Sting, Osbournes Win at Emmys

"Tribute to Heroes" also garners an award

By |

Ozzy Osbourne and family were omnipresent at last night's Emmy Awards ceremony, popping up in a show-opening skit and as presenters. One week ago, The Osbournes also snapped up an Emmy for Outstanding Non-fiction Program (Reality) at the Creative Emmys.

The show opened with a skit in which host Conan O'Brien awoke in the family's home, late for the Emmy program, and got a ride, from Osbourne, to the wrong venue. The family's bulldog Lola also shredded O'Brien's tuxedo. The Osbournes reappeared to present the award for Outstanding Directing in a Variety, Music or Comedy program.

Sting also took home an Emmy for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program for his A&E special, Sting in Tuscany . . . All This Time. The Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special Award had one winner shared among all major networks: America: A Tribute to Heroes, which featured performances by Bruce Springsteen, the Dixie Chicks, Mariah Carey, Neil Young and others.
