As you might know if you followed my AMC NEWS live Emmy tweeting, we were reporting Sunday night not just from the Nokia Theater, but also later in the evening exclusively from the AMC Emmy Awards after-party at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. AMC picked up five Emmy Awards, including two repeats: Best Actor for Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston, and Best Drama for Mad Men.
I spoke with Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, Rich Sommer, Michael Gladis, Aaron Staton and Robert Morse about what it was like to be up on stage accepting the Academy’s top honors, and how it feels for Mad Men to win the best writing and hairstyling statues.
What I really wanted to know, however, was what show creator Matthew Weiner meant when he said during the post-Emmy news conference that Mad Men is about to “explode” this season.
“It gets pretty interesting. It’s pretty nuts,” explained Sommer, who plays Harry Crane on the show. “The rest of this season is stuff that I never, ever thought would happen.”
