The show, which is in its fourth series, picked up best television comedy.

Co-stars Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Parker were on hand at the ceremony in Beverly Hills to see Golden Globe trophies added to their 2001 Emmy Award.

Six Feet Under, written by American Beauty Oscar winner Alan Ball, won best television drama and a best supporting actress gong for Rachel Griffiths.

War epic

The series, centred around a dysfunctional family running a funeral home, beat off stiff competition from the usual suspects such as The Sopranos and The West Wing.

The best mini-series award went to the critically acclaimed war epic Band of Brothers.
