'The Good Wife' spreads good news to Emmy voters

June 1, 2010 |  8:33 am

Extra! Extra! Read all about what's really good about "The Good Wife" in a new facsimile newspaper titled "For Your Consideration" that was sent recently to the 14,000 members of the TV academy.

Instead of excerpting snippets of TV reviews like most Emmy campaign mailers do, "The Good Wife" package features extensive chunks of four rave articles from the Hollywood Reporter, the New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly and the Los Angeles Times. The leading photo: the March 12 cover of Entertainment Weekly hailing "The Good Wife" as "Our No. 1 Pick."

Good Wife 1 Emmy

"The Good Wife" star Julianna Margulies picked up two top prizes earlier this year. She won best drama series actress at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards. The series was nominated for best drama series ensemble by SAG (the equivalent to best series) but lost to "Mad Men."

Thus, it's safe to assume that show and star are major Emmy contenders. Margulies was a longtime Emmy darling during her heyday on "ER." She was nominated for all six of her seasons as a series regular: twice in supporting and four times in lead. She won the supporting slot for the first season of the show in 1995.

Inside "The Good Wife" Emmy mailer is a DVD with two episodes: "Pilot" and "Heart."
