16 of 19: Jared Harris of 'Mad Men' on being nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series:

'I couldn't have been more honored and even a bit overwhelmed when I heard the news. Every role on 'Mad Men' is written with great detail and weight and Lane Pryce was no exception. I loved my time on the show - this is such an incredible way to walk away. Thanks to the incomparable Mr. Weiner and to my cast mates - Jon, John, Lizzie, Christina, Vinnie, Embeth, and everyone else - I can only be as good as those who I work opposite, and you are the best. To everyone at AMC, Lionsgate, the writers, and crew - my sincerest thank you, I had a blast.'

This is Harris' first Emmy nomination.
