The Channel 6 brass doesn't think it's news, but the story refuses to die. The fourth annual local Emmy Awards are just over a week away, and once again, the area's dominant station will not be represented. The Emmys "place our people in competition with one another, and we've just avoided doing that," says WPVI-TV general manager Rick Spinner of the station's persistent refusal to recognize the local chapter of the National Academy of TV Arts and Sciences (NATAS), sponsor of the awards.

* EMMY AWARDS. 8 p.m. tomorrow, Fox. LOS ANGELES - There's more than Hollywood ego on the line at tomorrow's 63rd prime-time Emmys. After disappointing performances by a pair of major trophy fests this year, the TV ceremony could prove an awards season reboot. For producer Mark Burnett, the successful reality TV czar ("Survivor," "The Apprentice") who is tackling his first big awards show, it's a chance to play hero or risk being the goat. He can't take any cues from the double thud that marred the 2011 season.

CBS's Picket Fences scored a stunning sweep of the top dramatic series prizes last night, as television honored itself in subdued festivities at the 45th annual prime-time Emmy Awards. "Like somebody else is going to honor us," said Jay Leno, one of a crowd of celebrities who toed the mark and kept to the timetable in ceremonies that actually ended early. Fences scored one of the biggest surprises in recent Emmy history. It won as drama series, and its two leads, Tom Skerritt and Kathy Baker, won as actor and actress in a dramatic series.

The 44th annual Emmy Awards show had a tough time reaching the heights last night, slogging along for 3 1/2 hours with few laughs and finding no show or network on which to heap its praises. CBS's Murphy Brown was named best comedy of the 1991-92 season, and no one was surprised to hear star Candice Bergen's name called for her prize as best actress in a comedy series. "I would like to thank the vice president . . . and members of the cultural elite," Bergen said, referring to controversy raised by Vice President Quayle's criticism of Brown's having a baby out of wedlock.

Just when you think network television couldn't do any more to erode its audience share, it turns around and does something monumentally stupid, even by its own short-sighted standards. Now comes last week's announcement from CBS that on the night of Sept. 13, while NBC is televising the Emmy Awards, it will offer the broadcast premiere of Martin Scorsese's 1990 Mafia film "GoodFellas. " Why is this such a dumb move? Because it's against the Emmys, that's why. The annual awards show by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is supposed to celebrate TV's best, and to give viewers the opportunity to share in that celebration.

With Sunday night's 40th annual Emmy Awards, television formally entered the postmodern age. Fascinatingly self-conscious - at times even self- parodying - the Emmy Awards finally reflected what many of the award- winning shows were already telling their audiences: that television no longer merely reflects the culture, it is the culture. Postmodern shows such as thirtysomething, The Wonder Years, St. Elsewhere and A Year in the Life all have something in common besides the fact that they won major awards.

We're happy, OK? Two Emmy nominations, for costumes (so deserved, Terry Dresbach!) and for production design (good on, Jon Gary Steele!) for "Outlander" Season 2 on Starz. But even with seven positions instead of five for Best Drama Series, "Outlander" was still shut out in that category when the 2016 Emmy nominations were announced today. As were stars Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies. (Insert Gaelic expletives here.) It's not about snubs, which would imply some deliberate thought.

Is it that time already? The nominations for the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced July 14. Each year, we remind ourselves that the Emmys don't matter all that much - but that doesn't mean we don't like to see our favorites get an attaboy (or girl) from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Here, we present you with some names we hope Emmy voters didn't forget to include on their ballots, and we give some props to people and shows for achievements that they don't make awards for. Best Drama Now that Mad Men is over, it's time for Emmy voters to give FX's The Americans all the awards.

Has prime time TV finally accepted black actresses? Last week's Emmy Awards suggests it has: This year, black women were nominated for 10 Emmys, nine of which were dramatic. Three performers won, including How to Get Away with Murder star Viola Davis, who became the first black woman to win the lead actress in a drama prize. Davis' win capped a good night: Uzo Aduba won best supporting actress for her role as the hilarious, sensitive, tongue-tied Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren on Netflix's Orange is the New Black , and Regina King picked up an award for her role as the devout Aliyah Shadeed on ABC's American Crime . A growing number of dramas now offer strong roles for women of color, including Fox's Empire , Sleepy Hollow , and Minority Report ; ABC's Scandal and Mistresses ; Starz's Power ; DirectTV's Rogue , CBS's Extant ; FX's American Horror Story ; and BET's Being Mary Jane and Book of Negroes . It's hardly an avalanche, nut it's certainly a nice start.

WHEN TRACY MORGAN took the stage at the Emmy Awards on Sunday night, it was as if Astronaut Jones had safely returned to Earth to the cheers and confetti of NASA Mission Control. Morgan, recovering from a New Jersey Turnpike car accident that killed his friend James McNair , made a surprise appearance to present the night's final award to the best TV drama. Variety , however, reported that Morgan's feel-good speech ticked off attorney David Jay Glassman , who's representing Kevin Roper , the Walmart trucker charged in the crash.

Police want Miley's pal Poor Miley Cyrus ! Even her goodwill gestures backfire! Seems the homeless man Miley brought to the VMAs Sunday to accept the best video of the year prize on her behalf is wanted by the police. Miley came to the glitzy gala accessorized with one Jesse Helt as a way to highlight the plight of homelessness. The Statesman Journal of Salem, Ore., says there's a warrant out for Helt's arrest for multiple parole violations in Oregon. Helt was paroled after a 2010 conviction for an attempted break-in at a flat in Salem.

STOP ME if you've heard this one before: Jim Parsons, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jessica Lange, Ty Burrell, Stephen Colbert, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, "Modern Family," "Breaking Bad" and "The Amazing Race" all went home with Emmys last night. What? You thought NBC was going to waste an original episode of anything on a Monday night in late August? Early - because NBC didn't want to compete with the MTV VMAs and doesn't like to interfere with Sunday night football - and often more like a rerun than a live show, the 66th annual Emmy Awards was nevertheless a fine night out for host Seth Meyers.

Before I detail my picks for Sunday night's Emmy Awards, you should know that my Emmy-handicapping skills are unrivaled. No one who watches TV for a living - and I mean no one - is able to consistently predict the results as erroneously as I am. But I am reliable. So if you're an actor I pick to win in your category (congrats, Louis C.K.), don't bother memorizing that acceptance speech. And away we go. . . . Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. Right off the bat, I have issues here.
