She's had recent TV turns on 'The Good Wife,' 'Fringe' and 'How to Make It In America,' but now that she's on TV each week playing Virginia, the matriarch of the quick-witted but desperately average Chance family, we mostly see her in jeans and a t-shirt or her character's maid uniform.
Not exactly glamorous. So with TV's big night fast-approaching, I was curious to find out what she was planning on wearing to the awards (Sun., Sept. 18, 8PM ET/5PM PT on Fox).
"Oh I don't know yet. I can't answer that yet ... I don't know," she said on the L.A. set of 'Raising Hope.' But I kept pressing ...
What about color? Her answer was positively Virginia-like.
"Color? What about it?," she replied with a laugh. "Everybody complains about black, that nobody wants to photograph black, and the magazines don't care about black. So apparently you're not allowed to wear black. But I don't know ... maybe I'll shun the conventional wisdom."
Whatever it is, we're sure she'll look fabulous.
