  • I haven’t seen Glenn Close in Damages (although I hear she’s fantastic), and I know Law and Order doesn’t get much love around here — but Mariska Hargitay’s performance in her Emmy episode alone is worthy of recognition. Absolutely gut-wrenching stuff.

    I’m thinking Close will win. Former Oscar winner. Doing tv now. Like Field. No big surprise. Movies are geared toward youth. On a side note, I loved Hargitay on “falcon crest.’ lol Jeez, how old is that?
