This Tuesday, we’ll talk with Christine Baranski about her Emmy-nominated role as Diane Lockhart in the CBS legal drama “The Good Wife.” Join us for our live chat on August 5 at 2.15 p.m. PT/5.15 p.m. ET on Gold Derby’s home page.
This is Baranski’s fifth consecutive Emmy nomination for “The Good Wife” and her 11th in total. She won for her supporting work on the comedy series “Cybill” back in 1995. She was nominated a further three times for that role and was also nominated once for her guest work on “Frasier” and twice more recently for her guest work on “The Big Bang Theory.”
We will talk about Baranski’s impressive Emmy history, and take her back to that first win almost two decades ago. We will also focus on her fifth straight bid for “The Good Wife,” for what many have heralded as her best work to date on the buzzed-about fifth season of the show.
She submitted “The Last Call” to the Emmy judging panel. In this episode, Diane grieves over the loss of her law partner and best friend Will Gardner (Best Drama Supporting Actor nominee Josh Charles) alongside her former colleague and now competitor Alicia Florrick (Best Drama Actress nominee Julianna Margulies).
