Emmys post-mort

He was such a promising young Brit…

I have my beefs with this year’s Emmy noms — “The Big Bang Theory” wuz robbed! — but I’m heartened to know that the industry recognized the greatness of one particular “Mad Men” seg that achieved instant-classic status in the annals of TV drama.

“Guy Walks into an Advertising Agency” — the one where ditsy secretary Lois severs a guy named Guy’s foot with a lawn mower — was nommed for drama writing (Robin Veith, Matthew Weiner) and drama directing (Lesli Linka Glatter).

Thank goodness.

“One minute you’re on top of the world. The next minute some
secretary is running you over with a lawn mower.”
