The Sopranos is an award-winning American television drama series created by David Chase and originally broadcast on the HBO network. The show revolves around New Jersey mafia boss Tony Soprano and the difficulties he faces as he tries to balance the often conflicting requirements of his home life and the criminal organization he heads. The series stars, among others, James Gandolfini, Lorraine Bracco, Edie Falco, and Michael Imperioli.
The Sopranos has been nominated for most Outstanding Drama Series every year of its run including 2007, its final season. James Gandolfini and Edie Falco have also been nominated every year but one and have also been nominated in 2007. After being nominated for and losing the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series in 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2003 (losing the first time to The Practice,then the latter three to The West Wing), The Sopranos finally won the award in 2004, and again in 2007, becoming the first and only cable series to win the award. It also joined Sex and the City as the only cable show to pick up a best series Emmy. In 2003, after picking up Emmys for Writing, Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Joe Pantoliano), Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Edie Falco), and Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Gandolfini), many experts thought the show would be a shoo-in for Drama Series. The show has dominated the writing categories at the Emmys, picking up 17 nominations over five seasons and winning the award four times. It is also a perennial nominee at the Golden Globes (winning the Best Drama Series in 2000) and the major guild awards (Directors, Producers, Writers, and Actors).
The Sopranos has also won at least one Emmy Award for Acting in every season with the exception of the year 2006. Edie Falco and James Gandolfini have each been nominated five times for the leading roles in the show, each winning a total of three awards. Joe Pantoliano won an Emmy (for Supporting Actor) in 2003, and Michael Imperioli and Drea de Matteo also won Emmys in 2004 for their supporting roles on the show. Other actors who have received Emmy nominations for the series include Lorraine Bracco (in the Lead Actress and Supporting Actress categories), Dominic Chianese, Nancy Marchand, Aida Turturro, Steve Buscemi (who was also nominated for directing the Pine Barrens episode), John Heard and Annabella Sciorra.
On September 16th, 2007, the show received the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series for the second time, becoming the first drama show in history to win the award in its final broadcasting season. While the show was shut out of all acting awards, Alan Taylor also won Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series for the episode "Kennedy and Heidi", and David Chase was awarded Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series for the final episode, "Made in America".
