"The gods who nurse this universe think little of mortals' cares. They sit in crowds on exclusive clouds and laugh at our love affairs. I might have had a real romance if they'd given me a chance. I loved him, but he didn't love me. I wanted him, but he didn't want me. Then the gods had a spree and indulged in another whim. Now he loves me, but I don't love him." - Cole Porter

Love her in Raising Hope. She was nominated for an Emmy in 2011 for lead actress in a comedy for that role, but was snubbed this year for a nom Maybe she would've had more luck had she submitted herself as a supporting actress. It's clearly a supporting role in Raising Hope.

I've loved her for quite some time, probably since The Goonies. Just a phenomenal talent.

I'm not sure I'd be quick to say she's a supporting role on Raising Hope. The number of story lines that her character drives keeps her pretty much in the forefront. Now Cloris Leachman, on the other hand, probably one of the best supporting actresses/roles in any current primetime comedy. I know some people have said Maw-Maw is very one note, but I love that the writers/producers have been very smart not to over-saturate the show with her, which could easily happen with the wacky, off-beat character (look at how quickly Urkel came to dominate Family Matters, for example).
Did you know that every day Mexican gays cross our borders and unplug our brain-dead ladies?
