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.

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.

It was musicians' night at West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont.
Singer John Mayer was looking for a table to meet up with friends at the famed hotel during a recent night out. The singer sported a large, cream-colored cowboy hat and a fitted, dark jacket, and seemed calm and composed during his visit to the packed nightspot. Also on the patio that night: Zooey Deschanel, who took a spot in a secluded section with a girlfriend. The New Girl star – and She & Him singer – seemed "cheery and perky," an onlooker tells us.
And Lenny Kravitz (starring in the upcoming The Hunger Games) was hanging out with an entourage of about six pals, and he held court on a sofa, which was barricaded off by chairs to protect the group.
