My new favorite show, Mad Men, won 6 emmys last night. Props to them! I should add that the show's main character, Don Draper, is played by Jon Hamm who is a graduate of the University of Missouri. So, we've produced him and Brad Pitt.... not a bad docket if I do say so myself.
"It's official. Mad Men is the best drama on television. The show won an Emmy saying as much, in the process beating out contenders Boston Legal, Damages, Dexter, House and Lost. Creator Matthew Weiner got his own statuette as well for Best Writing, Drama Series for the pilot "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." (The Best Actor, Drama award went to Bryan Cranston for Breaking Bad.) Four other Emmys were awarded to Mad Men as part of the Creative Arts Prime Time Emmys last weekend, giving the series a grand total of six Emmys."
