If you ask why I am crying, it's because Madeleine Stowe, star of ABC's Revenge, is not among the Emmy nominees. In fact, I am crying just as she would: My eyes are ringed with big, ready-to-drop tears of wrath and sorrow.
Otherwise, the latest batch of nominees is pretty satisfying.
It's great to see Lena Dunham and her fantastic HBO comedy Girls up for best actress and show. (But nothing for the supporting cast?) Dunham, who plays a smart, funny, self-absorbed young writer, is running against her comic antithesis: Zooey Deschanel of FOX's New Girl, on which she plays (and plays very well) a cupcake.

Only the accountants at Ernst & Young – the official vote-counters for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences – know who will take home an Emmy during Sunday's ceremony.
Until then it's anyone's guess. But we can tell you which Emmy nominees are getting the most buzz among 170.89 million Facebook users in the U.S.
Based on the number of "Likes" and the number of mentions on the social networking site, it seems Sofia Vergara is a fan favorite. The Modern Family star leads over Kristen Wiig, Mayim Bialik, Julie Bowen, Merritt Wever and Kathryn Joosten for the supporting comedy actress category.

Has Peggy Olson found herself a new man?
Elisabeth Moss – who plays Olson on the hit AMC series Mad Men – stepped out with new beau Adam Arkapaw, an Australian cinematographer, according to a New York Post report. The two were spotted together at last week's Sydney Film Festival, where Moss made several surprise appearances.
"They looked very much an item and very happy," a source told the Post about the couple.

Jessica Paré appeared only at the end of Mad Men's fourth season as Megan, but her character certainly kept busy in the hiatus, marrying Jon Hamm's Don Draper.
By the end of the season 5 premiere, the Canadian actress had created a sensation – on TV and on the Internet.
Clad in a black mini-dress, the sexy Paré, 29, belted out a killer performance of "Zou Bisou Bisou" for Don's birthday in an episode of AMC's hit show. Suddenly, Google lit up with searches for the French song.
Here are five things to know about Mad Men's newest lady on the block:

When Mad Men's season 4 wrapped up nearly a year and a half ago, Don Draper (Jon Hamm) was on the precipice of a major life change. He had proposed to his young secretary, Megan (Jessica Paré) after taking her on a trip to Disneyland with his children.
As in seasons past, Sunday night's premiere episode has been shrouded in secrecy – with nary a plot point revealed. (Not even the year in which the season is set!)
So, if you haven't seen the season 5 premiere yet, stop reading! There are spoilers ahead …

About seven weeks after the birth of her son, Xander, January Jones was back to work in the role that made her both admired and pitied, the former Betty Draper, now the re-married Betty Francis, on AMC's Mad Men.
With her baby still "really little," says the actress, 34, returning to the set "was tough with the long days. But work made it really comfortable for me."
As it was, "Every season I have a little kind of first day of school nerves. The first episode I'm always finding my way back into my character's shoes. … But then after a few days, I'm able to fall pretty easily back into her, and find her voice and her body language and everything that I do for her," says Jones.

You wouldn't mess with Don Draper around the office at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. And you shouldn't mess with Jon Hamm, the man behind those suits and ties, on the Mad Men set.
But his costars thought about it.
John Slattery, who plays troubled executive Roger Sterling, and Elisabeth Moss, who plays secretary-turned-ad copywriter Peggy Olson on the AMC series – whose season 5 premiere is Sunday – attempted to play a prank on Hamm when he was making his directorial debut for the show's April 1 episode.

AMC's Mad Men is back Sunday after an absence of more than a year, and its maniacally intense fans are anticipating what new developments are in the pipeline at the chilled offices of 1960s ad agency Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. Mad Men is too subtle to resort to cliffhangers – people here live or die according to what account gets signed over a business lunch lubricated with drinks – but season 4 ended with everyone poised on the brink of ... something.
Something maybe good, possibly bad. Maybe neither. It's that kind of show. Ominous, but incrementally so.
Before Sunday's premiere, here's a refresher as to where the show's main characters were when we left them:
