Doris Robert Wins 4th and Last Emmy


Doris Roberts, who passes away at the age of 90 on April 17, 2016, is shown here accepting her fourth and final Emmy Award for her portrayal of the meddling mother of Ray Romano’s character, Ray Barone. Episode after episode, year after year, in this hit comedy, Roberts has captured the essence of a meddling mother and mother in law to Ray and his frustrated wife in the series.
Roberts’ acceptance speech in this video clip of the 2005 Emmy Awards shows her professionalism and grace. It is mentioned that this was the ninth and final season of the show “Everybody Loves Raymond.” She portrayed a loving but constantly interfering mother who lives across the street from her son, Ray and his wife, Debra, played by Patricia Heaton. Roberts’ comic timing was complemented by her TV husband, Peter Boyle, who played Frank Barone.
Based loosely on Ray Romano’s experiences and comedy, “Everybody Loves Raymond” hit home for so many people on so many episodes for nine full years, from the 1996-2005 television season. Long in syndication, her comedy as well as the rest of this great lineup will be enjoyed by future generations for many years to come.
