THE EMMYS

Sometimes it's hard not to gloat. Mary-Louise Parker was thankful for her supporting actress win, even if it meant the 16th loss for Angela Lansbury

September 20, 2004

First and foremost, I'd like to thank ... me!

Mary-Louise Parker, who won for outstanding supporting actress in a miniseries for "Angels in America," said she wasn't upset about extending Angela Lansbury's Emmy losing streak. Lansbury -- the Susan Lucci of the prime-time Emmys -- had been nominated for her 16th time: as outstanding supporting actress in a movie or miniseries, this time, for "The Blackwater Lightship."

"God bless Angela Lansbury," Parker said. "I wouldn't have been bitter if she had won -- but I wasn't exactly rooting for her." Meryl Streep also took a moment to toot her own horn. She won the Emmy for outstanding actress in a miniseries for "Angels in America." "There are some days when I, myself, think I'm overrated," Streep said, "but not today."
