"Mad Men" Gets 16 Emmy Nominations; But Somehow, Not January Jones

You can read the whole emmy nomination list here, and I'll refrain from some long winded rant about the few unexpected good things ("Flight of the Conchords" & "Breaking Bad" love; Jeremy Piven & "Two and a Half Men" snubs; "Mad Men"'s near sweep of the writing category, Sarah Silverman, Aaron Paul, Tracy Morgan & Kristin Wiig's nods), to the many somewhat expected bad things ("Friday Night Lights" and "The Shield" basically no major nods (though "FNL"'s best casting nomination is very well deserved); the snubs of Allison Pill, Christina Hendricks, Mary McDonnell, Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler, among many, many others; and I mostly love "30 Rock".. but 22 nominations!? It was a fairly uneven season). But let me just focus in on one ridiculous, unfortunate occurrence in this morning's nominations:

Where the fuck was January Jones? Did these voters actually watch "Mad Men"? Anyone that could honestly suggest Mariska Hargitay or even Jones' "Mad" co-star Elisabeth Moss (at least in lead.. Moss was not around as much in season 2) deserves a nomination over Jones is out of their mind. At least you're in good company, J.J.... Sarah Michelle Gellar, Lauren Graham and you should start a club.
