This morning brought the nominations for the 67th Emmy Awards, and while the winners (and losers) won’t be revealed until September 20th on Fox, the nominations themselves are enough to stir up some conversation.

wondercon exclusives

WonderCon kicks off Friday for three days of comic convention madness. Movie wise, there isn’t a ton going on, but there’s always fun to be had and lots of exclusive merchandise to covet. One of our favorite spots at WonderCon is the Hero Complex Gallery booth. They always have beautiful prints that are only available at WonderCon and this year is no different. We’ve already shown you a few of them, a Batman series by Casey Callendar, but today we’ve got even more. Spider-Man, Wall-E, Watchmen, Star Wars, it’s a pretty solid cross section of cool stuff.

Plus, right now, you can get an officially licensed Mad Men poster from the gallery, by Milton Glaser, celebrating the final episodes that start this weekend. See all the WonderCon exclusives and more below. Read More »

Mad Men final season

During the final stretch of Breaking Bad, AMC announced plans to stay in Albuquerque with Better Call Saul. And though The Walking Dead is still going strong, AMC is expanding that world with a companion show. So as the end of Mad Men looms, might AMC consider keeping the party going with another new series?

As it turns out, they already have. The network reportedly looked at several possible ideas for a Mad Men spinoff, including one set in the modern day. Find out what other concepts they considered — and why none of them came to fruition — after the jump.  Read More »

Mad Men Season 7 garden party - Don and Peggy (header)

This spring marks the end of an era. For the characters of Mad Men, that era is the tumultuous 1960s; for viewers of Mad Men, it’s the show’s seven-season run as one of the finest dramas on television.

AMC split the last season of Mad Men into two parts, Breaking Bad-style, so that the first half aired last year while the second is scheduled to kick off in April. To prepare us for the end, the network has released a slew of promo pics for the final season. See the Mad Men final season images after the jump.

UPDATE: The first Mad Men final season promo has just been released, along with one more photo — check ’em out at the end of the post. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Mad Men ads

Emmy voters are currently deciding on the best in television over the past year and, all over the streets of Los Angeles, your favorite TV shows are plastered on billboards. The Walking Dead, True Detective and many more are being pushed by their respective networks, hoping voters check them out or at least have their memories jogged about shows that finished a while ago.

Of all the ads emblazoned up and down Sunset Blvd or Highland Ave., the ones for Mad Men really stand out. Which makes sense. A show about advertising should have the best advertising. While the show’s creative team has done a great job with that in the past, these ads take things to another level. Check them out below. Read More »

Mad Men Season 7 trailer

With less than a month to go until the premiere, AMC has released a new Mad Men Season 7 trailer — or several, rather. Given how secretive showrunner Matthew Weiner is about spoilers, it shouldn’t come as a huge shock that they don’t give away a whole lot about what we’ll be seeing next season. Nevertheless, we’re just happy to see our old SC&P friends again.

Watch the promos and check out a whole bunch of new images featuring Jon Hamm, Elisabeth MossChristina HendricksJohn Slattery, January Jones, and many more after the jump.

Mad Men final season images - Peggy Olson and Don Draper

Now that we’ve all finished analyzing and overanalyzing that psychedelic Mad Men poster, it’s time to turn our attention to the first Mad Men final season images.

As Mad Men marketing goes, these pictures look fairly straightforward. They just show Don Draper (Jon Hamm) at the airport and on an airplane, with Megan (Jessica Paré), Peggy (Elisabeth Moss), and Roger (John Slattery) taking turns beside him. But the accompanying interviews with showrunner Matthew Weiner should give you something to chew on until the show comes back.

See the pictures and read Weiner’s comments after the jump.
