matt weiner (with cast) accepts emmy for best drama series!
last night mad men won the emmy for "best drama series," and became the first basic cable program to ever win the prestigious award. in previous years, it has always been a broadcast network to take home "best drama series."
the emmy follows mad men's win of a peabody award in june and, earlier this year, it won the golden globe for best drama! and, in what may be an indication of the shows realism, the new york public library is currently showing the exhibit, "the real men and women of madison avenue (and their impact on american culture)."
finally, matt weiner (the shows creator) won an emmy last night for his script, "smoke gets in your eyes."
