Lily Tomlin already has six Primetime Emmys and one Daytime Emmy, but that didn't make her nod as guest actress in a drama for Damages any less sweet. But she was just as deeply disappointed that the series, which has likely been canceled, did not get acknowledged in the best drama category. "I was just sick about that. That kind of took the steam out of it," she tells TV Guide Magazine. The best thing about playing her character, Marilyn, was "that she was not a good person. And it was a very fun set. Marty [Short] and I would try to make Glenn [Close] laugh in between takes by being monkeys. And we'd always get her to crack."
