John Slattery - "Mad Men" (FYC clip) : As Roger Sterling, Slattery is an addictive personality. My father repeatedly tells me he and "Red" are the only two reasons he still watches (a statement both understandable and infuriating). His transformation in season 7 was a subtle one, marked and masked simultaneously by his moments with Don. That is, until Roger took charge in the season finale. Now he seems poised to be a top tier player for the final few episodes next year, and a fifth Emmy nod would be worthy precursor to his real prize: television immortality.
