"Mad Men" Wins Golden Globe as Best Drama
If there is any silver lining in that hideous disaster of a cloud that was last night's "Golden Globes" special it is most definitely the recognition of AMC's brilliant period drama "Mad Men" and its star Jon Hamm.
AMC's first venture into the original series territory about the boardrooms and the bedrooms of the 1960s New York turned out to be a sleek, sexy and smart drama about egomaniacal advertising executives and the women that dared to love them.
Here are several stills from this remarkable series known for its meticulous attention to detail and accurate portrayal of an era marked by astoundingly casual prejudice and unabashed sexual manipulation.
AMC has commissioned a second season of 13 episodes, but its premiere date may be delayed due to the ongoing writers' strike in Hollywood. Season 1 has yet to be released on DVD.
