Emmy nominations morning is a very exciting morning for those who learn that they’re competing in TV’s Big Show.

Without exaggerating, Martha Plimpton can say that she’s done it all. Movies? Check. (Everything from Oscar bait like Running on Empty to cult classics like The Goonies.) Television? Check. (A 2002 guest appearance on Law & Order: SVU earned her an Emmy nod.) Theater? Check. (She’s been nominated for a Tony three times.) She’s even modeled (for Calvin Klein, in the 1980s) and sung (at Lincoln Center, no less, in her own one-woman show). But it’s her sweetly tart portrayal of baby-faced grandma Virginia Chance on the freshman Fox series Raising Hope that may be winning Plimpton the most enthusiastic audience of her career — as well as, just maybe, this year’s Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

When it comes to the Emmy Awards, there’s no counting out 30 Rock’s Tina Fey. Ever. In 50 years, she’ll be Betty White. But this year’s Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series competition may be all about Showtime and its three show-stopping leading ladies. Will the Academy prescribe a consecutive win for Nurse Jackie’s Edie Falco, or will Toni Collette grab a second statue to go with Tara’s multiple personalities? Or could they and The Big C’s Laura Linney split the pay cable vote, leaving an opening for someone new, like Raising Hope’s Martha Plimpton? REVIEW CONTENDERS & VOTE

Good Wife Scoop On Kalinda's Erotically 'Charged' Reunion, Other Guest Stars

TGWpanjabi_DW

Business will once again (perhaps) merge with pleasure for The Good Wife‘s Kalinda (Emmy winner Archie Panjabi) when Jill Flint (Royal Pains) reprises her role of FBI agent Lana Delaney in this season’s 14th episode.

The catalyst for the latest visit from Lana, who last was seen in the Season 1 finale getting close with Kalinda behind a self-storage room door? “Kalinda’s finding that she’s losing a resource in the state’s attorney office in Cary, so she goes to a higher friend,” previews series cocreator Robert King.

Pumping Lana for dirt, though, does not come without complications. READ MORE
