Why can't Jon Hamm win that Emmy?
Unfortunately, none of the Fab 4 from Mad Men won Emmys this year (Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery and Elisabeth Moss....and Vincent Kartheiser was not nominated AGAIN); however I was happy to hear the Mad Men cast won for Best Drama (4th year in a row), and Barry Pepper won for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for his role as Bobby Kennedy in The Kennedys. Pepper and Tom Wilkinson in particular were outstanding in the series, they were so believable as Bobby and Joe Sr.
One show I must start watching immediately is Downton Abbey (Masterpiece); I have heard nothing but wonderful things about it, and I love period dramas. The show won several Emmy awards tonight and I love Maggie Smith's work (including her stint as Mother Superior in Sister Act, of course).
Over the weekend I read an interesting interview Christina Hendricks gave to Hadley Freeman at Guardian.co.uk, it can be viewed here. I have to hand it to Christina for putting up with all the scrutiny as well as she has!
