At Showtime's post-Emmy party at Morton's restaurant, a casually-dressed Hank Azaria was just explaining how he chose tennis over the awards show when a blaze of flash bulbs went off at the entrance. "God, it's Barbra Streisand. That's pretty cool," exclaimed the actor, who stars in Showtime's new fall series Huff.

The arrival of Streisand and husband James Brolin upped the wattage at what until then had been a fairly low-key affair reflecting Showtime's failure to win any of the evening's Emmys, including for nominee Brolin, who played Ronald Reagan in the cable network's controversial movie The Reagans.

Actress Rhona Mitra - glamorous in what she dubbed a "Sid Vicious green," strapless, lace dress - had come over from the Fox network party to check out the pounding rhythms. She was still elated by the dramatic acting win for James Spader, her co-star on The Practice and the upcoming spinoff, Boston Legal. "I felt so close because of this sort of metamorphosis we've gone through together," she said, referring to the transition their characters have made from one series to the next. "I felt as proud as a mother, sister, daughter, child. He worked so hard, it was wonderful he got it."
