The Golden Globe nominations will be announced tomorrow. And it’s the last time Jon Hamm’s Don Draper will be eligible for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama. He won in 2008 after the show’s debut season, was nominated 4 times after that, but not last year or the year before. Full Story

Look, if Jon Hamm didn’t win, people would riot in the streets. (Just kidding, a bunch of people would just complain on Twitter.) It certainly was his to lose, and it wouldn’t be the first time a long-running character walked away empty handed (like Steve Carell for Michael Scott and Hugh Laurie for House. Full Story

This post is for Duana who cared so much about Sally Draper and will therefore always care about Kiernan Shipka. And you? She caught my eye this week with two really great outfits on the red carpet. Check out this adorable green dress. The colour is terrific on her. The construction is fresh and cute. Full Story

Mad Men Series finale recap (Season 7 Episode 14 recap) If that’s how the story ends, then Dick Whitman is dead forever. Don takes himself to California to find and feel all the things that aren’t Don – the things that are from another part of his life – but Don keeps resurfacing. Full Story

Mad Men Season 7 Episode 13 recap SPOILER ALERT I wasn’t expecting that. Of all the lives on this show that we think are of extreme consequence, Betty’s was not the one that I thought we were going to have to account for – to make a value judgment on, in terms of what degree of impact one of these lives has had on us. Full Story

Mad Men Season 7 Episode 12 recap You know, last week Matthew Weiner gave an interview about the endless analysis (hi Matthew!) of the show, and dealing with people who don’t like where he’s taken the last seven episodes, and basically saying people who want to complain should get their own show and see what decisions they make. Full Story

We’ve Done It Before

Mad Men Season 7 Episode 11 recap Yes, we’ve done it before. We’ve seen this go down – the passion and ticking clock and the corralling of clients. I got just as excited this time as I did back then. I wanted to see the excitement and adrenaline start to flow like it did years ago when they snuck out of Sterling Cooper under cover of night. Full Story

Mad Men Season 7 Episode 10 recap Well, that’s where Lou Avery has been all this time. I am of two constant minds where these last episodes are concerned. On the one hand, I don’t want to see so many tertiary characters when we have so little time left – I keep crossing my fingers that we’ll get Don and Betty in a room together again, but really, we spend this much time characterizing Joan’s babysitter? Then, on the other hand, I think this is why I’ve always loved Mad Men – it’s a world of people constantly coming in and out who affect your life marginally or massively given the day. Full Story

Mad Men Season 7 Episode 9 recap You know that thing parents say? “I love you, I just don’t like you right now”? That’s how I feel about this episode of Mad Men. I get everything that went on, in a logical manner – or at least, I get why they thought they needed to do this episode. Full Story

Mad Men Season 7 Episode 8 recap You know, every Mad Men has a tenor. There’s always a tension as you wonder what’s going to happen next, and a general unease. But this was the first episode in a long time where it felt straight-up sinister. There’s no longer any hiding or pretending about what we’re up against. Full Story

Last night in Hollywood at the Mad Men Black & Red Ball… It’s probably the last major carpet for the show before it concludes in about 8 weeks. So Jon Hamm went all out in a white jacket tux. And Christina Hendricks went all out in a dramatic gown… After all, it’s a ball. Full Story
