“The Good Wife” (CBS)
Emmy history: Three noms, plus seven noms outside this category, including one win.
The case: Baranski’s character, Diane Lockhart, went through some major changes last season. When she’s faced with the possibility of leaving the Lockhart/Gardner law firm for a spot on the Supreme Court, her decisions became critical.
Trivia: Baranski raised her children without television because she couldn’t monitor what they were watching all the time.
