Baranski of CBS's 'The Good Wife': Emmys Race 'Not a Level Playing Field' TVLine

"The Good Wife' star Christine Baranski tells TVLine.com that the show's snub in the Emmys race has to do with the proliferation of big-budget cable dramas.

"It’s really a bummer," she said, referring to the show’s failure to receive a nomination in the best drama series category. "Why is our show even having to compete with these gigantic, lavishly produced cable shows that only do 10 episodes a year? It’s not a level playing field at all."

The drama series category includes nominees such as HBO’s "Boardwalk Empire" and "Game of Thrones," as well as PBS's "Downton Abbey” and Showtime’s “Homeland.”

Baranski herself is nominated for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series for CBS’s “The Good Wife.”

The actress said she's hoping to return to "The Big Bang Theory" for at least one episode. She plays the mother of Leonard on the show.
