'The Closer's' Kyra Sedgwick on the Emmys: 'I'd love the show to get nominated'

Kyra Sedgwick has gotten an Outstanding Lead Actress Emmy nomination for the first four seasons of TNT's drama "The Closer" for her portrayal of tough Southern detective Brenda Leigh Johnson, brought in to work with the Los Angeles Police Department's Major Crimes Division.

Zap2it caught up with Sedgwick to discuss her and the show's chances in the 2010 Emmy nominations. "The Closer" has only received nominations for Sedgwick's performance -- never a nomination for the show itself. How does she react to that?

"I'd love the show to get nominated one year," she says. "I think we deserve it. It's one of the best dramas on television, and we've been overlooked in that area."

The show's producers submitted an episode called "Strike Three" in the drama series category this year. "It's actually one with [guest star] Mary McDonnell where a fellow LAPD officer has been murdered," Sedgwick says. "At the end of it we're all in our dress blues and everybody in uniform; it's a really great episode."
