In Defense of Sally Field's Emmy Nomination

In Defense of Sally Field's Emmy Nomination Sally Field received her annual Lead Actress in a Drama Emmy nomination today, and a lot of people are up in arms about how unfounded that is. And while I whole-heartedly agree with Angel that Mary McDonnell, January Jones or Katey Sagal deserve that nomination more than she does, what's done is done, and it's not like Sally Field hasn't done good work. As I always say to everyone who gives me crap about still watching this melodramatic soap -- it's not the actors' faults that Brothers & Sisters is bad. Most of them are actually doing some magic elevating these contradictory and ridiculous scripts.

Case in point: I don't know what Sally Field's Emmy clip was, but it should have been this.



Oh, and the most satisfying moment of the entire season, both writing-wise and performance-wise: Nora slaps (newly, inexplicably, but such is this show) evil Tommy.



So if we're going to complain about knee-jerk nominations in this category, can we focus on Mariska Hargitay instead, please?
