January Jones and Ed Helms Switch Categories at 2012 Emmys


Previously submitting as lead actress in a drama, the 'Mad Men' beauty moves to supporting category, while 'The Office' star switches from supporting to lead actor in comedy category.

January Jones has apparently set a new strategy to earn a recognition at the upcoming Primetime Emmy Awards. Previously submitting as lead actress in a drama, the Betty Francis of "Mad Men" is switching to supporting category this year, which will put her up against co-star Christina Hendricks.

Jones was only nominated once as lead actress in a drama, which was back at 2010 Emmys. She lost the trophy to Kyra Sedgwick of "The Closer". Previously, another "Mad Men" actress Elisabeth Moss had switched from lead to supporting in 2010, but was back to lead in 2011.

Also switching category this year is Ed Helms. A representative for "The Office" actor has confirmed that the Andy Bernard depicter submits himself as lead actor in a comedy after running for supporting player for the past six seasons.

Helms will occupy the ballot slot that previously was taken by "The Office" alum Steve Carell. Despite earning six Emmy nominations through his role on the NBC mockumentary, the Michael Scott depicter never won any of them.
