Special Reminder: Wendy's First Of The Month Auditions, begin tomorrow...(It's the 31st in New Zealand you know....) So do go by and pay her a visit. It's loads of fun to play and you get to meet lots of nice fun people, too. And, she gives out a prize at the end of the few days...Pass your curser over her name just above and that will take you right there! Have fun, and I'll see you there!
I've only seen two of those. As you said, Geena Davis was wonderful as the president, but the series lost its focus and it wasn't nearly as enjoyable for me to watch after it stopped focusing on the character drive stories. As for Mariska Hargitay? I can also see why she chose that episode. She was amazing. The story was gripping and kept you guessing. If I were voting, she'd get my vote...lol!
I only watched/watch Six Feet Under out of the shows listed. The Closer has just started to air here but I have yet to catch an episode of it. I will try to this week.
I loved loved SFU though the final episode closing montage was a gem.
Oppps btw thanks for the Audition reminder notice, hope to see lots of you there this month :)
I've seen them all, but my two favorite are Allison Janney and Kyra Sedgewick. I miss the West Wing and I really love The Closer. They are all good, though!
I'd have to vote for Frances Conroy. She was excellent in "Six Feet Under". I was really sorry to see that show end.
Have a wonderful day!

Oh! Oh! I've seen that episode with Mariska, I couldn't tear myself away from that one! She gets my vote, hands down!! Go Mariska!
Hi Lady - thanks for an interesting post!
I just came here to wish you a lovely Sunday and a great week ahead:-)
well I vote for Frances Conroy
But My fiance works on Law & Order SVU(boom) and works with Mariska and of course it would be great if she won :)
I was a huge fan of 6 feet under. Frances Conroy was just outstanding in every episode. She'd get my vote. And besides, Ms. Janney already has a couple of Emmy's, I think.
I was so annoyed with Commander in Chief - such potential, great actress.......wasted. Totally wasted.
SVU is my favorite. I love her. She's so real. Acting is very different from her mothers. Most probably don't remember Jayne Mansfield. I grew up watching old movies. Loved them all. I'm not sure people even know who her mom was.
But I hope she wins.
By a rather large coincidence, Naomi, I finally watched the last two aired episodes of Commander in Chief today. I'd been putting it off for several months.
I've not seen Frances Conroy or Kyra Sedgwick so I can't judge who's the best in this catagory. From what I've heard, it sounds like Conroy's the leader in this group. I've not had HBO in a great many years and it seems I've been missing some great programming. And just to save some money. Sad!
Michele sent me by to see you today, Naomi. Hi!
and ACTION ... auditions post is now up.
Someone this past weekend told me I look a bit like Kyra Sedgewick, I think they were drunk though LOL
Ya know... I honestly don't know HOW you are sitting through ALLLLLL these shows this week! I have SUCH a hard time making it through just a one hour show... sometimes even a 30 minute sit-com! I think somebody ought to give YOU an Emmy for viewing!!! :)
Oh yea... WENDY sent me! (bet you knew that!)
Oh dear -- I don't watch TV, so I have nothing to say! I'll have to come back another time so I can at least attempt to sound intelligent. :P
Wendy directed me here.
Tough decision to make, I have faith that if anyone can, you will make a good call. :)
Well look at me... I'm back again! OOL ~ I am doing GOOD! Hey, that was a knockout number your performed for Miss Wings! I mean really... If I don't get the part, I really hope you do! ;)
As it is now it seems to be tough already. However, I know you'll manage. I know you make good and fair judgments. Good luck to the winners.
Since SFU is the only one I've seen, I'll have to go with Conroy. I miss that show. Grrrrr.
Wow, what a truly difficult decicion to make and such responsibility too. I can see that you have a very difficult job of trying to separate the candidates so good luck with that. On the other hand it must be nice to have to watch such good performaces from talented actresses :-)
I'm a huge fan of Mariska Hargitay.. And I saw that episode.. Several times infact.. Very good episode!
The only one I recognized in this group is the Law and Order one. Never heard of these other people! You see how much TV I watch!!
Gosh, did I ever enjoy reading this. Once again, thanks for sharing the "inside" story with us.
I've watched all the series mentioned, except Six Feet Under. And that sounded very good, so I just might have to see about renting it.
I saw that episode of Law & Order and she played a spectacular part. I also like all the other nominees very much....so I wish you the best on making your decision. You're right...a very tough choice with so many talented actresses!
oh boy... trying to play catchup today!.. but have to tell you I am hooked on The Closer!!! Kyra is fantastic !!! The show had it's first season last year and I have to say I was stuck on it from the first show!! I don't envy you this choice you have to make!!.. (but Kyra would get my vote! lol)
I am fan of Frances Conroy and also I like Kyra Sedgwick!
Here I have the Sky satellite TV and I can see these series, but I prefer "Law & Order: SVU".
Wow. That would be a really tough call. I love Allison Janney, too. What a gifted and appealing performer she is. Tough choice.
Geena Davis just gave a talk to Disney Animation about being more proactive in placing female role models for children. Very inspiring. Animation is a bit of a boy's club, and sometimes the hard and physical comedy is hard to pull of with female characters. But I admire her for raising awareness.
Another tough category.
Wendy directed me here this time. :-)
Darn! You should have posted a spoiler warning, I watched Six Feet Under via Netflix DVD and haven't started the last season yet. :-( As for the others, love Geena Davis in everything I've seen her in. Allison Janey is superb as well. Love Kyra but haven't seen this series. Wow, what a tough decision to make.
Mariska Hargity should win this all the way. She has proved herself worthy of this nomination and deserves the award. She was robbed twice before but this is her year. As an actress she is amazing, captivating the audience. In the episode she chooses she shows so many emotions and portrays them expertly, which makes her a fabulous actress.
Law and order SVU is such a great show and is so underrated. Hopefully next year this show will get some nominations.
