Emmy-nominated stars share their fave TV shows

(Continued)

"They had every kind of possible character," said the actress, who remembered watching the show while starring on "Blossom." ''I would have loved to be anything on 'Northern Exposure,' but mostly Rob Morrow's love interest. That would have been my choice. "

Kidman, a first-time Emmy nominee for her lead role in the TV movie "Hemingway & Gellhorn," said she was raised on "The Brady Bunch" and "Bewitched."

"Growing up in Australia, the miniseries was such a big, big thing. It was something that launched my career because I did miniseries in Australia," she said. "I did a thing called 'Bangkok Hilton' and one called 'Vietnam,' which was on the Vietnam War in the '60s and was a hugely rated show. That was my big break, really, as an actor."

Sarah Paulson, nominated for her supporting work in the TV movie "Game Change," loved "Who's the Boss?"

"Angela and Tony were who I wanted to be when I grew up. I wanted to have that relationship," she said. "I watched a lot of television growing up and they were like my surrogate parents. Angela and Tony. I loved 'em."

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Maya Rudolph and Zooey Deschanel were all fans of "The Cosby Show." Ferguson and Rudolph even dreamed of joining the family.

"It felt very familiar," the "Modern Family" actor said, "and I wanted desperately to be a part of that family."

Rudolph, nominated for hosting "Saturday Night Live," said if she were to join the show, "I would have to be a fictional cousin, because I don't think they needed any more children. I don't think the Huxtables needed any more children. But, listen, if Denise needed a best friend to go shopping with, that's who I would be."
