By my count, the creator of Mad Men who is also widely disliked in Hollywood has given 3,368 Q&As to the various entertainment media recently in hopes of winning another Emmy. There’s one week left for voters to state their preferences. By all means vote for individual actors and others on the show. But don’t give him the nomination. Here’s why: Mad Men sucked for the first half of its 7th and final season. With the exception of the 2nd episode "A Day’s Work" which showcased Jon Hamm and Kiernan Shipka and Elizabeth Moss at their best and featured writing that was at turns funny and filled with pathos, the other episodes were boring. Yes, even that scene in Episode 7′s "Waterloo", where Bert Cooper dies off-camera after witnessing the moon landing then reappears to Don Draper and sings The Best Things In Life Are Free while surrounded by young women, which wasn’t half as entertaining as it should have been. So please deny Weiner. If for no other reason than that he’s trying too hard. It’s unseemly.
