The site is no longer being updated. Life took over and sadly I can't keep up with everything. I'll do my best to keep the media center updated though, at least with screencaps!

Interviews - Press - Eye on Emmy: Julianna Margulies on The Good Wife's Perfect Union of Story and Performance

Eye on Emmy: Julianna Margulies on The Good Wife's Perfect Union of Story and Performance
TVLINE | The sequence with Will, in the hotel, was so perfect in its slight awkwardness. When Alicia says, “I think it would look like an exceptional moment…” That’s not the stuff of greeting cards.
[Laughs] That was so much fun to film because A) [series cocreator] Robert King was directing, and B) we had been waiting two seasons to have this [hook-up] not be a Hallmark moment, but be real. Josh Charles and I have known each other for years, and that allows for the discomfort to happen. Alicia has to take a minute before the “exceptional moment” line because the right, appropriate words never fall off her tongue. When you hear that, and then see that little hint of doubt when the little kid has pressed all the buttons in the elevator, you think: Maybe this is a sign? I loved how [the elevator sequence] was shot, because you got to see what we’re thinking. Television is filled with so many words for the sake of talking, and what I love about our show is the silences.

TVLINE | There’s debate about whether Alicia is in the right – she’s not divorced from Peter, and Will’s sort of with Tammy. Your take?
Oh, I think the girl deserves a little loving, man. It’s been a long time coming, and she needs to be held. [Laughs] There is definitely one camp saying, “She’s still married to Peter and she cheated on him.” Wow, really? You think she cheated on Peter? Wow. Her world has been turned upside-down and she packed him up and shipped him out. Wouldn’t you be happy for her to get a little something? I don’t know if I’m “pro” her being with Will, but I’m “pro” her being with Will for the last episode, for sure. I just hope that she’ll be able to separate an exceptional moment from a complicated life.
