Pay close attention to that 'Mad Men' poster

There's been plenty of speculation about the poster for "Mad Men's" sixth season, and creator Matthew Weiner's confirmed that it means just as much as you think it does.

"I think it will make sense after the premiere, actually,"  Weiner told CNN at the season six premiere screening Wednesday. "It is specifically related to the season. It came to me in a dream."

'Mad Men's' Jared Harris still in shock over Emmy nod

Celebrating his Emmy nomination for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series over a bottle of wine in Wales, Jared Harris - a.k.a. “Mad Men’s” Lane Pryce - is metaphorically pinching himself.

“It’s still a bit of a shock actually,” Harris told CNN. “The prognosticators would say … a bunch of people could have been in the dark horse slot,” he added, noting, [“Game of Thrones’ ”] “Peter Dinklage is the favorite.”

Sally had a big night too, but right now it's time to pour one out for Mr. Pryce.

Farewell, Lane; you'll always occupy prime real estate in our hearts for that one time you kicked Pete Campbell's a**.

The effort to secure the Jaguar campaign was in full swing, and all (male) hands were on deck to help land the account. And because only dudes are capable of dreaming up slogans for cars – it says so in the Bible – Peggy was relegated to handling the firm's other business.

She stood by as The Men were rewarded with cool stuff like a lobster dinner after an exhausting afternoon of chain smoking and mailing in lazy pitches equating Jaguars to mistresses.
