All hail The Good Wife. Julianna Margulies took home her third Emmy—her second for playing Alicia Florrick on the hit CBS drama—at the 2014 Emmys, beating out Kerry Washington, Robin Wright, Lizzy Caplan, Michelle Dockery and Claire Danes for the honors.
During her acceptance speech, Margulies thanked her co-stars, particularly Christine Baranski—she called her a "beacon of light"—and Josh Charles. Margulies also honored the show's writers, including creators Robert and Michelle King and took a jab at cable dramas that don't produce 22 episodes a year. The Emmy winner told E! News' Catt Sadler that this year's win is special.

"I think mostly because I got to thank my writers publicly and just do a little bit of an homage to them and Christine Baranski and Josh Charles…After five seasons that people are still watching and that it's such a great vehicle for an actor and actors who come on our show and that people are still appreciating it is a big deal," Margulies said.
As for where the third Emmy is going to live, Margulies wasn't quite sure. "I'll find a place for her," she said.
Margulies won her first Emmy for playing Nurse Carol Hathaway on NBC's ER. She played George Clooney's love interest on the show, but she won't talk about the actor's love life in real life. "We made a pact," she said when asked about his upcoming wedding to Amal Alamuddin. "I am a loyal and good friend."
