Glenn Close wins best actress Emmy for "Damages"

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Five-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close won the Emmy Award as best actress in a television drama on Sunday for playing a ruthless trial lawyer on the FX cable network series “Damages.”

Close prevailed over last year’s winner, Sally Field of “Brothers & Sisters,” as well as three actresses playing cops — Mariska Hargitay of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” Holly Hunter of “Saving Grace” and Kyra Sedgwick of “The Closer.”

Close earned an Emmy nomination in 2005 for portraying a tough police captain on the FX crime series “The Shield.”
