More Gilmore Goodies: Along with the scoop in this week's chat, I can tell you that Rory's going to be going all Ryan Atwood (of The O.C.) in the new season: "Emily is making over Richard's pool house," Edward Herrmann (Richard Gilmore) told me at the WB party. "That's where Rory is staying, and we're getting her ready for her first court appearance, talking to a lawyer, etc., so it's an interesting episode." Adds Kelly Bishop (Emily): "It's literally the next day after the season closer. And Emily's really very happy."
As for the show's continual Emmy snub (which Lauren Graham addressed in the chat), Herrmann says: "We feel rotten, frankly. We can't understand it, after five seasons of a show that's written with passion and wit and some wonderful acting. The whole show is well done, and not to be recognized after five seasons, something's not right. I don't know whether it's a backstairs problem between the Emmy committee and WB, or egos, I don't know what it is, but it certainly doesn't have anything to do with the actors or the people making the show. On the other hand, you say ouch, and then you just go on, and you say thank you to the critics, thank you to our wonderful fans, and keep watching, because we think it's good." We, too.
