Mad Men’s Matthew Weiner on Jon Hamm’s Big Win and Being 6 Months Pregnant With His Next Idea

21 September 2015 3:09 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Last night, after HBO and all of the other Emmy celebrations shut down, Matt Weiner kept things going after midnight at the AMC party with the rest of his Mad Men crew. Vulture caught up with Weiner as he reflected upon seeing his writers and cast assembled together for one last time. While we chatted, the last remaining cast member Christina Hendricks left Boa in West Hollywood and bade Weiner good night. Vulture also caught up with Weiner at a pre-Emmys BAFTA tea party, and the following conversation combines the two. Vulture spoke to Weiner about Mad Men's final night at the Emmys, how happy he was for Jon Hamm, and what he’s working on now. How was your night? It was very emotional. All of us hadn't been together since May. Everybody scattered to the corners of the Earth and took different jobs. I get to see all my writers, »

How Did Mad Men Do at the Emmys?

20 September 2015 8:35 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Before this year's awards, Mad Men had 15 Emmys to its name, and seven consecutive swings and misses for Jon Hamm in the Outstanding Actor category. Where did those wins go? The show most notably took home Best Outstanding Drama for its first four seasons, along with three writing awards for Matthew Weiner. It's also picked up eight Creative Arts Emmys, half of which have gone to hairstyling. Other than that, not a single leading or supporting Mad Men actor has won an Emmy award. Not John Slattery, not Elisabeth Moss, and nope, not Christina Hendricks, though all have been nominated multiple times each. This year Mad Men was up for six Prime-time Emmys for the second half of its final season. Let's run through them, shall we? Two of those were for episodes up against one another in the same category — writing — and it lost to the Game of »

One Emmy voter's top secret final ballot: 'Mad Men,' 'Parks and Rec,' Amy Schumer and ...'

20 September 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Our frequent forum poster helmetz also happens to be a member of the TV academy in the writers branch, and this year he has revealed his choices in all categories he voted in, including the top program races. He explains, "It was very weird voting this year. With this new system, any voter who cast a ballot in a particular category in the nominating stage is eligible to vote on the final winner.  For me, that meant I could now vote in all program categories as well as writing categories. A lot more watching to do!" -Break- 'Game of Thrones' ahead of 'Mad Men' in tight race for Emmy history He voted for "Mad Men" as Best Drama Series, saying "Matthew Weiner was probably under the most pressure to create a final season worthy of his show's pedigree. And he delivered." "Mad Men" ranks a close second in our Emmy predictions, »

Mad Men Spin-Off Never Happening, Says Series Creator Matthew Weiner

20 September 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Don Draper has left the building—and he's never coming back. Sad to say, but a Mad Men spin-off is never going to happen. "I'm not judging people who do spin-offs, but despite the temptation and I love these characters and love working with these people, I'd like to leave the show the way it is," the show's creator Matthew Weiner told me yesterday at BAFTA Los Angeles' annual pre-Emmy Tea Party at the Sls hotel. (Check out our coverage of everything Emmys.) In fact, AMC executives only once brought up the idea of a spin-off. "There was sort of a demand during one of my contract negotiations that along with a lot of other things that I do a spin-off as »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actor in a Drama Series

17 September 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Mad Men" has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with the TV Academy. Matthew Weiner's series won Best Drama at the Emmys for its first four seasons, among other numerous trophies. But its leading man has never won. Despite earning a nomination every year "Mad Men" has been eligible (plus guest star nods for "30 Rock" in three seasons and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" this year), Hamm has lost every single year (spurring him to create the "Losers' Party" with fellow snubee Amy Poehler). Will he join the ranks of the unjustly ignored like Jason Alexander and Steve Carell, or will the Academy finally reward him in his final year as Don Draper?  Read More: Jeff Daniels on the End of 'The Newsroom': 'It's Really Difficult to Do Well' The answer will be "no" if Kevin Spacey has anything to say about it.

Gold Derby is predicting that HBO's "Game of Thrones" will finally win the Emmy Award as Best Drama Series next Sunday.

But Weiner does also add, "I love that Gold Derby exists, and love that people are obsessed with [awards coverage]." When told that the odds are virtually tied between his show and HBO's fantasy epic, he says, "I'll take those odds." -Break- Related: Complete list of 2015 Creative Arts Emmy winners According to exclusive Gold Derby odds, "Game of Thrones" is slightly out front with 10/9 odds but those may improve t. »

Mad Men Creator Matthew Weiner Says Jon Hamm, Jennifer Westfeldt Having "Tough Time" With Split

13 September 2015 11:38 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has been a friend to both series star Jon Hamm and his longtime girlfriend, Jennifer Westfeldt, and the Hollywood couple’s split earlier this month has been hard for both, to say the least. “It’s a tough time for [both of them],” Weiner told Us Weekly exclusively at the 2015 Creative Arts Emmys held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Saturday, Sept. 12. “I know both of them very well. They are both really gifted artists and it’s rough. But it’s [...] »

Toronto Kicks Off With Dancing Jake Gyllenhaal, Quivering Michael Moore

10 September 2015 9:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 40th annual Toronto International Film Festival kicked off on Thursday night with a rousing double bill at the Princess of Wales Theatre: opening night feature “Demolition,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal, followed immediately by the Michael Moore documentary “Where to Invade Next.”

The evening started off with Canadian director Jean-Marc Vallee preserving his hot streak at Toronto with the world premiere of his black comedy “Demolition.” Unlike recent pictures that disappointed in the inaugural slot, such as the execrable “The Fifth Estate” and the hackneyed “The Judge,” “Demolition” received an enthusiastic reception. It’s not due in theaters until April 8, but Fox Searchlight hopes that the quirky story of an investment banker (Gyllenhaal) who suffers a breakdown after his wife dies in a car crash can build buzz months before its release.

The screening of “Demolition” was preceded by a look back at Toronto’s four-decade history. Set to disco music, »
