Sopranos and Sex and the City STARS Snub Emmys
Stars from TV network HBO’s top shows – THE SOPRANOS and SEX AND THE CITY will not attend this year’s prestigious EMMY AWARDS. Actors such as JAMES GANDOLFINI and SARAH JESSICA PARKER do not feel like celebrating at the 7 October event – which will take place less than a month after the terrorist attacks in New York. The mobster drama and the female comedy are up for 32 gongs at the ACADEMY OF TELEVISION ARTS AND SCIENCES ceremony. THE WEST WING star MARTIN SHEEN is reportedly contemplating whether or not to attend this year’s more somber affair. His spokeswoman HEIDI SHAEFFER explains Sheen, “has made no decision yet. A lot of people have concern about a celebration, and security has definitely become a factor.” The show – to be presented by comedian ELLEN DEGENERES – was originally slated for September 16th.
