Christina Hendricks, Mad Men
Mad Men has never won an acting Emmy (0-19). Crazy, right? Hendricks is most well-positioned to end that dubious streak this year. It’d be easy to purely make Joan the office sexpot, but Hendricks has layered the redhead single mom with poise and confidence, and she was at the center of one of the most polarizing twists this season: Joan prostituting herself to secure the Jaguar account and a partnership stake. Regardless of your feelings about that development, we can all agree that Hendricks acted the hell out of that story line.

Christina Hendricks struck gold when she was hunting for her wedding dress – she found her dream gown while she was searching for a Golden Globes outfit.
Actor Geoffrey Arend proposed to the Mad Men beauty in late 2008 but Hendricks was in no hurry to plan her look for the big day.
She went for a dress fitting with designer Carolina Herrera for 2009’s Golden Globe awards – and instantly fell in love with the “perfect” gown for her wedding.
Hendricks tells Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine, “It was a classic column dress by Carolina Herrera with a sweetheart neckline, and a vintage-looking bustle on the back. It was the only one I tried on!
“I’d been to get a dress for the Golden Globes and, while I was there, they said, ‘Why don’t you try this?’ It was perfect.”
The actress and Arend married on 11 October, 2009.
I just want to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you! Thanks for visiting and contributing to the site <3

When Mad Men star Christina Hendricks wore a gown by Aussie designer Johanna Johnson to the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards, her sales skyrocketed because of the exposure.
It’s only normal for well-known designers to get hectic and busy during awards season, but it’s a different story for Australian Johanna Johnson. Johnson, whose creation was worn by Mad Men star Christina Hendricks on the red carpet, has been making Christina Hendrick‘s gown for over a month due to its intricate details and beading.
Unlike other stars who opt for well-known designers such as Armani, Vera Wang and Alexander McQueen for their red carpet choices, Hendricks sought the services of Johnson when the actress discovered the designer through a stylist. The first Johanna Johnson piece Hendricks had was a cape she wore for a February premiere, which she then listed as one of her most favorite things along with the diamond earrings her husband gave her.
Upon learning Hendricks‘ interest, Johnson‘s team started to make a gown to present to the actress as an “Emmy potential” dress.
“We just made this custom piece for her to her measurements and I sent it to her as a gift and said ‘I’ve made it specifically for you” says Johnson in a post. When Johnson found out that Hendricks will wear her creation to the awards show, she immediately opened up an online store in hopes that fans will want the same look.
“The red carpet is incredibly powerful. It was literally within minutes of [Hendricks] walking on the red carpet that we recorded our first sale, and I would say by the end of the day we would have doubled on the previous day’s sales, and that’s probably being conservative.” Johnson said in a report by the Sydney Morning Herald.
The intricate dress landed Hendricks to many “Best Dressed” list, and was praised by the actress herself when interviewed about it on the red carpet. Hendricks described the dress as “extraordinary” before stating Johnson‘s name as the designer.
”I thought it was so beautiful, it was the only one I tried on” added the actress in the same red carpet interview.
CAA has signed Emmy-nominated Mad Men star Christina Hendricks. Hendricks, who plays Joan Holloway on AMC’s drama series, co-stars with Ryan Gosling in the Nicolas Winding Refn-directed Drive and the Weinstein Company’s I Don’t Know How She Does It. She had been with the Kohner Agency.
