Golden Globe Nominations

December 15th, 2009 § 6

The 2009 Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning!

View the complete list here.

I’m particularly happy for Michael Emerson, Glee (woo Jane Lynch!) True Blood, Dexter (woo Michael C. Hall and John Lithgow!), 30 Rock, Mad Men (woo Jon Hamm!), and The Office.

With Ricky Gervais hosting this year, the night could turn out to be kind of awesome.

Attention Mad Men Fans!

August 14th, 2009 § 0

If this article on Mad Men’s Season 3 opener doesn’t get you excited for Sunday night, I don’t know what will.

The Season 3 premiere on Sunday begins and ends with two wonderfully conceived and executed scenes and, when the hour closes, it leaves no doubt about its lofty goals. “Mad Men” wants to be indelibly brilliant. And after two seasons of accomplishing just that, there’s no reason given in the premiere to have any doubts about the third.

I can almost smell the bourbon and Lucky Strikes already.

Jon Hamm is dreamy, whether he admits it or not.

The Onion’s AV Club interviewed Mad Men’s Jon Hamm about being Don Draper, hanging out with comedians, and being Liz Lemon’s almost perfect boyfriend on 30 Rock:

Well, on 30 Rock it was played for laughs, and comically exaggerated. I’m certainly not the best-looking person on the planet, and I would never ever say that. And I don’t think anybody really would, with a straight face, especially people who know me. But, you know, it’s funny. At the end of the day, the 30 Rock writers have to get out of that scenario they’ve built for themselves. If Liz Lemon and Dr. Drew fall madly in love, then there’s no more show. So you have to kind of create something that’s going to break this thing up. And my character’s not a bad guy; he’s not anything but a good guy. So the funniest way to get out of that was the way they did, which was to make this person almost functionally retarded, and yet completely lauded and celebrated, with all of his shortcomings overlooked because he’s handsome. I think that says a lot about our culture, where we’re willing to excuse people if they are celebrities, or they’re pretty, or whatever. This sort of shallow way that sometimes our culture tends to look past things.

Mad Men starts this Sunday!!! FINALLY!!!

“I wanna tell you something because you’re very dear to me. And I hope you understand it comes from the bottom of my damaged, damaged heart. You are the finest piece of ass I ever had. And I don’t care who knows it. I am so glad I got to roam those hillsides.”

– Roger Sterling to Joan Holloway, Mad Men
