Last year's Primetime Emmy Awards winner Julianna Margulies is Awol this time around, bypassed to make room for three first-timers in the lead actress category: Viola Davis, Taraji P. Henson and Tatiana Maslany, a trio that not only adds a new wrinkle to that race but also some welcome diversity in a category that has yet to hand an Emmy to a person of color. Scandal's Kerry Washington could have made the race even more historic but sadly did not make the nom cut this… »
Unlike the other three drama acting categories, all the actresses nominated in 2014 for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series were eligible again this year. But four of them didn't make the cut anyway, including the winner. Julianna Margulies won here last year for "The Good Wife," and she was left off along with Lizzy Caplan ("Masters of Sex"), Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey") and Kerry Washington ("Scandal"). Only Claire Danes ("Homeland") and Robin Wright ("House of Cards") return, though Elisabeth Moss ("Mad Men") is also back after sitting last year out. Will one of those three win? If so, they'll have to beat out an epic trio of new competitors. There's Viola Davis, who many thought was a lock to win at the Golden Globes and remains a hot contender for freshman sensation "How to Get Away With Murder." Taraji P. Henson is also high on a lot of lists thanks to her show-stopping role in. »

The rumors have been floating around for years on the alleged personal feud between CBS’ The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi, and the controversy reached a peak after it was learned that the much-hyped final reunion scene between their characters Alicia and Kalinda in Season 6 was filmed with the actresses in separate locations. Series creators Michelle and Robert King spoke with our sister pub TVLine about the flap, saying there was no attempt to dupe… »
The Good Wife is ready to say goodbye to the CGI controversy. The CBS hit's bosses Robert and Michelle King are finally breaking their silence on all the controversy surrounding the final scene between Julianna Margulies' Alicia Florrick and Archie Panjabi's Kalinda Sharma, which was clearly CGIed and has been the source of disappointment among the fanbase since it aired in May. In an interview with TV Line, the Kings said it was never their intent to "dupe" viewers by not having their two female leads actually in the scene together after not sharing a scene in over 50 episodes. "Fans can feel what they want and we respect them because they keep the show on the air, »
Last spring, I shared with you my disappointment/anger that the much-ballyhooed Alicia-Kalinda reunion/farewell scene in The Good Wife‘s Season 6 finale was shot — incredibly —without Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi ever being in the same room together. As I stated then, the behind-the-scenes issues that drove a wedge between the two Emmy-winning actresses was less of interest to me than the impact the apparent falling-out had on a show that I love.

At least this wouldn’t be the year of #EmmysSoWhite. (Memo to Oscars: The pressure is on.)
This year’s slate of Emmy nominees offered up diversity across the acting categories. But that’s not to say TV has achieved anything close to parity. Far from it.
Witness the lead actress in a comedy race, which is shockingly pale. Whither Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”), and Constance Wu (“Fresh Off the Boat”)? At least in the supporting race, Niecy Nash (“Getting On”) made the cut in a lineup that stretched to eight nominees.
Only one black actress has ever won for comedy: Isabel Sanford took home the trophy in 1981 for “The Jeffersons.” There’s been a shutout for actresses of color in that race since Phylicia Rashad in 1986 for “The Cosby Show.” That’s 29 looooong years. There’s nothing funny about that.

“As long as we’re monetizing our content… we still win at the end.” That’s the message that CBS Entertainment chair Nina Tassler had for reporters Monday at the annual Television Critics Assn. press tour in Beverly Hills.
As network executives grapple with an ever more competitive marketplace, Tassler said networks owning shows is key to their success, because it gives them control and flexibility in on-demand licensing and international sales that have become so crucial to profitability. “One of the things that’s key to our business model is our prime position,” she said. “Ownership puts us in a prime position. You go into making the best shows you can. That helps you monetize.”
Citing the additional viewers CBS gains for shows like “The Good Wife” and “Scorpion” on iTunes and Svod, Tassler said that reflects growth that they’re getting paid for. “We want to be wherever »
