This article presents the author Eeric J. Smith's comments on the Emmy awards. This year, the sitcom field is saying goodbye to several long-running and well-respected shows like Sex and the City, Friends and Frasier. I knew the exit of that trio was sure to play a big role in voters' choices, I'd already picked the comedies I thought would get recognized on Emmy night. Cable had a lone representative in this category, Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. Best actor in a comedy was perhaps the Emmy's most emotional category, NBC's Kelsey Grammer and Matt LeBlanc represented their shows for the last time, and the late John Ritter from ABC's 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter also got an Emmy nod.
