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.

I am trying to imagine a marble bust of Julia Louis-Dreyfus. This bust rests atop a marble pedestal, and the pedestal sits in a gleaming marble hall.
Can't do it. The hair is too chic, for one thing, and that's hard to sculpt. So, I'll spell it out: Veep, the new HBO comedy in which Louis-Dreyfus plays a vice president of very little brain, puts her firmly in the pantheon of TV's great comedic actresses.
Yes, yes, yes, Louis-Dreyfus already proved she was fantastic playing Seinfeld's Elaine, the woman who invented the urban sombrero. But that was an ensemble role. And she was lovely, relaxed and charming as a divorced mom on her mellow sitcom vehicle The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Ian Abercrombie, the British character actor who found fame later in life by playing Elaine's boss Mr. Pitt on Seinfeld, has died at 77.
Abercrombie passed away Thursday of complications from kidney failure, having been diagnosed with lymphoma, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Having started his career as a dancer, Abercrombie spent four decades acting on the stage, screen and TV, before his seven episodes on Seinfeld changed his life.

No matter how faithfully you follow your diet, there's always one food that makes you weak. The New Adventures of Old Christine star Julia Louis-Dreyfus confessed to Shape that she'll break her diet for bacon. "In fact, I don't keep bacon in my house – that would be way too tempting," she said. Do you crumble for chocolate? Are milkshakes your mortal enemy? What's your weakness?

More soup for her!
Following in the footsteps of the successful Sex and the City movie, Julia Louise-Dreyfus says she'd love to reprise her role as Seinfeld's Elaine and do a film version of the hit 90's sitcom.
"You get the financing together and I'll work on the script," Louis-Dreyfus told reporters at the 7th Annual TV Land awards on Sunday, set to air April 26.
Until then, Louis-Dreyfus, 48, is happy to reunite with her Seinfeld cast mates for several episodes in the upcoming season of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm this fall.
"It was wonderful," she says, of working with Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards again. "It was like we never left to be honest with you – so that part of it was quite surreal."

Like many people, actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus admits she struggles when it comes to maintaining her weight.
"I have to work at not being fat," Louis-Dreyfus, 48, tells Shape in its April edition. "I'm always trying different things to see what sticks."
Whether it's running for four miles at a park or jumping on the elliptical machine at home, the New Adventures of Old Christine star says finding balance between her indulgences and discipline helps her stay slim – and sane.

Par for the course, some winners spoke too long onstage and got the hook – in the form of exit music – after winning their Emmys on Sunday night, but backstage at the Shrine Auditorium the stars could take their time having their say or even lighting up.

REGISTERED: Tori Spelling, 30, and actor Charlie Shanian, due to be married on July 4, are registered at the cooking store Williams Sonoma, reports the New York Post, adding that it had no idea the once-virginal Donna Martin of "Beverly Hills, 90210" was so domestic. Among the items sought by the couple in their registry (despite the fact that Spelling's dad, kazillionaire TV producer Aaron Spelling, could probably afford to buy the entire store chain): mixing bowls and muffin and cake pans.
