Video: Talkin' 'Big Love' and Emmys with Bill Paxton

Even though it continues to get rave reviews from TV critics, HBO's "Big Love" hasn't received much Emmy love. That's probably because it aired early during the eligibility periods covering its first two seasons. This year, season three debuted in January so it'll be fresher on voters' minds. It hasn't been totally out of mind, though. It's received a few tech nominations and a guest-acting bid for Ellen Burstyn. After its first season "Big Love" made the top-10 runoff of drama series and Bill Paxton made the top 15 for best lead actor before the lists of nominees were whittled down to five in each race. So it's on Emmy radar and this season it's received its best reviews yet. That may turn into big things at the Emmys.

"Big Love" and Paxton were nominated for best series and actor at the Golden Globes in 2007 and 2008.
