Elisabeth Moss has said she's proud of Jane Lynch hitting on her Mad Men character in the opening skit of the 2011 Emmy Awards.

In the musical opening, Leonard Nimoy tells Lynch that he is convinced she is the “logical choice” to host the Emmys this year, then warns her against letting the audience know that “we all live in this one building.”

Ignoring the warning, Lynch races through the building dropping in on television shows.

On the set of cabler AMC's Mad Men (winner of Outstanding Drama Series), she is asked to fetch some coffee.

“You're hilarious,” she tells Don Draper (played by Jon Hamm). “I'm not a secretary. I'm the host of the Emmys.”

“The Emmys?” Pete Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) scoffs. “What you should be doing is learning how to type and firing the guy who gave you that man's haircut.”

“Well, a lot has changed since 1965. In fact, women can marry other women,” Lynch responds. Turning to Peggy Olson (Moss) she adds with a wink and a smile: “Hey, Peggy.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

“That was so cool for me,” Moss, 29, told gay glossy The Advocate, “because I love Jane Lynch. Honestly, I'm such a huge fan of hers that I couldn't even speak around her that day when she was on set. When I got that script and found out that I was going to be hit on by Jane Lynch, I could not have felt prouder or more honored.”
