Elisabeth Moss Downgraded from Lead to Supporting for Emmys

Team Mad Men is getting strategic about garnering as many nominations as possible at the Emmys this year. In hopes of scoring acting nods for both Elisabeth Moss and January Jones, they are submitting Moss as a supporting actress candidate this year (she earned a nomination for lead actress last year). The thinking behind the switch, the Hollywood Reporter says, is to win a lead actress nomination for Jones, who has been snubbed the past two years. Well, if that's their goal, they better hope voters haven't been watching Saturday Night Live this season. [The Live Feed/HR]
