"Those who sent me prayers and well wishes," said the actress, "I want you to know, I could really feel it."

Actors commonly demur that filming a sex scene is just another day at the office, citing comforts like professional costars and respectful camera crews.
But for award-winning actress Julianna Margulies, the oral sex scene written for her and Chris Noth on The Good Wife elicited a much more dramatic (and, um, believable) response.
"The first thing that went through my mind is, 'Oh dear God, how are we going to film this?' Then, 'Oh God, my father's going to watch the show,' " the actress, 45, tells More in its April cover story.

The Emmy Awards are almost here, and now it's time to tell us which show deserves to win outstanding drama series.
The nominees are a varied bunch:
There's fan-favorite football drama Friday Night Lights, which follows the stories unfolding inside a small Texas community; and last year's winner, the '60s advertising saga Mad Men, which stars January Jones as sullen housewife Betty Draper.
Then there's Dexter, the story of America's favorite serial killer; Boardwalk Empire about the life of Nucky Thompson, politician and gangster in Prohibition-era Atlantic City.
The Good Wife, which stars outstanding actress nominee Julianna Margulies, follows one woman's career and love life in the wake of her politician husband's high-profile sex scandal.
And Game of Thrones, HBO's well-received fantasy drama based on the best-selling book series A Song of Fire and Ice, features a cast of feuding characters, including exiled princess Daenerys Targaryen played by Emilia Clarke.
It's going to be a tough race when the 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards air live from Los Angeles's Nokia Theatre on Fox Sept. 18.
