There’s only a handful of shows that feature remarkably complex women enduring and reaching for the stars in a man’s world. And this year’s breakout show is definitely AMC’s Mad Men.
Entertainment Weekly gives props to the three lead actresses in the 1960s-era, Emmy-winning show: Christina Hendricks who plays sex pot office manager Joan; Elisabeth Moss who plays secretary-turned-copy editor Peggy; and January Jones who plays vengeful housewife Betty Draper.
“I love that I get to represent these powerful, smart women from the ’60s who tried to break through the glass ceiling,” Moss, 26, who is up for a Golden Globe and SAG award, tells EW.
While Jones, 30, who is up for a Golden Globe, said, “The episode where Betty finally kicked Don out of the house, the response I got from friends and family was ridiculous!”
