In 2004, the series won four Emmys�, including Drama Series; Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Michael Imperioli); Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Drea de Matteo); and Writing for a Drama Series (Terence Winter, "Long Term Parking"). The show has also won five Golden Globe Awards, including the award in the Best Television Series - Drama category in 2000.

THE SOPRANOS is an HBO Brad Grey Television production in association with HBO Original Programming. The series was created by David Chase. Executive Producers are Brad Grey and David Chase. HBO and The Sopranos are service marks of Home Box Office, Inc.
