Emmy takes up 'Lost' cause

September 2005
Hollywood Reporter -- International Edition;9/20/2005, Vol. 391 Issue 1, p86
The article reports on the 57th annual Primetime Emmy Awards which held recently at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California. ABC's freshman sensations "Desperate Housewives" and "Lost" led the award function, however, it was the veteran CBS sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond" that enjoyed one last laugh. "Raymond" beat "Housewives" to win comedy series, one of three awards it took home to cap its ninth and final season. But ABC's dynamic duo topped the field with six wins apiece, and other rookie winners emerged, including NBC's "Medium" and Fox's "House." The most decorated program of the evening was the premium cable channel's original movie "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers," which won nine awards.
