Actress Julianna Margulies still gets rejected from TV shows - she lost out on a part on Gabriel Byrne's cable hit "In Treatment" just last year, in 2009. The former "E.R." star was desperate to land a role on the critically acclaimed drama and offered to audition for it - to prove she was perfect for the part.

"There was a great role and they said, 'Well, we're not sure you're right'. And I said, 'I'll audition ... ' I went and did a great audition and still got rejected. And there I was ... going, 'What am I doing? This is horrible.' But you do it because you love it (acting)."

However, Margulies wasn't fazed by the knock-back for too long - her role in hit U.S. show "The Good Wife" won her a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama in early February.

No suprise seeing how out of touch media execs can be. Not recognizing Ms. Margolies brilliant acting ability only confirms that belief. My only thoughts to Ms. Margolies are-just keep embarrasing them!

Never will forgot meeting you at breakfast at the Marriott Hotel in Praque several years ago. You rank among the most likeable Hollywood stars.

Saw you in your new series last night, and you're still the best. Your acting overshadows the cast and you have so much depth!
