Emmy RoundtableJulianna Margulies, Connie Britton, Christina Hendricks, Regina King, Melissa Leo, Katey Sagal and Kelly MacDonald walk into a room ... no, this isn't the setup of a lame joke, it's what happened at the Hollywood Reporter's Emmy Roundtable.

These seven talented ladies -- all of them Emmy contenders -- gathered to discuss all things TV.

In the clip below, the women talk about the difference between film and TV work, and why working in TV is easier when you have a family.

"I like them both," Margulies said. "I don't not want to have my kid and I don't not want to have my job, so you make it work. And you sleep when you're dead."

'Boardwalk Empire' Season Finale: A Father, Son, and Brother Plot Nucky's Destruction"The past is never dead. In fact, it's not even past." Novelist William Faulkner wrote these words about the American South. But they could just as easily apply to the crumbling seaside kingdom of 'Boardwalk Empire' (Sun., 9PM ET on HBO). The show's season finale is ironically titled "A Return to Normalcy" -- but in the end ... nothing really ends.

'Boardwalk Empire' is set during the Roaring Twenties, but its ideas about politics and corruption are as current as today's headlines. Some things never change, after all. In the course of the finale, Crime boss Enoch "Nucky" Thompson (Steve Buscemi) defeats his foes, securing his position at the top of the Atlantic City criminal empire. "God bless America!" he says, right before his moment of political triumph. (Some things really never change.)

But Nucky's victory might just be an illusion. Waiting in the wings are three men who want to take him down.

'Boardwalk Empire' -- Van Alden Kills in the Name of ... Who?A baptism is a religious ceremony that invokes death, life, and rebirth. But there are different kinds of baptism. There's baptism by water, by fire ... or by blood. On the new 'Boardwalk Empire' (Sun., 9PM ET on HBO), all three take place -- at the same time.

Straight-arrow Federal agent Nelson Van Alden (Michael Shannon) is after Atlantic City treasurer and bootlegging-mastermind Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi). Van Alden is all about rules -- and religion.

At the same time, he's morally compromised. He's sexually obsessed with Margaret Schroeder (Kelly Macdonald), Nucky's mistress. In the past, Van Alden's guilt-ridden thoughts have resolved themselves in various odd ways ... including whipping himself as punishment for his "sinful" longings. On tonight's episode, things get even more violent.

It's got 1920s classic cars, men with big guns and a nattily-dressed, slightly-mustachioed Steve Buscemi brandishing a cigarette. It's looks just like a scene right out of a gangster movie.

And then you see that it's HBO's just-released trailer for its upcoming new series 'Boardwalk Empire.' Produced by Emmy-winning 'Sopranos' writer Terence Winter AND Martin Scorsese, you know that this show is not just going to be gangster: It's going to be all-out, balls-to-the-wall, bloody gangsta.

Watch the video after the jump.
