1[on who deserves the 2013 Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series] I love Anna Gunn. She's great. And we share the same manager, so I feel like there's a sisterhood there.
2"If something strikes me as really funny, very intriguing or really touching, then I just go and do it. It's never about managing my career in a way that this would be a good move. I have enough people telling me what to do, so I think that when I read something, if I admire the writing and who's directing it, I just go for it." Interview, April 2001.
