Emmys 2013: 'Breaking Bad's' Anna Gunn plays it cool on red carpet

Anna Gunn looked stunning and relaxed heading into the Emmys at the Nokia Theatre on Sunday. The reason, she said, was because this is her second nomination for her role as Skyler White on the hit show "Breaking Bad," so she's not nearly as nervous as she was last year.

"I was more terrified," she said. "This year I'm a little more calm, plus it's much cooler this year."

Indeed, this is the coolest weather the Emmys have seen in years. Plus this year, for the first time, a shade screen has been erected above the carpet. Gunn and the other stars heading into the theater were sweat-free.

Gunn says she doesn't know what to expect inside, that she's just happy and honored to be nominated. She also mentioned that she'd like to pen a follow-up piece to an op-ed she wrote this summer for the New York Times about the sexism she perceives is involved in certain extreme expressions of hatred toward her character.

"I wanted to write it," she said of the essay. "It was a 1,500 word piece ... but it had to be reduced into one topic rather than the multilayered topics I initially wrote."

Although she was happy with how it turned out, as well as with the public discussion it engendered after its publication, she said, "I'd like to follow it up so I can encompass all the other issues involved with being on TV and playing female characters."
