So the Golden Globe winners were announced last night.  Sadly, it didn't garner much viewership.  But let's not place blame as to why it didn't come together, just live another day fashion-impaired since we didn't see the red carpet coverage, and congratulate all the winners.

I believe everyone who landed on the list is truly talented.  Now, I'm pretty sure I'm biased since these were my last watched movies, but really, Lars & the Real Girl and Juno definitely were robbed.  I wish I can recall where I read the article, but there was something recent in the past few months.  But the jist of it was that while Little Miss Sunshine brought in good coverage for indie flicks, this year, indie films have not been receiving lots of love.

But enough about movies, let's talk about television.

Congrats to Jon Hamm and Mad Men! lovelovelove the show!

Perhaps, my adoration stems from being an advertising student and former agency intern, but the show would be amazing even if I had no point of reference.  Or maybe I'm just envious that Don Draper gets to be a brilliant ad executive, take power 3-martini lunches, and has three lovers.  If that isn't the life, I don't know what is. 

So let's end with one of the best clips from television history (Note:  please take into account that I've only reached my quarter life, and do not have a huge library of television moments.)
