Emmy ‘Loves’ TV Tribemembers

When Brad Garrett accepted his best supporting actor Emmy on Sunday, Sept. 22, the irony was thick as a Sicilian pizza -- or a deli sandwich. The 6-foot-8-inch Jewish actor plays Ray Romano's sullen cop brother, Robert, on the CBS hit "Everybody Loves Raymond," featuring the sitcom world's favorite Italian American family. But Garrett (born Gerstenfeld), a rabbi's son, drew huge laughs when he joked, "I just hope that this award breaks down the door for Jewish people who are trying to get into showbusiness."
