Emmy Nominations: PEOPLE TV Critic's Take

Originally posted 09/22/2012 06:40PM

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?)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel may have shared great chemistry in 2009's (500) Days of Summer, but their romance only exists on-screen.

Despite fans' wishes for the two to become an item, the costars are just friends, Gordon-Levitt, 31, insists in the September issue of Playboy .

"We've been friends for 10 years. She loves movies, music and art, and she's incredibly knowledgeable about that stuff," he says.

"She's turned me on to so many movies and so much good music. It's fun just so have conversations, watch movies with her."

There's a new girl coming to Broadway.

Cast by the country icon herself, Zooey Deschanel will play Loretta Lynn in an upcoming stage musical about the singer's life, Coal Miner's Daughter, producers for the Broadway-bound production have announced.

Lynn personally introduced Deschanel Thursday night on the stage of Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium during Opry Country Classics. The two then sang "Coal Miner's Daughter."

"It's a long way from Butcher Holler to Broadway in New York City. I never imagined I'd see Coal Miner's Daughter on a movie screen, and now I can't believe it's going to be on a stage for people to see," Lynn, 77, said in a statement.
