Due to Mad Men's 2-year drought on the Emmy front (after a 4-year winning streak as Outstanding Drama Series), they've decided to go all out with their "for your consideration" ads to Emmy voters this year (Yes, this is a thing. It's weird to me too.) with some very clever and period-perfect print ads. And as lowly viewers, we just get to enjoy them.
A thing like that!
Jon Hamm needs an Emmy for this role badly, but I'm in the Bryan Cranston for final episodes of Breaking Bad camp this year I'm afraid (or if you're so inclined: Matthew McConaughey for True Detective, but I lean toward the former). Next year, though. The Emmy Awards 2015 better include Jon Hamm's name :) I'd also love to see Vincent Kartheiser (Pete Campbell) and Kiernan Shipka (Sally Draper) get some nomination love soon.
Have you been enjoying Season 7 Part 1 better than Season 6 like I have been? It's not quite back to the heights of Season 4 (my personal favorite), but just like Don, MM is getting its mojo back.
