‘Mad Men’: Spinning the Globes

Hidden amid the embarrassment of the modified Golden Globes was the fact that the Hollywood Foreign Press actually made some great choices in the TV categories.

Don_lgThat roar you heard Sunday night was Season Pass cheering the wins for AMC’s rookie drama “Mad Men” and its charismatic star Jon Hamm. Also very deserving were Glenn Close for her role as the cutthroat attorney in FX’s uneven drama “Damages” and Tina Fey for her role in Season Pass fave “30 Rock.” Kudos also to the HFPA for choosing the least obvious choice for its top comedy series with HBO’s “Extras.”

Too bad these folks didn’t get their moment in the sun. Oh well, most of them have the chance to repeat as champs at next year’s back-to-the-glitz Globes ceremony.
