Well get over your bad self; you're about to hear it again!
No one is more deserving of a chance at the podium than Margulies, and not just because the series was criminally overlooked for outstanding drama series.

With the Emmy nominations in, such fan favorites as Orange Is the New Black and Game of Thrones felt the love – with 12 and 19 nominations, respectively.
Others, meanwhile, got left out in the cold.
CBS's The Good Wife may have just wrapped its most extraordinary season to date, but it found itself snubbed in the best drama category. Newer critical favorites, like NBC's The Blacklist and FX's The Americans, were ignored, too.
