After four previous nominations for playing Joan Harris on “Mad Men,” is this finally the year that Christina Hendricks will win her first Emmy award as Best Drama Supporting Actress? We will ask Hendricks about the upcoming Emmys when she joins us for a live chat this Wednesday, August 13, at 1:00 p.m. PT; 4:00 p.m. ET on Gold Derby’s home page.
Over the past four years, Hendricks lost Emmys to Archie Panjabi (“The Good Wife“) in 2010, Margo Martindale (“Justified“) in 2011, Maggie Smith (“Downton Abbey“) in 2012 and Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad“) in 2013. How does Hendricks feel about being amongst this acclaimed group of actresses?
We will also break the news to Hendricks that only five Drama Supporting Actress ladies in Emmy history have received more nominations than she curently has in this race: Tyne Daly has eight noms for both “Christy” and “Judging Amy,” Nancy Marchand has seven noms for both “Lou Grant” and “The Sopranos,” Betty Thomas has seven noms for “Hill Street Blues,” Barbara Bosson has six noms for both “Hill Street Blues” and “Murder One” and Stockard Channing has six noms for “The West Wing.”
As Hendricks and the “Mad Men” cast are approaching their final season in 2015, what are her thoughts about the impending end of the TV phenomenon that put her on the map? Can she give us any spoilers about the final episodes, or is she (predictably) sworn to secrecy by creator Matthew Weiner.
“Mad Men” has infamously lost all of its prior 31 acting Emmy nominations. If Hendricks could pick one person (other than herself) that could win an Emmy, who would she choose? Lead Actor Jon Hamm? Lead Actress Elisabeth Moss? Supporting players John Slattery, Vincent Kartheiser, January Jones or Jessica Pare?
