Marshall won the Outstanding Directing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program Emmy for "Tony Bennett: An American Classic." That program, which aired on NBC in November, also picked up Emmys for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special and one for singer Bennett himself for Individual Performance, Variety or Music Program.
Helen Mirren, the stage and screen star who won an Academy Award for her performance as Queen Elizabeth II in "The Queen," won her latest Emmy for her work on "Prime Suspect: The Final Act." That PBS program also won Emmys for Philip Martin (Directing, Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special) and Frank Deasy (Writing, Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special).
Veteran actor James Duvall won his first Emmy Award for his performance in the Emmy-winning miniseries "Broken Trail," and Sally Field — who made her Broadway debut in Edward Albee's The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia — won the Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy for her role as Nora Walker on "Brothers & Sisters," the TV series created by playwright Jon Robin Baitz. Other top acting prizes went to James Spader in "Boston Legal" (Lead Actor, Drama Series); America Ferrera in "Ugly Betty" (Lead Actress, Comedy Series); and Ricky Gervais in "Extras" (Lead Actor, Comedy Series).
"30 Rock" was named Outstanding Comedy Series. The Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series went to HBO's "The Sopranos," which ended its acclaimed run in June.
