Edie Falco Takes Home Her Fourth Emmy

This is Falco's fourth Emmy. She previously won three Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series awards for her run on 'The Sopranos.' With her comedy prize, she becomes the third person ever (after Carroll O'Connor and Robert Young) -- and the first woman -- to win both comedy and drama awards.

'Nurse Jackie' was picked up for a third season in March and just finished airing its second season, but Falco's award was for the first season, which aired too late last summer to be eligible for the 2009 Emmys.

Fellow Showtime actress Toni Collette won in the same category last year for 'The United States of Tara.'

This is why the Emmy's can't be taken seriously.

Anyone who's watched this season of Nurse Jackie knows how poorly written and performed it is.

Just my opinion. Toni Collette should've gotten the Emmy for her second season instead.

I couldn't agree more; moreover, why is Nurse Jackie considered a comedy?
