I don’t know if I’ll manage to get through the entire awards show — these things tend to make me itchy after a while — but I’m extremely happy to see Kyra Sedgwick win. I’ve had this odd soft spot in my heart for her for years now, probably starting around Singles, and I always look forward to seeing her in new roles. The Closer is such a fantastic show, and she is phenomenal on it. If you’ve somehow managed to miss it — pick up the first season, and catch up on the re-runs.
In a rut of regurgitated procedural police dramas, The Closer stands out with smart, original characters and strong, well-crafted stories that don’t have to rely on salacious “ripped from the headlines” drama. If you’re not watching it, you should be. It’s as simple as that.
