Mad Men Bets on January Jones

Mad Men is finally putting its muscle behind January Jones, who it hopes to boost into an Emmy nomination by submitting last year’s Lead Actress nominee Elisabeth Moss (Peggy Olson) as a supporting actress. Jones, who has won two Golden Globes but not a single Emmy, would then face better odds without competing directly against Moss. This would also benefit the drama as a whole, as it would place two strong candidates in two of the awards show’s top spots (with Jon Hamm always a contender for Best Actor). Jones will face tough competition from the likes of 24’s Cherry Jones, Chloe Sevigny of Big Love, and Sandra Oh from Grey’s Anatomy.
