Female friendships are few and far between on television. And good female friendships are even harder to find. So when BuzzFeed brought up the point that The Good Wife’s Alicia and Kalinda haven’t appeared in the same room together in more than 30 episodes (that is, a season and a half), I immediately felt as if the show were doing a injustice to women—and specifically, to the friendship that these two characters had formed.
But upon further thought, I realized that just the opposite was happening.
Alicia and Kalinda aren’t like most female friends on TV. Unlike »

A&E has cancelled its western drama "Longmire" after three seasons. Robert Taylor and Katee Sackhoff starred in the drama which was the No. 1 scripted show in A&E's history. It will now be shopped to other networks.

“Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.“

She worried she would never find another TV series role as powerful as the one she held in the Bartlet administration for seven seasons. She was nervous about being typecast as a specific breed of alpha-female. And she fretted that reality TV was going to take over network TV entirely, turning high-end scripted shows into endangered species.
Boy, was she wrong.
Janney, 54, is the embodiment of the extraordinary range of opportunities available to established actors in television’s ever-widening programming landscape. She took home two Emmys (Nos. 5 and 6 on her mantle) this month for her work in two very different series: the CBS comedy “Mom” and the Showtime period drama “Masters of Sex.”

When the recent news broke that Alexa Vega will play a recurring character on the upcoming season of country music soap Nashville, now seemed like a perfect time to revisit the original Spy Kids. I tend to picture Vega as she appeared in the Robert Rodriguez film, but she has grown much since then. She's even married... twice.
In 2001, she and co-star Daryl Sabara (whose first role was as Murphy's baby on '90s cultural touchstone, Murphy Brown) played Carmen and Juni Cortez, troubled private-school kids. Their parents Ingrid (Carla Gugino, Karen Sisco, Sucker Punch) and Gregorio (Antonio Banderas) are consultants who have not yet admitted to the children that they used to be secret agents (who met cute at the Hotel Belen, better known as the Omni Hotel downtown).

Julianna Margulies schooled everyone on how to travel with an Emmy when she caught a flight out of La on Tuesday. The Good Wife actress was spotted walking into Lax (along with her superhot husband) while carrying her big award in her hand. We guess it makes sense that Julianna wouldn't want to check her award, but we sure hope that she doesn't place her Emmy in the overhead compartment - turbulence could cause some serious damage! Keep scrolling for shots of a beaming Julianna carrying her award, and don't forget to relive her surprised winning face when she snagged the award on Monday night. »
One of the standout moments from this year’s Emmys was undeniably the taped segment in which comedian Billy Eichner and host Seth Meyers ran around the streets of New York quizzing (or simply yelling at) people about the awards. And it wouldn’t have happened if Eichner had not decided to send a “ballsy” (his word) email to Meyers’ producer, Mike Shoemaker.But thanks to Eichner’s initiative, the evening had a refreshing dose of absurdity. In the segment, which mimicked the structure of the recurring games on Eichner’s Billy on the Street, Eichner called out the Academy’s snubbing of Tatiana Maslany, »

Julianna Margulies had a big night at the Emmys on Monday - she picked up the award for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for her work on The Good Wife! It was her second time accepting the honor, since she also took home the statue in 2011. Julianna had her husband, Keith Lieberthal, by her side for the whole event; the two hit the red carpet together, cozied up in the audience, and celebrated after the show at the Governors Ball and the HBO bash. You may have done a double take when you saw her husband, whose strikingly good looks have definitely turned heads at Hollywood events before. He is actually a lawyer and is six years younger than 48-year-old Julianna. The couple got married in 2007 after meeting at a friend's party and have a 6-year-old son named Kieran. Julianna thanked both Keith and Kieran in her acceptance speech on Monday, »
