Archie Panjabi Wins Emmy

Archie Panjabi won the Emmy for best supporting actress on Sunday night for her role as Kalinda Sharma on the show The Good Wife. She was born in West London to Sikh parents. This is the first Emmy win for Panjabi, who has also had roles in Bend it Like Beckham, and The Constant Gardener. Panjabi appeared genuinely shocked at her win. She had tough competition including fellow actress Christine Baranski also from The Good Wife. She also thanked Angelina Jolie during her acceptance speech, her costar in A Mighty Heart. The Good Wife was one of my favorite primetime dramas last season and it’s good to see Panjabi recognized for her work on the show. Congratulations Ms. Panjabi!
