Emmys 2013: Christina Hendricks slept through nomination for “Mad Men”

Christina Hendricks, the ravishing redhead that set America’s heart ablaze with her role as Joan Harris on AMC’s “Mad Men,” slept through the news of her Emmy nomination Thursday.

“I just found out about 10 minutes ago,” Hendricks said by phone from New York City. “I went to see a play last night and I turned my phone on silent — so I took the luxury of sleeping in until noon. So I’m exactly where I was when I heard: in bed.”

She’s only in New York for a few more days because her work will soon be done on co-star John Slattery‘s directorial debut, “God’s Pocket,” which also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman.

“He’s amazing,” Hendricks says of Slattery, who plays Roger Sterling on “Mad Men.” “But I’m almost done and I get to come home. I’m ready for a staycation.”

What is it about “Mad Men” that keeps devoted audiences coming back year after year?

“I think it’s the writing. It’s extraordinary — since season one it’s been consistently extraordinary and groundbreaking,” Hendricks said. “And Matt Weiner writes such rich characters. People continue to connect with them, even after six seasons.”

That’s certainly true of Hendricks‘ character.

“I think people are very fond of Joan because she’s a survivor, and she’s strong and competent and smart,” Hendricks said. “People really root for her, and she says the things that people wish they could say. And the things that she says are incredibly surprising and satisfying.”
