Video: Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss Reacts to AMC's Controversial 'Split' Decision

Get More: Emmys, Video

Elisabeth Moss isn’t ready to let Peggy Olson go.

Addressing AMC’s controversial decision to air Mad Men‘s seventh and final season in two separate seven-episode chunks, the actress told me Sunday on the Emmys red carpet that she’s embracing the split season (to air over a two-year period) with open arms.

“It gives us all a chance to not have to say goodbye yet,” she said, “and I like that.”

She also points out that AMC’s divide and conquer strategy isn’t exactly hurting Breaking Bad.

Press PLAY below for my full Moss Q&A, during which the actress artfully tackles this question: Which of her two 2013 Emmy nominations meant more — the one for Mad Men or Top of the Lake? (Someone had to ask it!)

  • Don’t know which colored hair Elisabeth Moss looks better with: blonde or brunette.

  • Of course she’s happy to embrace the split. It gives her and her fellow costars (namely Jon Hamm) a chance at actually winning an Emmy since the second part of their split won’t coincide with Breaking Bad. It may take a couple more years, and all the way up to season 7B, but I’d like to see someone (probably Hamm most of all) win an Emmy for acting.

  • Brilliant actress. She really needs to be awarded an Emmy for playing Peggy before the show is over.
