Emmys: Wolf’s happy morning

Woundedknee15How happy was Dick Wolf this morning?

“It’s like being given pure oxygen,” he said from his home in Seal Harbor, Maine, where he learned the news that his HBO telepic “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” led the Emmy pack this year with a whopping 17 noms.

Wolf had been hopeful that the period telepic that he exec produced  with longtime pal Tom Thayer would nab a few Emmy bids, but at his most optimistic he didn’t expect it to lead the pack, not by a long shot. He shared the news by phone with Thayer, who’s up in Vancouver shooting Sci Fi Channel’s “The Andromeda Strain” (featuring “Law & Order” alumnus Benjamin Bratt.)

“I want to bottle this feeling so I could save it and take it out every now and then when I need it,” Wolf enthused. “When you work this hard with dedicated people for so long to bring something like this to the screen, it’s just an enormous tribute to everyone who worked hard on it.”
