Carrie Preston joins us on the red carpet at The Emmy® Creative Arts Awards. She is nominated Outstanding Guest Actress In A Drama Series as Elsbeth Tascioni on The Good Wife. This is her second nomination. She was awarded an Emmy for her role as Elsbeth Tascioni in 2013.
Elsbeth is her favorite character to date. She says, “She allowed for me to be creative. She is not like anyone else on television, a character that is unexpected. She is the joker in the deck. When I saw her on the page I saw how I could make it work. It was a creative challenge.”
Preston and her husband Michael Emerson, also an actor, are pretty down to earth as a couple. She said, “This is what we do, we are artist, remaining grateful and humble for the opportunities we get in this industry. We don’t see ourselves as any different than others. He is very sweet and supportive. He made me breakfast this morning and brought me flowers.”
Her key to a successful day for her is meditating and walking my dog. This allows for her to envision the day in her mind. She has a rescue poodle mix that is adorable.
The Good Wife Emmy® nominations are Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series, Outstanding Guest Actress In A Drama Series, Outstanding Costumes For A Contemporary Series, and Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series.
