    I really liked that when she won her Emmy J Marguiles mentioned about the writers and the 22 episodes…….22 episodes of quality is much more difficult than say 10 or 12 or even 7 (Mad Men)……not sure if she meant it as a “dig” but nevertheless a point well taken!

    I hope she did because she was proving a point that network dramas aren’t dead. The Good Wife had 22 amazing episodes this season. Downton Abbey, Homeland, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, True Detective, Game of Thrones, and so many others make like less than 13 a year.

    Margulies was throwing a bit of shade there, but the sentiment behind it was spot on.

    Christine Baranski said last year already that she would like to address that matter if she wins (maybe that contributes to her losses [kidding]). I can see their point and she has right to use her win to appreciate the work of the writers. As I said in other thread, I love the fact that she specifically singled out the one who wrote her submission. Very refreshing.

    I love how she paused after this comment, expecting a big round of applause and the audience didn’t play along.

    First their ridiculous campaign and now this. Enough is enough. We get it, you work more on the show and producing 22 episodes is more difficult but stop it. You’re very well compensated, extra episodes bring extra money, you have job security and a stable environment. The actors on shows like “Mad Men”, “Downton Abbey” and “Game of Thrones” have to go find other jobs for the rest of the year.

    By the way, this was the most rehearsed and forced speech of the night. Sorry but this woman rubs me the wrong way and I used to enjoy her work on “ER”.

    Queen Julianna’s acceptance speech was one of my favorites of the night lol. Besides the great cable shade, I really dug that she gave a shout out to the director of her episode submission. That’s very rare to see happen here, and I’d like to think that we helped contribute in a small way to nominees’ increased tape awareness over the years.

    You’d probably go ballistic if someone posted that “cute” gif in response to a comment you made. You’ve been a major fan over the years but that wasn’t called for just because I insulted your “queen”. Whatever.

    Julianna is spot on…we simply cannot ignore the fact that writing and producing 22 episodes is very different than only seven-ten episodes in a season.  I’m not saying one is better or worse, but comparing 22 episodes of The Good Wife to only eight episodes of Breaking Bad just seems like apples and oranges.  again, Breaking Bad was a masterpiece this year, but The Good wife was almost as good.  But the demands on each show are quite different.

    The audience, probably network people, actually responded quite well to that comment. It was the moment when she mentioned Robert and Michelle King as well as Jim McKay that had awkward small applause kinda interrupting her speech.

    This ’22 episodes a year’ comment has been going around for quite some time, and it’s going to come up again even when the show is no longer on the Emmy’s radar.

    I don’t like Julianna as a person. I have the same feelings towards Claire Danes. They’re both great actresses but huge self-entitled cunts.

    People need to get over this 22 episode sh*t. Besides,TGW did not have 22 “amazing” episodes. It had about three great episodes, six good ones and a bunch of middling ones. It was a decent season of television with some amazing moments, but it wasn’t truly great. Quite a few cable and network dramas with better seasons than TGW had have been snubbed in series over the years. And this is from someone who thought this show was the second best drama of the season. Thinking it deserves a series nod is one thing, but CBS, Margulies, fans, etc need to move on from this “22 episodes” platform, because it’s coming off both harpy and mis-informed.

    I loved her speech. Point well made. It was my second favorite speech of the night; after Ryan Murphy’s empassioned speech.

    Julianna is the only interesting winner in the drama side
    I love her speech, she appeared to be surprised and the speech seems kinda rehearsed though
    btw the shade is spot on indeed! 
    she looked like a huge bitch, but actually she seemed nice
    and I just want to make out with her husband! *drool*

    I have 2 perspectives on Julianna’s speech. Yeah it was a calculated move, but it’s something TGW crew/publicists has been making all through the campaign. 22 episodes is hard to do. It gets a little bit whiny at a certain point. On the other side of the coin, it’s pretty clear her win was really a series win, so I think it is totally appropriate to make a speech that’s more of a series win than her individual win.

    I think CBS should just let The Good Wife do fewer episodes. I don’t think the Emmys should start making categories like “ok, you do 22 episodes so you go in this category, you do 13 or less so you go in this category”.  Because what other show that produces 22 episodes a season is actually worthy of a nomination on level with Breaking Bad, True Detective, Downton Abbey, Mad Men, Game Of Thones, and Homeland? None.

    The Good Wife is an anomoly and unfortunately they got snubbed. It sucks, but live with it. 3 of your actors got nominated in major categories. That’s awesome.
