WWD: What are you looking forward to tonight?
J.M.: Well, I’m looking forward to sitting down. My feet are killing me, it’s the first day wearing these shoes. Seeing all the people who are coming, it’s going to be really fun. People are in a good mood. It’s the first day of Emmy Weekend and people are celebrating, they’re relaxed. I think the tension starts to build as the weekend goes on.

WWD: What makes the Emmys so important?
J.M.: TV has never been hotter than it is right now. People are talking about “Breaking Bad,” they’re talking about Kerry Washington, people are obsessed with TV right now. That’s an exciting thing. You see the wattage of events has gone way up. We did a story in The Hollywood Reporter this week that, in terms of fashion, Emmys are the new Oscars. Every top designer wants to dress people for the Emmys when they used to only want to do film stars for the Oscars. The whole as a television industry has been elevated. So have all aspects of the businesses around it.

WWD: Who are you rooting for?
I’m not really rooting for anyone but I have to say I’m a huge “Breaking Bad” fan. I watch it religiously I think it would be great if we saw a bunch of awards for “Breaking Bad” this year.
