17 of 24: John Slattery of 'Mad Men' on being nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama:

'I was actually out of the house, taking my friends to the ferry on Fire Island, so I was away when I got the first couple of calls. It would be silly to start to expect things like this to happen. So yes, I was surprised. The good thing about being on Fire Island is that Internet-wise, it's like 1982 there. It's pretty easy to disconnect,' the actor said in a statement to TVLine.

This is Slattery's fourth Emmy nomination. He has been previously nominated in 2010, 2009 and 2008 for his role on 'Mad Men.'
