Emmy Promotes Perry
Primetime Emmy ballots were delivered to voters in the TV industry over the weekend, and Variety notes that, for the first time, the entire cast of “Friends” does not appear in the supporting category. Because of this season’s beefed-up Chandler and Monica storyline, Matthew Perry has been promoted to lead actor status. Elsewhere on the ballot, Courteney Cox is now listed under her married name, Arquette, which pushes her to the No. 2 spot in the alphabetically listed supporting actress category . . . right behind costar Jennifer Aniston.
