LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Kristin Chenoweth picked up the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series at the 61st Annual Primetime Emmys on Sunday night – and the “Pushing Daisies” star wasted no time taking advantage of her new resume booster.
“I’m unemployed now so I’d like to be on ‘Mad Men,’” she said while accepting the award. “I also like ‘The Office’ and ‘24.’”
ABC’s canceled “Pushing Daisies” wrapped up its second and final season earlier this year. Kristin was also nominated in 2008 for her work on the show.
“Thank you for recognizing a show that’s no longer on the air,” she told the crowd. Kristin is best known for her roles on “The West Wing” and Broadway’s “Wicked.”
