This article focuses on the television industry. The author says that in late summer, there's no more active sport in Hollywood than "guess the winners." Home Box Office must always climb uphill to get the dramatic, series trophy. Each of the broadcast networks has more voters, plus their shows receive most of the votes cast by the studios that produced them. The Emmy chat rooms were abuzz with criticisms of the weak episode submitted on behalf of the director James Gandofini. The TV program "Angels in America," has the benefit of a great director, a creative play, the dynamics of death and dying, and two of the nation's most honored lead actors.
