"The Good Wife" heartthrob and Baltimore native Josh Charles was better behaved at this year's Emmy Awards because he wasn't there. After getting snubbed for a nomination this year, Charles attended last night's Ravens game with his pops. He tweeted a picture of the live game at M&T Bank Stadium along with the message: “Having so much fun at the Emmy's!” He also tweeted a picture of him and his father at the game with the message: “Me and my Pop, post game!

When Emmy Award nominations were announced last month, two Maryland-made series were front and center in the news. HBO's “Veep” and the Netflix drama “House of Cards” made the short list for best comedy and drama, respectively, with a pack of other nominations for writers, directors and stars.
