Christine Baranski Speaks about Good Wife Being Ignored at the Emmys

July 11, 2014 Julianna Margulies, Christine Baranski, Josh Charles

In some strange twist of fate The Good Wife did not get nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Drama Series category or in the Drama Writing category. Its stars—Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles and Christine Baranski— picked up nominations, and despite having a season heralded by critics and fans alike, The Good Wife was snubbed.

"If you really look back on season five and just watch the whole season unfold, there's such artistry to it. The court cases are interesting; the personal relationships are so interesting and adult. The office politics—people can really relate to it because it's very much a grown-up world," Baranski told E! News. "I'm always saying this: This is a show that doesn't rely on sensationalism or violence, rape, sex, beheadings and people being in strange, weird, aberrational—particularly women. I love that the women in this show—we're not victims, we're not arch-bitches, we're adult characters living in a tough moral…in a new world where there's just moral ambiguity and it gets harder and harder to see what's the right and the wrong thing. I always like to call this show shades of gray. There's a real skill involved in writing a show that has that complexity and sophistication."

So where's the nomination? Ask just about anybody who's seen more than one episode of The Good Wife and they'll agree with Baranski's sentiments. With her 12th nomination overall and fifth for playing Diane Lockhart, Baranski is an awards veteran. While The Good Wife's snub stings, Baranski is finding some solace in the reaction its caused in the media and fans.
