True Blood Star Blasts Emmy Snubs: "F--k Awards!"

Michelle Forbes, True Blood PRASHANT GUPTA/HBO

Michelle Forbes doesn't hold back when saying how she feels about True Blood being pretty much shut out of this year's Emmys.

"Excuse me, but f—k awards!" says Forbes, who plays the very evil but deliciously sexy Maryann Forrester in the hit vampire series.

"That's not where the glory is. The glory is in the audience," she adds. "That's who we tell the stories for. It's not for, with all due respect, the critics and not for the awards shows, but for the audience."

And as we all know by now, True Blood not only has a loyal and dedicated audience (me included!), but…

The series' following keeps growing with every episode. Sadly, season two's finale is on Sunday.

Forbes, who you may already know from her Battlestar Galactica days playing Admiral Helena Cain or as Gabriel Byrne's wife on HBO's In Treatment, admits she never had an interest in vampires or the supernatural before joining True Blood.

"She doesn't have a duality, she has a quadruple-ality," Forbes says with a laugh. "They came up with this character that is running around in evening dresses and playing in the dirt and she has mad domestic skills and a butler and then there's dancing and the food. It's been so much fun."

Also fun? Getting to watch the real-life romance blossom between Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer.

"It really is a beautiful partnership to witness, and I don't say that lightly," Forbes says. "It's not often that you meet two people so wholly suited for each other."
