    The LA Times emmy roundtable is up on youtube. Aaron Paul, Jon Hamm, Juliana Marguiles, Claire Danes, and Michael C. Hall. Its okay, Marguiles does most of the talking, and she doesn’t come off quite so well in this interview either.

    Drama actress was a good panel this year. Shorter than last year’s, but last year’s was a larger panel. This group was lively and seemed to enjoy each other’s company. Most of the talk was dominated by either Julianna Margulies, Claire Danes, or Kyra Sedgwick, but I found myself hanging on just about everything that Mireille Enos said for some reason. She might not have talked often, but there was this quiet intensity about her when she did speak that was hard to miss. Emmy Rossum was much more open and engaging than I thought she’d be. Usually the newbie on the panel kind of fades into the background and lets the vets carry most of the discussion (Kelly MacDonald is a good example of that from last year), but not Miss Rossum. Good for her! (And yes, I’d love to see her nominated this year, and I think I could somehow suffer through the media’s lame “Emmy has an Emmy” puns if that were to happen for her). Margulies’s comments weren’t as negative as I thought they’d be, and she does have a lot of insightful things to say about the industry. But last year’s panel, yikes. Then there’s January Jones. It’s like she has this veneer surrounding her at all times whenever she’s talking about something, or the way she sits in her chair and how her hair hangs down her face. She’s guarded and oddly captivating at the same time. I think I liked her most here when she talked about “Fat Betty” and was defending all of that nonsense. Hearing both Jones and Margulies talk about how Matthew Weiner operates on set with his precious scripts, it helps confirm what he must be like to work with in general (but if it ain’t broke . . . ). I’m looking forward to seeing rest of the panels. Comedy actress was a howler last year, so more of the same this year, plz.

    You were right… Margulies doesn’t come off too well at all. She sounds very condescending, and towards her show’s fans and viewers at that. I loved what Michael C. Hall had to say in response to her going on about show runners immediately responding to fan reactions.

    ^There’s a few other videos on there too, but Aaron Paul is very quiet indeed.

    Margulies comes off much worse in the LA Times panel and, truthfully, I am a little insulted by her comments.  

    Like the multitude of people who are so invested in their sports teams – brackets and fantasy teams and appointment viewing of games – watching and commenting on television series is a hobby I take much pleasure in, as I know most members here at Gold Derby do as well.  The implication that I must have far too much free time on my hands if I am invested in the series and want to write about and discuss it amongst other fans is… bizarre.  What actor doesn’t want their fans to be invested in their show and enjoy it so much that it inspires great discussions?    

    I so much enjoy talking about The Good Wife here and with some of my close friends; I never suggest or urge the writers and creators of the series to alter their direction to appease the viewers whims in what they want to see from the series.  Some may be very vocal about what they like or dislike about the series, but regardless, passion about a series is better than passiveness where one merely tunes in for the hour and tunes out.

    I love watching these videos. But can they please get some new people in there? We’ve seen Margulies, Sedgwick, Jones, and Danes (although not for ‘Homeland’…. so that can slide) in these before. I get that it’s all part of campaigning for an Emmy but seriously, give some new people a chance. Or mix it up and put men with women or comedy & drama together or something and make it a little more interesting. 

    Also:
    -How many times have we heard Julianna Margulies talk about how tough ‘The Good Wife’ schedule is? Many. (love her, but doesn’t anyone have something new to ask her?)

    -The short clips are fine, but you really get a sense of these ladies by watching the entire video. If you can find the time, do it.

    -Good for Emmy Rossum for gettng in there and arguing a little and standing her ground. She’s impressive.

    -Love both Enos and Jones laid back approach.

    -Danes does seem much more down to earth these days.

    -Sedgwick, eh. Who cares at this point?

    I just watched that and wow. I too am rather put off by Margulies. Like you mention, no one is asking the writers to take the advice of fans. The fact that people are so invested in the show and even watching it/discussing it is a good thing. I quite liked Jon Hamm’s response to her. Are “her” writers so affected by the comments of fans like “lurker09” on Television Without Pity? Seriously? If so, then that says more about them. I think she really needs an attitude check. While we’re at it, how about just leaving her off the panel next year. Too bad the interview wasn’t longer so that others could’ve had more of a chance to speak.

    Jon Hamm is so cool and I also quite like Claire Danes’ demeanor these days.

    I’m not a fan of this pic. Kyra, Emmy, January and Claire seem to have gotten a raw deal here. The colours of their dresses make them blend into the background.

    Completely agree. Enos looks stunning, which is a huge compliment because she has stated she doesn’t get into the fashion/red-carpet tide like others, yet here she is blowing all these other ladies off the page. Margulies looks great as always. I cannot believe they have Danes in that frock…Seriously?

    Margulies is getting a lot of heat and I get that she’s bringing it on herself. But she really does give a great performance every single episode and has totally revived her once-dead career post-ER. She just needs to not talk so much. I also agree that she doesn’t at all come off like this in one-on-one interviews in magazines or the red carpet, and she also has really heartfelt acceptance speeches (“Thanks, CBS, for believing in the 10 o’clock drama.” … “Thanks to my parents who’ve always liked all my work…Well, except Snakes on a Plane.” … just to a name a few that come to mind).

    Thanks for the links to both the LA Times and Hollywood Reporter interviews. I enjoyed watching both of them!

    For the most part, I didn’t have an issue with Margulies’ comments. You want arrogance? Watch the conversation that Ed O’Neill and Rob Lowe had about being “exploited” from last year’s roundtable discussions. Barf.

    In fact, I appreciated her comment about having to make her bosses understand that she has other needs and commitments, and that her time would be better served if they made things easier for her. In an ideal world, no one (male or female, rich or poor) SHOULD feel guilty for expressing the concerns and limitations when it comes to balancing work and one’s personal life. One can have a billion dollars in their checking account and I gaurantee that sleep deprivation and stress still sucks. (Fact: I do not have a billion dollars in any account) I think she made a good point when she said that while the show is viewed as an ensemble, it’s still called “The Good WIFE.”  She’s the star. The show rides or dies with her. 

    She’s paid her dues. She’s allowed to demand things.

    ALL that said, her comment about people posting online rubbed me the wrong way, for sure. And it’s not because I’m currently posting online. (okay, maybe 5% of it is…just kidding, it’s at least 25%)

    Television, films, theater, literature…it’s all good, but it only becomes great when it becomes a conversation. In the grand scheme of things, the internet is very new, but it’s not new enough to brush off by saying “Don’t you have something better to do with your time?” I understand her sentiment about not wanting the writers to be influenced by viewers, and I actually agree with her for the most part, but to dismiss the opinions of fans and to insult them for having opinions? That’s rude and insulting. The fact that water cooler talk is now done online should have zero influence on the writers, but if it does, that’s on the writers. She’s lucky people care enough to talk about it.

    In related news, Claire Danes was wonderful — she’s definitely a lot warmer than she used to be. Same thing goes for January Jones. I appreciated her insight into Matt Weiner’s brain. (I’m convinced he’s a saner version of Dan Harmon)

    Jon Hamm was hilarious and insightful as always. Depsite his ridiculous good looks, my fantasy is that once Mad Men ends, he’ll star in a sitcom. He’s more funny than he is attractive. And he’s very attractive.
