‘Mad Men’s’ Matthew Weiner to Receive International Emmy Founders Award

The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will present the 2014 International Emmy Founders Award to “Mad Men’s” Matthew Weiner.

The creator, executive producer, writer and director of AMC’s “Mad Men” has been nominated 11 times and won three Emmys for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. Weiner most recently won the WGA award for Best Episodic for season-five episode “The Other Woman.” Weiner recently wrote and directed the feature film “Are You Here,” which stars Owen Wilson, Zack Galifianakis and Amy Poehler and will bow this summer.

“With ‘Mad Men,’ Matthew Weiner redefined period television and created a global cultural phenomenon that has dramatically changed the television landscape,” said Academy president and CEO Bruce L. Paisner. “We look forward to honoring his creative talent with our Founders Award, a few weeks before the final episodes of this great series.”

Weiner will accept the award at the 42nd International Emmy Awards Gala on Monday, November 24, in New York City.
