We first fell in love with Edie Falco as a dramatic actress when she played mob wife Carmela Soprano on HBO’s Sopranos. Now America loves her in the caustic comedy Nurse Jackie. But Edie was shocked when she won the Emmy for Best Actress in a Comedy last night. She doesn’t think she is funny!!! We disagree.
“As soon as someone calls you funny you’re not funny anymore. I don’t really find myself funny!,” the officially funny actress said backstage. Edie’s win marks the first time an actress who previously won an Emmy for Best Actress in a dramatic role crossed over and won for comedy.
Edie was so surprised at her win that she didn’t even have any plans for celebrating post-Awards!!
“I hadn’t planned on celebrating, I was planning on going home and ordering room service so we’ll see where the evening goes!” she said.
Do you think Edie is funny?
