The old and the new win top honors at the Emmy awards.

"The Sopranos" takes the Emmy for best dramatic series. This was "The Sopranos"' final season on HBO. Creator David Chase says one of the best things about the show was working with the great cast.

The new show "30 Rock" wins the Emmy for best comedy series. Creator and star Tina Fey thanked the show's "dozens and dozens of viewers." She also thanked the NBC executives who decided to stick with the program despite low ratings.

James Spader wins the Emmy for best actor in a drama series for "Boston Legal." He joked that he felt like he'd just stolen a pile of money from the mob, since he was sitting near the stars of "The Sopranos."

Sally Field was honored as best actress in a drama for "Brothers and Sisters." But her speech was bleeped out at one point by the Fox censors for a God-related swear word. The censors also bleeped presenter Ray Romano and "Grey's Anatomy" supporting actress winner Katherine Heigl.
