It wasn't the most-watched show, but AMC's "Mad Men" looks to be the most honored. After a surprise Golden Globe win for best drama series and best actor, the notoriously stodgy Emmy voters have apparently taken notice of the freshman show. Not only was it shortlisted for their best drama award, it's represented in each acting category, according to the Los Angeles Times. John Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery, and Christina Hendricks are all potential Emmy nominees.
"Grey's Anatomy" is close to matching "Mad Men" for semifinalist honors. With Patrick Dempsey, T.R. Knight, Sandra Oh, and Chandra Wilson all getting the nod, the only category they didn't make is Best Actress. Other SOAPnet favorites who made the cut? Kyle Chandler ("Friday Night Lights"), Sally Field and Rachel Griffiths ("Brothers & Sisters"), Jeanne Tripplehorn ("Big Love"), Naveen Andrews and Michael Emerson ("Lost"), and Jill Clayburgh ("Dirty Sexy Money").
