During TheWrap's far-ranging interview, the five-time Emmy nominee talks snubs, sexism in Hollywood and what it would take for her to slip into superhero spandex
Christina Hendricks just wrapped her eighth season as one of cable's most beloved characters. While the actress is devastated to turn the page on “Mad Men,” she couldn't be more excited to start her life's next chapter.
“It's so sad to end the show,” Hendricks told TheWrap. ”But you have to look at it as a world of opportunities. Where is the world going to take me next? I had no idea it would take me to where I've been.”
AMC has aired over 80 episodes of “Mad Men” since the period drama premiered July 19, 2007, and its final seven installments will run in 2015. Hendricks’ character Joan Holloway (or Joan Harris, depending on how far along she is on her romantic arc) plays a central role in the vast majority of them. Suffice to say she's put in a lot of hours at the office.

In case you can't place her name, Kate McKinnon is the “SNL” comedian who does the hilariousJustin Bieber and Ellen DeGeneres impressions. Also, she's played a key role in seemingly every viral moment from the long-running sketch comedy series over the last three years.
McKinnon was just rewarded in her third season on the NBC property with not one, but two Emmy nominations. The first is for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, the second in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category for her contributions to the music video “(Do It On My) Twin Bed.”
