Julianna talks her favorite Good Wive Scenes with The Daily Beast – READ IT HERE
This morning Primetime Emmy Awards executive producer Don Mischer announced 13 presenters for the upcoming 66th telecast on Monday August 25, and from the bevy of film talent scheduled to appear onstage, one would think it’s a kudo ceremony for cinema. However, it’s just a further indication of how television continues to be in the midst of its second golden age, attracting such marquee names as Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson (both facing off in the drama lead actor category for their work on HBO’s True Detective), Julia Roberts (movie/miniseries supporting actress nominee for The Normal Heart) and Halle Berry (Emmy winner movie/miniseries actress for 2000?s Introducing Dorothy Dandridge). From the music world, there’s Voice hosts Gwen Stefani and Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine presenting. This year’s drama acting nominees Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife) and Kerry Washington (Scandal) are also on deck. And from the comedy sphere, there’s Zooey Deschanel (New Girl), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) and Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) who will also be handing out trophies.
Even the title of Margulies’ series, “The Good Wife,” has become what seems like an intentional distraction from the way her character has evolved over the past five seasons. Not only has Alicia Florrick become a formidably talented, confident lawyer, but she’s also practicing while keeping up appearances with her politician husband, played by Chris Noth. Noth says the fortitude of his onscreen wife is easily traced back to the actress who plays her.
“The strengths of the character are the same strengths that Julianna has, which is an impeccable work ethic,” Noth says. “She’s undaunted by any mountain that she has to climb. You see that in Alicia, that ability to take on what would make other people run for the hills.”
Noth, whose mother was the breadwinner after his father died, says he sees some similarities in Alicia.
“I won’t say my mom defined herself by her work, but in a way, she did. It was more important to her than any man was,” Noth says. “I don’t think that’s the same with Alicia, because we have this complicated relationship, but I think her work is as important to her soul as her family.”
