'Burn Notice's' Sharon Gless: Emmy nod, 'orgasmic' hit, 'sexy' Miami

"It's very encouraging," Sharon Gless says of her 10th Emmy nomination for her 10th TV series, "Burn Notice."

"I like being nominated. I'm not ashamed to say it," she says of her supporting actress nod. She also recounts the 1983 to '88 competition between her and "Cagney and Lacey" costar Tyne Daly.

Sharon won twice. Tyne won four times.  "I got really good at being gracious," she admits with a grin. "I had it down."

Sitting in her hotel room on Friday (July 30) at the Beverly Hilton -- on a break from the Summer TV Press Tour madness -- she chatted with Zap2it about her "orgasmic" new show.
