Christine Baranski “knows how to nail a closeup,” remarks Baranski’s “The Good Fight” costar Sarah Steele in CBS Television Studios’ Emmy FYC video (watch above). The two-minute clip package reminds Emmy voters of some of Baranski’s greatest moments from “The Good Fight” Season 2 while intermixing accolades from her cast. “She’s also hilariously funny,” continues Steele, who plays fan-favorite assistant Marissa Gold.
Shockingly, Baranski hasn’t won an Emmy Award in over two decades since prevailing for “Cybill” in 1995 as Best Comedy Supporting Actress. This year she contends for the second time as Best Drama Actress for CBS All Access’s “The Good Fight,” a spinoff of “The Good Wife” that brings her poised and confident lawyer character Diane Lockhart front and center. Baranski previously earned Emmy bids for the first six seasons of the original CBS drama, but she was snubbed last year for Season 1 of the streaming-only spinoff.
Delroy Lindo, who portrays Diane’s legal partner Adrian Boseman, praises in the video that “Christine is extremely centered and prepared in her work.”
The show’s co-creators/executive producers Robert King and Michelle King also have nothing but raves for their leading lady. “Christine Baranski is an incredibly accomplished actor,” notes Michelle.
Nyambi Nyambi, who plays investigator Jay Dispersia, confesses, “Christine is amazing. I learn every time I watch her work. It’s a masterclass for me. She is a joy to be around. That laugh is just such an infectious laugh.”
“I love watching great actors work,” admits actor Michael Boatman, who revisits his “The Good Wife” lawyer Julius Cain on the spinoff series. “She’s just very dedicated and always present.”
