The actors, who both won 2003 Emmys — Falco for "The Sopranos" and Shalhoub for "Monk" — will announce the 56th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations at 8:30 AM ET. "Good Morning America," "The Early Show" and "The Today Show" will cover the nominations, and the E! Entertainment Network is scheduled to devote a full hour of coverage for this year's nominations. Best known for her Emmy-winning work as Carmela Soprano on "The Sopranos," Edie Falco made her Broadway debut in Side Man, which she also played on the London stage. Her other theatrical credits include the hit revival of Terrence McNally's Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune as well as The Vagina Monologues, Shooting Gallery, The Way and A Fabulous Beast.
Tony Shalhoub has appeared on Broadway in The Odd Couple, The Heidi Chronicles and Conversations with My Father, earning a Tony nomination for his work in the latter. Last season, he received an Emmy Award for his work in "Monk."
The 56th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles Sept. 19. ABC-TV will broadcast the event live. For more information visit www.emmys.com.
