Kelly scores Quality nods

'Practice' makes perfect for org

The kudos keep rolling in for David E. Kelley.

Just over a week after pulling an unprecedented double in the Emmys with nominations for best drama and best comedy, Kelley-created shows “The Practice” and “Ally McBeal” have been named best-quality drama and comedy by the grass-roots group Viewers for Quality Television (VQT).

“The Practice” snared the biggest judgment with three Q awards, while “Ally McBeal” and “Frasier” both received two. Shows with one award each include “The X-Files,” “NYPD Blue,” “ER,” “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Nothing Sacred.”

Amongst networks, ABC led the pack with five, while Fox took four, NBC three and CBS one.

ABC’s controversial drama “Nothing Sacred,” which was ignored in all major Emmy categories and has been cut from the Alphabet web after one season, is the winner of the Founder’s Award, given by VQT founder Dorothy Swanson to a series that ‘has made a significant contribution to quality television without receiving due recognition.”

Q awards are also given to actors and actresses for lead and supporting roles in comedies and dramas. Notable choices were “The Practice’s” Steve Harris for supporting actor in a drama and Doris Roberts of “Everybody Loves Raymond” for supporting actress in a comedy, both of whom were denied Emmy nominations.

A ceremony will be held in Burbank Oct. 3.
