Denis Leary, Ray Romano awarded
Denis Leary was in good spirits at the TV Academy Honors soiree May 2 at the Beverly Hills Hotel, even though he’s not exactly a kudos magnet.“I don’t ever win awards. We were 0-8 at the Emmys,” said Leary, who was on hand with “Rescue Me” co-creator Peter Tolan. “Only Michael J. Fox won (as a guest star), and that doesn’t count.” The TV Academy Honors recognize programs that have a “conscience” and provide content that can inspire or change lives. The gravitas of the affair, however, didn’t stop the laughs from coming.
