in the variety, music or comedy series category. Peacock latenighter will compete against “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart,” “Late Show With David Letterman,” “Saturday Night Live” and “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.”

“The timing is sweet, because we’ve been preparing for this 10th anniversary special and just realizing what we’ve achieved in 10 years,” O’Brien said. “To get the best show nod with a 12:30 show is hard, so it’s nice we got in there. I intend to use this to boost my political career and my run for governor of California. This Emmy nomination is so impressive and powerful, it will help overlook the fact that I don’t live there.”

Basic cable also continued its climb to kudos glory.

While FX’s “The Shield” didn’t snag a nom for drama, star Michael Chiklis — who won drama actor last year — will again compete. And USA’s “Monk” got some Emmy love, with voters expanding the comedy actor category to six nominees, including lead Tony Shalhoub.

They’re back!

In the thesp categories, voters also seemed bent on ignoring fresh faces. While last year, seven of 10 lead drama acting nominees were first-timers, all those in this year’s crop have been nominated before.

Chiklis will again face off against Peter Krause (“Six Feet Under”), Kiefer Sutherland (“24″) and Martin Sheen (“West Wing”). James Gandolfini, absent last year, will be gunning for his third win.

In the outstanding actress category, Frances Conroy (“Six Feet Under”), Jennifer Garner (“Alias”) and Allison Janney (“West Wing”) all battled it out in 2002, while Edie Falco (“Sopranos”) and Marg Helgenberger (“CSI”) are back after one- and two-year breaks, respectively.

Notably absent: Amy Brenneman, who had racked up three consecutive noms for “Judging Amy.” Rachel Griffiths (“Six Feet Under”), who had been nominated as lead actress last year, moves to the supporting category this season.

On the comedy side, things aren’t much better: The only newbies are Shalhoub and David (though David has a slew of writing and producing noms to his credit). Thesps will compete against returning contenders Matt LeBlanc (“Friends”), Bernie Mac (“Bernie Mac”), Eric McCormack (“Will & Grace”) and Ray Romano (“Raymond”).

In addition to Grammer, Matthew Perry will sit out the actors race this year after scoring his first-ever nom in 2002. But he’s still a contender, up for outstanding guest actor for his dramatic turn on “West Wing.”

Distaff lead comedy noms are identical to those of 2002, with last year’s winner, Jennifer Aniston (“Friends”), again facing Patricia Heaton (“Raymond”), Jane Kaczmarek (“Malcolm in the Middle”), Debra Messing (“Will & Grace”) and Sarah Jessica Parker (“Sex and the City”).

Meanwhile, as the number of miniseries in primetime continued to decline, so did the number of minis nominated. Just three were nominated for an Emmy, down from last year’s four: CBS’ “Hitler: The Rise of Evil,” A&E’s “Napoleon” and Sci Fi’s “Steven Spielberg Presents Taken.” That marks back-to-back noms for Spielberg, who exec produced one of last year’s entries, “Band of Brothers.”

Unfavorable comparison

An Emmy win would particularly vindicate “Hitler” exec producer Ed Gernon, who was forced to leave his exec job at Alliance Atlantis after making controversial statements about how the mini paralleled current events.

“Hitler” and “Napoleon” scored seven total noms, while “Taken” took six. (In comparison, “Band of Brothers” scored 19 last year.)

Among telepics, all five outstanding made-for-TV movie noms went to cable projects, including three for HBO.

TNT’s William H. Macy starrer “Door to Door” led with 12 noms, including outstanding made-for-TV movie. Others up for the top movie award are Lifetime’s “Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story” and HBO’s “Live From Baghdad,” “My House in Umbria” and “Normal.”

Outstanding mini/movie actor noms include Macy as well as Paul Newman (Showtime’s “Our Town”), James Woods (USA’s “Rudy: The Rudy Giuliani Story”), Tom Wilkinson (HBO’s “Normal”) and Brad Garrett (CBS’ “Gleason”).

Garrett scored a rare double dip, having also landed a supporting comedy actor nom for his day job on “Everybody Loves Raymond.” Nom was Wilkinson’s first, while Woods won in the category twice before in 1987 and 1989.

Bigscreen thesps continued to dominate the lead actress in a mini/movie category: Jessica Lange (“Normal”), Helen Mirren (Showtime’s “Tennesee Williams’ The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone”), Maggie Smith (“My House in Umbria”) and Thora Birch (“Homeless to Harvard”).

It’s Birch’s first nom, while the other four have all visited this category before, with Mirren winning in 1996 and 1999.

Notable noms in other categories:

  • “The Amazing Race,” “American Idol” and “Survivor” will compete against the CBS spec “AFI’s 100 Years … 100 Passions” and NBC’s “100 Years of Hope and Humor” in the newly created reality/competition categoryn Score one for the comedy underdogs: Despite critical drubbings, CBS’ “Yes, Dear” and “Becker” got noms (both in the guest acting categories).

  • In alternative nonfiction program, “Antiques Roadshow,” “Cirque du Soleil: Fire Within” and “Trading Spaces” will compete against MTV’s “The Osbournes” and HBO’s “Da Ali G Show.”

  • Fox’s “The Simpsons” and “Futurama” will compete against kidvid faves “As Told by Ginger,” “Kim Possible” and “SpongeBob SquarePants” in the half-hour animated series category; notables absent from competish are “King of the Hill” and “South Park.”

  • The variety, music or comedy special category will feature a clash of musical styles, with concerts specs headlined by Bruce Springsteen and Cher battling each other, as well as Robin Williams’ HBO spec “Live on Broadway” and the 75th annual Oscarcast.
