'Godless' Creator Scott Frank / Allison Janney

Our Emmys-themed series continues: Scott Frank packed his Netflix miniseries 'Godless' with train robberies and shootouts — but challenged Western norms by putting women in charge of the town. 'Godless' has 12 nominations, including Outstanding Limited Series.

Allison Janney has been nominated for an Emmy for her role on CBS's 'Mom.' She told Terry Gross in 2014 that her relationship with her brother, who was an addict, helped inform her character. She also talks about playing C.J. Cregg on 'The West Wing,' and what it's like being the tallest woman in the room.
