And one more note on the EMMYs... (nominations announced on the 17th). I'm hearing from Low Resolution (who heard it from Gold Derby) that Mary McDonnell's towering work on Battlestar Galactica is in the finalist Best Actress list. I'd almost rather not know that. It's like a carrot dangling in front of me. The EMMY voters are a cruel undiscerning lot and they'll let my desperate bunny-self starve. I just know it. Her competitition: Patricia Arquette, "Medium", Glenn Close, "Damages", Minnie Driver, "The Riches", Sally Field, "Brothers and Sisters", Mariska Hargitay, "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit", Holly Hunter, "Saving Grace", Elisabeth Moss, "Mad Men", Kyra Sedgwick, "The Closer" and Jeanne Tripplehorn, "Big Love". The ideal roster would surely read: Field, Moss, McDonnell and Tripplehorn... and either Hunter or Driver. But I don't suspect that the nominees will come close to matching those womanly riches.
