'West Wing' Rubs Out 'Sopranos' at the Emmys
Show Wins Record Nine Awards

By BETH HARRIS

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 11) - One by one, the cast and creators of
''The West Wing'' ascended to the stage Sunday night to collect their
statuettes.

Richard Schiff, who plays the grim aide Toby Ziegler, and Allison Janney,
the White House's tough press secretary, winners of the supporting actor
Emmys. Thomas Schlamme, winner for dramatic directing.

And most of all, Aaron Sorkin - creator of the acclaimed show about
 a president who believes in doing what's right.

''I'm the happiest guy in the world,'' said Sorkin, who won a writing Emmy
(with Rick Cleveland) and the prized award for best drama series.

The nine Emmys for ''The West Wing'' broke the previous record of
eight in a single season, set by ''ER'' and ''Hill Street Blues'' in their
first years.
Four of the ''West Wing'' Emmys came in technical categories.
